BUSAG meet weekly (usually Wednesday 1-2pm) to take part in all kinds of activities, from visiting interesting places to learning new skills. The meetings are complemented by a large social calendar which ranges from film nights to society nights out. We pride ourselves on the fact that BUSAG are the only society at The University of Birmingham who offer the chance to compete the Duke of Edinburgh Award with our partnership with Birmingham Scouts. A key part of both movements is volunteering BUSAG have strong links with the local Guiding units and Scout groups and love to help point our members in the right direction if they want to volunteer locally.
Membership for BUSAG is a student-friendly £5 which provides most of the weekly meetings at no cost and covers the national SSAGO membership fee. We also welcome Scouts and Guides from other universities around Birmingham.
