Bournemouth University


At Bournemouth University, our courses are crafted alongside leading industry experts, passionate about their subjects and your learning. Our approach of integrating our globally recognised research and industry practice means our degrees are designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need to pursue your passion.

Our motto is ‘To learn is to be changed.’ We are renowned for our research and teaching excellence in a range of subjects, including, forensic archaeology, business, health and as a Centre for Excellence in Media Practice.

We recognise your potential and will support you and give you the opportunity to gain real-world experience through placements, volunteering, and collaborative projects. And with over 100 clubs, societies and sports – and the opportunity to be part of our global BU community studying by the sea – that’s the difference of a degree from Bournemouth University.

We have over 19,000 students from all over the world and are focused on providing the best campus experience possible, while keeping you safe at all times.

We have two campuses at Bournemouth University – Talbot and Lansdowne.

Our great teaching is complemented by industry-standard facilities and support. We offer fantastic collaborative working spaces. Laptops you can borrow by the hour. Beach hut themed Technobooths and well-stocked libraries for getting assignments done, and after a long day you can relax on our rooftop cafes to help you wind down.

There are over 100 undergraduate degrees on offer, from 17 different subject areas. Many of our courses are accredited by the leading professional bodies allowing our graduates to gain an internationally recognised and industry-proven qualification.

Our outstanding academics come from across the world. They are specialists in their field and enthusiastic about their subjects. Many are at the forefront of current research and starting from the first week, academics often bring in guest lecturers and employers, working with many individual service users, carers and local organisations to contribute to lectures.

You'll have the chance to guide your own development with optional units, work placements, research opportunities and a host of other extracurricular activities. You'll be supported inside and outside of the lecture theatre as you tailor your time at BU to be everything that you want it to be.

Our courses are designed with your employability in mind. Securing work and professional experience as part of your degree can make all the difference in the competitive job market. We’ve got industry contacts and career-enhancing opportunities you’ll need to stand out.

We work closely with employers, practitioners and professional organisations. With placement options available on every undergraduate course, we pride ourselves on supporting our students to gain real experience and develop the skills employers seek.

 

 

Sand between your toes, time spent with friends, trying new sports and hobbies, making great memories – it’s all here waiting for you.

Bournemouth town is right on the seafront – the beach is a five-minute walk from the centre. Bournemouth has a friendly metropolitan feel, and you’ll find it has a good mix of department stores and independent boutique shops, along with food from around the world that will be tempting you into bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops.

Your time in Bournemouth doesn't need to be spent in the same place. A short journey can take you to some of the incredible surrounding areas of Dorset such as the Jurassic Coast or the New Forest.

As a member of our vibrant university community, there's plenty to look forward to, exploring Bournemouth and getting involved with the remarkable adventures BU has to offer.

Dive into the local area.
