Additional info

Open Days are your opportunity to get a feel for what life is like at BU, find out more about our courses and excellent placement & employment opportunities. It's going to be a busy day - we usually welcome thousands of people on the day, so Open Days are a great chance to experience our campuses and explore the local area. We can’t wait to welcome you, so you can #belongatbu. Throughout the day you will get to: attend subject talks by academic staff, go on a tour of the campus and get to see inside a house in our on-campus accommodation, attend talks on financing your course, accommodation, student life and tips for your UCAS application, enjoy a bus tour around the Bournemouth area including a view of our accommodation, beaches and the town centre.

Further details

We encourage our visitors to explore public transport where possible, with excellent coach and train links into Bournemouth Travel Interchange and a BU shuttle bus throughout the day. There is limited parking on our Talbot Campus, local pay & display facilities on our Lansdowne Campus and an Open Day park & ride service. Blue badge parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. We’ll send you further details in the week prior before the Open Day.

Write your own story at Bournemouth University

At Bournemouth University, we create forward-thinking graduates with the skills and flexibility to succeed throughout their career, wherever it may take them. Where could your story lead?

There’s a real energy about BU and we want you to have an outstanding and personalised student experience. We are large enough to offer our students diversity, yet small enough for you to feel part of a friendly and thriving cosmopolitan community.

Why choose BU?

There are plenty of reasons to study at BU, and here are some that we think stand out:

  • Learn from research-led academics who are experts in their field
  • Courses designed with direct input from employers
  • Excellent Careers and Employability service
  • Placement opportunities
  • Beautiful location

BU is in the top five universities in the UK for boosting graduate salaries, according to rankings published by The Economist.

BU was fourth in the rankings, showing that graduates with a Bournemouth University degree can expect to earn £2,730 more than the average graduate with similar qualifications, with an average salary of £26,671.

The university has also risen 18 places in the Guardian University Guide 2018.

The rise - up to 61st in the league table rankings from 79th the previous year - follows similar accolades for the university this year, such as the THE Young University Rankings, where BU also ranks among the top 200 universities in the world.

BU is also celebrating success in other university rankings; it rose 20 places in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017. In the same survey, BU was also rated among the top 20 universities in the UK for its links with industry.

We have over 17,000 students, 2,000 of which are international students from around 100 countries, creating a lively and diverse student experience. Explore our range of courses to discover your future at BU.

Placements

We believe placements significantly increase your employability, and at BU you will have the opportunity to undertake a placement as part of your course. We currently have more students on sandwich courses than any other university in Great Britain, and are therefore extremely well prepared to offer you a great range of different and exciting placement opportunities.

In the past our students have worked for a wide range of large international companies as well as smaller family run firms, including: Disney, BBC, Sky, IBM, Panasonic, Chelsea Football Club, Olympic Developments Committee, Framestore Animation and many more.

Scholarships and bursaries

We offer a range of scholarships recognising academic, sporting and musical excellence, including an unlimited number of Academic Excellence scholarships from £1,500 if you achieve AAA+ at A-level or DDD at BTEC*. Our bursary package offers additional funding support too. Visit our website to find out more about funding options.

Funding support is also available at postgraduate level.

Students’ Union

The Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) aims to have a positive impact on every student’s journey by 2016. In order to help us deliver a great student experience, SUBU has over 100 clubs and societies, has its own nightclub and offers numerous volunteering opportunities. SUBU also provides a voice for BU students and has 750 trained student representatives. We know that SUBU plays a major role in creating the BU buzz.

Postgraduate study

We deliver world-leading, life-changing research. In the 2014 REF, 96% of our research was rated as internationally recognised.

At the heart of our Lansdowne Campus is our Executive Business Centre (EBC), where we deliver many of our postgraduate courses from the Faculty of Management, including the Bournemouth MBA. A focal point for the business community, the EBC is a contemporary building offering facilities such as an e-library, video conference suites and modern seminar rooms. Lansdowne Campus is also home for many of our students, and we offer dedicated postgraduate accommodation.

Studying for a postgraduate qualification can be a great investment, so we offer a number of scholarships to help bright people build bright futures. We are pleased to guarantee a £2,000 Academic Scholarship to anyone starting a BU Master’s degree with a 2:1 or higher.*

Fees for postgraduate courses vary, so please visit our website for information, or to find out about bursaries.
