Bournemouth University (BU) is one of the UK’s leading modern universities; we create forward-thinking graduates with the skills and flexibility to succeed throughout their career.  Our courses are designed with direct input from employers, and we recognise the importance of work experience as part of your degree.

 

The BU community includes around 19,000 students; with approximately 2,600 international students from over 120 countries. Our four faculties offer degrees in creative, professional, technological, scientific and humanities specialisms.  We are ranked in the top 150 young universities in the world according to the QS Top 50 Under 50 rankings 2019.

 

There are many reasons why so many international students choose BU. Studying at Bournemouth University will give you the opportunity to progress into some of the most exciting careers, such as Computer Animation & Visual Effects, Media Production & Communication, Forensic & Archaeology, Sports & Events Management, History, International Business and Management, Politics & Social Studies, and much more.

 

Research is an integral part of BU, providing solutions to real-world problems and informing the education we deliver. Our students are a key part of this research, co-creating knowledge with us and playing a crucial role in everything we do. In the UK Government’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 96% of BU research rated as internationally recognised or higher, with 18% ranked as world-leading.

 

Bournemouth is also a great town to live as an international student. We are located in one of the most beautiful and historic areas of the United Kingdom. Situated on the south coast of England, and less than two hours from London by train, Bournemouth enjoys fantastic scenery and some of the country's mildest weather. Bournemouth’s seven miles of beautiful beaches have been crowned the best in the UK in the 2019 Trip Advisor Travel Awards and the 6th best in the whole of Europe.
