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.

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. 

Our activities are guided by a strategic vision for the future. We value creativity, innovation, partnership and enterprise with an attitude that is friendly, professional, inclusive and supportive. We are large enough to offer our students diversity, yet small enough for them to be part of a friendly and thriving cosmopolitan community.
