Bournemouth University (abbreviated BU) is a public university in Bournemouth, Dorset, England, with its main campus situated in neighbouring Poole. The university was founded in 1992 as one of the new universities, however the origins of its predecessor date back to the early 1900s.

Bournemouth University (BU) is situated on the beautiful south coast of England, less than two hours from London. The BU community includes over 17,300 students of which more than 2,200 are international students from around 120 countries , the institution offers more than 150 undergraduate degrees and over 100 master’s and doctoral degrees.

It is home to two campuses: the Talbot Campus, which is where students can find the majority of the university’s faculties and facilities, and the Lansdowne Campus, which accommodates the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences.

The university lays claims to a strong professional orientation with a focus on academic excellence and graduate employability. The courses are designed with direct input from employers, with many courses accredited by the biggest names in industry. 

It is particularly renowned for its media courses and BU is recognised as the only Centre for Excellence in Media Practice in the UK. Its former students have gone on to work on numerous award-winning productions in Hollywood, on films such as GravityStar WarsGladiator and Lord of the Rings.

Other areas of expertise include forensic archaeology and crime scene science, with some of BU’s faculty currently engaged in research into genocide in Iraq, Bosnia and Rwanda.

With more than 100 academic partners in the UK and around the world, students are encouraged to study or volunteer overseas to experience different cultures and gain life skills.

BU Graduate employment rates are consistently high at over 93% and BU has more students on a work placement than any other university in Great Britain.

As well as being just a short walk from Bournemouth’s bustling town centre, BU is within easy access to some of Britain’s best beaches, the New Forest National Park and the largest natural harbor in Europe, Poole Harbour, which formed from a drowned valley at the end of the last Ice Age.
