Bournemouth University (BU) is a public university in Bournemouth. The main campus is located in Poole. BU was established in 1992. Ever since its foundation, Bournemouth University has been an excellent institution of higher education. Speaking of- the university was a finalist for two prizes in British higher education (“University of the Year” and “Research Project of the Year”). The school was known for its professional courses, but since 2000, the focus has been research. Today, 16 000 students are enrolled in programmes at Bournemouth University, among those are 1 500 international students, making the campus a multicultural learning environment. The university has highly qualified teachers. Students receive an outstanding education and are able to gain insider knowledge through internships and study abroad (at one of the many of Bournemouth University’s many academic partners) throughout their studies. The university gained fame and recognizance because of its work in the media industries. Its Centre for Excellence in Media Practice (CEMP) is renowned. Graduates have worked on numerous Hollywood films. BU offers undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional development courses, as well as foundation degrees and top-up degrees. Many BU Alumni are living abroad and found work quickly after graduating as they were well-equipped for high-level employment
My program in brief – MA International Business Administration (postgraduate course), Lansdowne Campus, Bournemouth House was chosen by me cause of a forthcoming number of catching endeavors into challenging opportunities that were aimed to prepare an individual for a career in particular aspects of management.
Despite BU is one of Britain’s newer universities I was caught with the idea to pass through all of the 3 Stages in 2 years meanwhile to get acquainted with a wide range of University staff who possess commercial experiences and interests which would be definitely shared with you and it was my sincere interest to take full advantage of their expertise.
Therefore, I am more than happy to be graduated from the University, which has enriched my life with cross-cultural multi-faceted life, valuable knowledge, for my future managerial career. I used to work in groups with students from varied parts of the world, and from different degrees during my Masters in Management program.
Due to Bournemouth University’s ner-by-sea location, it’s a vibrant and marvelous place for those who adore the seaside and mostly sunny weather all year around.
A lot of the students are quite posh. The rivalry between BU and AUB is annoying, AUB students are actual angels.
My course was alright but I probably wouldn’t do it again. It was recommended as it covers lots of different areas of the media industry, however, you really don’t get to delve into any discipline to a sufficient extent. Instead I have a little bit of knowledge and experience in a bunch of disciplines but not enough to actually get hired anyway.
Properly think about whether you want to do a specific advertising, marketing, journalism, media production, etc. degree instead.View more

The sense of community within the Faculty of Media is great, with students working together to solve problems. The communication between students across academic levels means we learn from each other, with advice from their previous experience of the units. However I’ve had issues with the structuring of my course, with some assignment briefs being unknown for over a month. Overall I’ve found we all learn more from each other than the lecturers, though the amount of industry talks that are set up are extremely good.View more
Bournemouth University: Mediocre. A BA in Film at Bournemouth University: Amazing. I absolutely love my course and my faculty. Film at BU is 50% theory and 50% practice. The course gives students a lot of flexibility in terms of what they want to do and focus on. Every year, the course gets better as well as the facilities and equipment students have at their disposal. However, if you study anything other than film at BU you’ll be disappointed as the level of teaching and quality of students is quite low.View more
Bournemouth University is extremely accommodating, I’ve swapped course twice as I wasn’t sure what to do and the university has helped me with this every step. The university is in an amazing location and the campus called Talbot is easy to get to from accommodation and has everything you need for coffee, food and social spaces. The range of courses is brilliant however the uni could attempt to hire more studentsView more
