Bournemouth University

Bournemouth University (BU) is ranked among the top 200 most international universities in the world and in the top 500 universities overall by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings in 2016.

At the heart of BU’s success is the powerful fusion of research, education and professional practice, creating a unique academic experience where the sum is greater than the component parts. To achieve this we combine inspirational teaching, world-class research and the latest thinking in the professions to create a continuous and fruitful exchange of knowledge that stimulates new ideas, learning and thought-leadership. We are home to the world renowned National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA), a United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) accredited Department of Tourism & Hospitality and the only Centre for Excellence in Media Practice (CEMP) in the UK. 

Currently BU has over 17,000 students, of which 2,300 are international. Based in an area of outstanding national beauty with easy access from London, Bournemouth University offers a safe and welcoming environment for all our students, preparing them for that next step in their career.
