Bournemouth University

Bournemouth University

Bournemouth University (BU) is based on the south coast of England and is recognised as one of the most innovative universities in the UK, creating a unique fusion of education, research and professional practice.

BU was the first university in England to receive a ‘Commended’ judgement for the quality of student learning opportunities from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), the highest award possible.

BU was awarded The Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2012 for its contribution to world-leading excellence and pioneering development in computer animation and graduates have gone on to produce Oscar-winning visual effects for the likes of Gravity, Avatar and Interstellar.
In the latest Research Excellence Framework, 96% of Bournemouth University's research was rated as internationally recognised or above, with 18% of that deemed to be world leading.
Graduate employment rates are consistently high at over 90% and BU has more students on placement than any other university in England.
BU has a community of almost 19,000 students from over 100 different countries. The university is an important player in the local economy – contributing in excess of £1 million a day to the South West region - and is widely involved in enriching the local community as well as its students.
