Bournemouth University


Bournemouth is a lively, cosmopolitan town on the south coast of the UK, known for its sandy beach and relaxed atmosphere. 

With 20,000 students (10% of the town’s population) and a large number of language schools, Bournemouth has a fun, international atmosphere. The town is home to vibrant nightlife, international cuisine, an array of watersports and a Premier League football team, AFC Bournemouth. 

The 10-kilometre long beach is a great place to relax in the sun, enjoy an evening barbecue or sip a beachside cocktail. You can also enjoy watersports such as surfing, kitesurfing, paddle boarding and jet-skiing, or join the many locals who run, cycle or skate along the seafront. 

The town centre shopping area has many places to enjoy a drink, plus cafés and restaurants including Brazilian, Chinese, Indian, Korean, Mexican, Thai and Vietnamese to name a few. There are also a number of international supermarkets selling a wide range of foods and other items. 

Near to Bournemouth, you’ll find the Jurassic Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage site), as well as the beautiful New Forest and historic places such as Stonehenge and Bath – with its famous Roman remains.
