Bournemouth University

United Kingdom | Bournemouth

Overview

Our website will, we hope, give you a flavour of what makes our university special, in terms of our academic expertise and business connections, whether you are a student, employer or prospective colleague.

Our university has come a long way in a short amount of time and we currently have more than 17,000 students of which 1,500 are international students from around 130 countries.

We have a strong professional orientation with a focus on academic excellence and graduate employability. By way of illustration, we are recognised as the only Centre for Excellence in Media Practice in the UK and graduates from the National Centre for Computer Animation have worked in Hollywood on such films as Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Star Wars, Madagascar and King Kong. Areas of research expertise include forensic archaeology and crime scene science in which, for example, staff are currently investigating genocide in Iraq, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Rwanda and the implications of unearthing 40,000-year-old human footprints in central Mexico.

Bournemouth University is at the heart of the largest non-industrial conurbation in Europe. It is in a wonderful location sandwiched between the UK’s newest national park, best beaches and largest natural harbour. It is home to a major financial services sector (JP Morgan Chase, Nationwide Building Society and Liverpool Victoria among others) as well as having the largest concentration of language schools outside London and many national headquarters including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Sunseeker International.

Bournemouth is world renowned as an international conference centre and plays host to major academic, professional and, of course, political conferences. It also offers one of the largest exhibition and entertainment venues on the south coast.

The university is a powerful player in the economic and cultural life of South West England. We are at the hub of a network of educational, business and local government partners and also played our part in the region’s preparations for the 2012 Olympics.

Bournemouth University has an excellent reputation among students, their parents and staff in colleges and schools. And, since my arrival in September 2005, we have strengthened this reputation and have considered what Bournemouth University should be like in the future. As a result, many exciting changes are now in train. In particular, we are building on our strengths, while developing new professionally relevant areas, investing more than £100 million in staff and facilities, and reorganising to maintain our focus on academic excellence.
