BOURNEMOUTH UNIVERSITY

Bournemouth University has more than 19,000 students and we are ranked as one of the top 200 young universities in the world, but our ambition doesn’t stop there. Our vision is to be recognised worldwide as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice.

Our research shapes and changes the world around us, providing solutions to real-world problems and informing the education we deliver. Our students are a key part of the research we conduct, co-creating knowledge with us and playing a crucial role in everything that we do. In the Research Excellence Framework 2014 96% of our research was defined as internationally recognised or higher, with 72% deemed to have an outstanding or very considerable impact on society.

Bournemouth University benefits from a wonderful location, situated between one of the UK’s newest national parks, officially the best beach in Britain (according to TripAdvisor, 2018) and the second largest natural harbour in the world, with the World Heritage Jurassic Coast located nearby. Good transport links means that London is only two hours away.

FAQs

Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit www.ucas.com to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
