    [QUOTE=MeganRonnie;44789303] Anyone who has already been there what is the nightlife and shopping like in the area? & and without sounding stereotypical what sorts of people generally apply for bournemouth?/QUOTE]

    I lived in Bournemouth most my life.
    Shopping
    Shopping is okay but is inferior to the shopping in larger cities. My friends used to go up to southampton for shopping, their shopping centres are bigger and better. The biggest shopping centre in bournemouth is castle point, which nearly got taken down because the car park was falling apart or something.

    Nightlife
    Bournemouth doesn't have student nights every single day of the week like Leeds or Manchester, but there is usually something happening on the weekend. If you really want, you could find something to do during the middle of the week. I think Bar Me is open on thursdays, which is cheaper than going on the weekend. I've seen guys come down from salisbury to spend a thursday night in bournemouth, so it isn't dead during mid week.

    I think the most lively area at night is old christchurch road. I remember walking on that street and literally seeing 3 fights break out. They probably got kicked out the clubs and were roaming the streets. Inside the clubs you won't get people acting like that.

    People that go to bournemouth

    I guess they like beaches and non-british architecture. Like Brighton the city architecture is more colourful than most cities in England, you'll notice it if you drive down priory road and overlook bournemouth from the top of the hill. It's still quite British though, it's not like Rio or Long beach California. I think the university appeals mostly to art and humanities students, isn't that what the uni specializes in?

    hiya!

    I'm applying to Bournemouth uni for social work! And i was just wondering who else is applying... and for what course?

    Anyone who has already been there what is the nightlife and shopping like in the area? & and without sounding stereotypical what sorts of people generally apply for bournemouth?

    I'm so excited but also a little nervous!

    - Megan
    I don't go there yet, but from what I know, the nightlife is quite good! Apparently lots of little bar type places rather than big clubs which is what I prefer anyway.

    When I went to the open day, one of the first things I noticed about the uni was how... white it seemed compared to all of the other universities I had applied too. It had a real laid back atmosphere too.

    London Being one of the important place for Visual effects production for most of the movies around world.. After some research i found only 8-10 'A' listed schools around world who teach VFX and has updated equipments and BU is one of it. Considering exposure to direct industry and opportunities, past students recommendation and by seeing their work showreel i am very impressed and felt BU will suit me best Their course curriculum also good.. USA is good and best in world but they don't recognise my 3yr UG program they need a 4yr program and also very expensive..

    I've lived in Bournemouth all my life and I'd say there is quite a lot of nightlife during the week tbh

    Monday Lost Garden and Halo are open, Tuesday is Milk in the old fire station, Poundabout in Walkabout and Toast in Bar me, Wednesday is Fuzzy Logic in Cameo, Thursday I think Lola Lo do something and Bonsai too, maybe even Halo again as well! I've probably missed loads as there always seems to be something on in town!

    I was thinking about going there! I'm applying for Media Production and the student village is recommended, however, I think I prefer the look of some of the halls around the Lansdown campus...

    I've applied for media production too! I was recommended at the open day to dtay in the student village so I could take full advantage of the 24/7 facilities. They also said its better for experiencing uni life. But the media school was awesome and the teachers were really cool too

    I enquired at the open day and the pass is £240 for the year, its a decent enough price but I plan on spending most of my time using the facilities so it would make more sense in the student village

    On the open day I went to they said bus pass is included with your accommodation if you're staying in halls in Landsdown to use the uni buses and a few others?
