    Hi
    Bournemouth is the nearest University to home, so I feel like it is worthwhile investigating. Firstly, what is the University like in general?

    Secondly, what are History and Business like? I'm not so keen the history degree at Bournemouth, as it seems to be focused around media history, which i'm not really that interested in. I'm also concerned by the low entry requirements. I haven't looked much at Business, but there seems to be around 5 different Business degrees, which I find a bit confusing.

    Hi Tortent,

    My name is Steve and I'm a Student Ambassador for BU here on The Student Room.

    I have just finished my degree in Business Studies at BU and have really enjoyed my four years studying it! I can understand the confusion over the different degrees. I think what you may have seen is the potential pathways that are available. Essentially what you do is start out by studying the same units in the first year as the whole course, then specialise in what you want to do. Before the final year you can chose to graduate with a 'named degree', meaning that you'd end up with a degree in Business Studies 'with Human Resources' or Business Studies 'with Marketing' for example.

    In general, the University has a great reputation, particularly with its industry links. That is growing all the time with the amount of investment that is taking place. I think a good example of that is the fact that two new state of the art buildings have been built in as many years, meaning that there are more places to learn, work and socialise.

    We've got an open day coming up on Saturday 2nd July. It'd be great if you were to come along since there will be representatives from both courses to give you an insight into what they are like to study. If you're interested and available, there's more information here.

    Is there any particular part of Business that you're interested in?

    Note that the Bournemouth history course is new so there can only be limited evaluation of its standard. You have correctly recognised that its content is very limited compared to most other history courses. If you like the focus on media and British history then you might want to consider it. Otoh if you believe that you will exceed the limited entry requirements significantly, there are far better history courses out there.
