    Hi there!
    Hopefully I can help answer some of your queries. Were you looking to know more about the course or the uni itself? With regards to the uni, your course would be based at the Talbot campus and this is accessible via our UniBUs service that takes students from the town centre (where the majority of the uni accommodation is based, conveniently close to all of the shops and within walking distance of the beach) to the campus. What is also useful is that a bus pass is included in your rent in your first year accommodation. As a student myself, I also think it's great that there are loads of extra curricular activities that you can be a part of such as the long list of societies that we have and also volunteering.

    With regards to the night life, there are many clubs situated in the town centre, that are popular among the students here but there are also plenty of other activities that the Res Life hold if clubbing isn't your thing. Perhaps have a look on BU Res Life's Facebook page for more info.

    I don't know if you have already done this or not, but I would strongly recommend attending an open day here because it will give you an opportunity to visit the uni, talk to current students and explore the area. Here is the link to book a place:

    Please feel free to ask me any other questions!

    Hey Freya!
    I am a student ambassador at BU and I study Media and Communication at the moment - it's a great course that you have chosen! From my personal experience, I think Bournemouth University was one of the last to respond to my application so I wouldn't worry! I would keep checking your UCAS track and if you are still concerned, you can email [email protected] and they may be able to give you more info!

    Hey Miljee,

    Congratulations on receiving an offer!

    Could you please elaborate- you've said you received your offer but then that you won't receive it til Easter... is that correct?

    Hey Rebekah!
    Congratulations on getting a place at BU!
    That's great that you're coming to the applicant day and no, you can easily walk to the other halls in Landsdowne from Dorchester House so don't worry! Dorchester is great because it's close to Asda and the train station as well.

    Course:MA Creative Media Arts: Data and Innovation

    Undergraduate/Postgraduate: Postgraduate MA

    Offer made: Accepted (with scholarship)

    Are you coming to an open day? I'm not sure. I'm an international student and won't be moving to the UK until school starts.

    Favorite hobby? Doing ANYTHING outside, visiting museums and art galleries, reading, painting, and catching up on my favorite shows: Dear White People (Netflix), Blackish, Grownish, Big Mouth, Power, Insecure, Chewing Gum, Claws....

    Any questions? Has anyone else on here been accepted into BU for the media program?

    Hey!
    That's great that you have chosen BU! If you're not able to come to an open day, don't worry! BU has their own virtual tour on their website - here is the link for it: https://www1.bournemouth.ac.uk/sites...th/virtual-bu/
    Your hobbies sound great and I'm sure there will be plenty of outdoor things that you can do in Bournemouth! Be sure to check back on this thread to see if anyone else posts later on that is doing the same course as you.
