My name is Will, I'm a BA Media Production Student at Bournemouth University currently on my placement year.
It's great to hear that you are looking at BU as a possibility. While we are a small university, we sure do pack a punch.
Similar to Ilya from DMU, I haven't started on a masters course but it is something I am seriously considering after I graduate.
So instead, i'll share why I love BU so much!
Coming from a small, quiet village in the back and beyond of Norfolk, going to a busy city like London and Manchester felt like too much of a step-up, and being near the coast my whole life, I knew I had to be by the coast for university.
I also had a look into what Universities were the best for my course (Media Production) and Bournemouth had ranked high consistently. And after an open day/campus visit, I was sold!
So what does Bournemouth University have to offer?
While BU itself is a particularly small campus, our estates and leadership teams are continuously investing in industry-leading facilities like our recently opened Poole Gateway Building (new home to Faculty of Media & Communications) & Bournemouth Gateway Building (new home to Faculty of Health & Social Sciences), as well as that, they are always refurbishing existing buildings to save costs and be more environmentally conscious. Our Student's Union (SUBU) is also an incredible organisation that is there to support students with anything they need, they also put on some killer events like our Fresher's Fair and the BU Summer Ball, a mini festival exclusively for BU and AUB (Arts University Bournemouth, our neighbouring university) students.
In terms of Postgraduate study, we have a host of incredible degree's led by our amazing lecturers and staff which you can see here:
Is there an area of study you are particularly interested in?
