We’ve got lots of great accommodation options so you’ll soon find yourself settling in. Add to that a range of scholarships and bursaries designed to help you financially, you’ll see that BU is a good choice.
It was fine. The academics were the best part, and the archaeology department is excellent, all the staff are really friendly and they all know you by name cause the course is so small. The uni itself is not the best but definitely not the worst I've seen, and SUBU is pretty good. Accommodation is quite bad, but the quality of the housing is fine, there's just not enough of it. Student houses are usually awful, but there are some good ones around.
My overall uni experience has been pretty fine with Bournemouth.
