Review Title: The place where old people go to die...
One thing I remember somebody first saying to me with regards to Bournemouth was that it was where old people went to die. Now if I am honest there is no way I have ever seen an abundance of old people in Bournemouth. Ever. But the one main drawing point for Bournemouth itself, lets me honest, is the beach. Unfortunately us students aren't there for much of the summer, but we get glimpses and its definitely worth it.
Some people want to big city experience, and yes while Bournemouth is only a town, it still has a lot to offer. It still has a good shopping experience, but if you get desperate, there is Poole and Southampton only a short train ride away, and there are still great nights out to be had.
Bournemouth's new tag of "No. 1 New University" seems to have brought a lot of interest to the uni, and in my opinion it lives up to its name. The great thing about Bournemouth Uni is that it is an old Polytechnic, and because of that the uni provides invaluable life skills, and looks at providing you the skills needed to go into industry alongside the knowledge allowing you to implement what they teach.
Just remember when going to uni, to do it for you and no one else. Don't go and do a certain type of course because you friends are doing something similar and because you don't want to stand out for doing something different. Just do something you enjoy and even if you do decide half way through that perhaps you would like to try something else, it doesn't matter, because the world is your oyster and you can do whatever you want with it!
