Been here for four years, loved every minute of it. Met a wide range of people, gained lots of skills. Learned to be a lot more independant. Don’t be afraid to jump into some different society’s
Many employment days, and having an employment centre
There can be too much content to get through in two hour lectures It’s kept interesting
The uni is known for the big student union, there’s always something going on
It’s nice to be in a seaside town
There are hundred to chose from, something for everybody
There’s always support if you need it
University has been great, its offered me so many opportunities after uni and ive made many friends along the way. Its really helped me feel more confident in myself and the knowledge i have in my course area.
My course included a years work placement and had various links with large companies looking to hire students from BU for placements and for graduate roles after university. The careers department is great at helping with CVs, applications etc to get students ready for work afterwards. A lot of early assignments included working in groups and designing systems so teamwork skills, leadership skills etc had a chance to grow and these are very helpful for work after uni.
I like having the mixture of lectures and labs so it really helps me understand the topic. The lecturers were great at making the course interesting and linking it to real life applications. I liked the projects that were with outside companies because it gave me a chance to get a feel for what it is like after uni. The thing i liked least was the deadlines for the 3 units of final year being on the same day.
I think the students union is great, they always have activities and events going on, they give great support when needed. The student union building is one of my favourites its well designed and a great place to work, very inclusive as well.
The facilities are good theyve got lots of sports facilities and everytjing i needed for my course in the library as well as the computers and software that i needed.
Bournemouth is a really nice area with a great beach, good range of shops, a park to walk through. The nightlife is good too, there are a range of bars and clubs to go to that arent too pricey for students. Along with the student union bar in lansdowne.
They are good, very inclusive theres a society or club for everyone from sports type societies to gaming societies. Theres normally a fair in the student union building (subu) for the students to sign up to the clubs and societies which is a good chance to talk to the people in them and see if its the right choice
The support from lecturers and tutors is great, always there if students need to talk or get help for an assignment. For personal support the student union is the best they help with finance, personal issues, problems with housing or guidance through problems with housemates etc.
It is being a grest experience! Thanks to the many activities that the university organised I had the chance to meet many amazing people and I am very enjoing my life here (trips, travels, multicultural meals..it's super!). And the university is giving me what I need to boost my future career and become a good event manager!
Opportunity of placement and atudy abroad, various worckshops (global talent programme, steep workshops) and activities (volunteer, clubs and societies)
The thing that I like most is that there is the opportunity to put inti practice what we learn (we are organising an event!); the thing that I like least is that orking into teams I don't really have the opportunity to socialise with my other classmates.
It is amazing!! So many societies to join!
Very good, spacious rooms, accessible in every part anfd convenient bars and restaurants for or lunch or break,
Quite but at the same time active, the beach gives something more to the atmosphere
The ones that I have tried can be considered a good place where to havefun (laugh a lot!) and meet new friends
I never had the need to try it but they all seem very kind and ready to help. The supervisor of our course is the best!
It's going well. I enjoyed some of the lectures and work I'm just excited to start my dissertation next year. There are lots of things that Bournemouth University need to work on to improve but I don't thing they are willing to listen about the lecturers and standard of teaching that we are paying £9000 a year for. Instead they are wasting our money building massive tower blocks all over bourmouth
We have lots of information from the careers department, however the Information is mainly aimed at young students who do not have any responsibilities. As a mature student I haven't been able to apply to any of the jobs or placements that are available as I cannot leave my family.
I love the content of the course and there are some lectures that I love and very much enjoy the what we are being taught, however the doesn't seem to be much consistency across all the units and lectures with teaching abilities. Not every one can be a teacher but at Bournemouth it seems that lots of the people standing up there are masters of their field but have no real teaching skills
I think the student uni is very active there are always things going on that students can get involed with however I feel that again it's only aimed at young students I wouldn't feel comfortable attending things as I'm slightly older
Yes. Things can be improved in the scitech department it needs modifications to make it upto date. However Bournemouth University has its priorities on building new buildings all over Bournemouth instead of sorting out the facilities and teaching on the current courses
Bournemouth is lovely, I will never leave
Yes it's OK I have had to access support and I have found it very helpful
Very pleasing despite being challenging. Loads of activities and things to do in the town. Nightlife is very good and lectures are fun and intriguing. The uni support network is also very good and has helped me settle in perfectly.
Not great, currently looking for job. Not getting much help or know where to go
Fun; however very packed and hard to keep up on work
Very good. Love TOFS
Modern, spacious, well managed.
I’m at landsdowne and we neeed more. More sport stuff gym etc
Good. Lots of variety
Good. Excellent support network
I haven't a very positive experience at Bournemouth University. I will not be recommending it to anyone. I hope to continue my further education at another university.
Yearly careers fair
Bournemouth University are very disorganised in terms of informing their about timetables and submission dates. Being part of the February intake they have not taken into consideration our timetable and do not provide us with it until a few days before we are due to start. Our lecturers who teach us the theory at Uni often do not know what is going on with our assignments. On multiple occasions we have received contradicting information from several members of staff leaving us extremely confused about what we need to do. On several occasions we have also been provided with the wrong information, resulting in hours of wasted time doing things we didn't need to do because they emailed the wrong group.
We are in a separate building so completely secluded from the main campus. Hardly any input from the students union on our campus and we are not informed about events happening.
Health and social care building is small and there aren't enough social areas to accommodate the amount of students. We are completely secluded from the man campus and therefore it is difficult to get involved with the social events going on as they are all on the main campus
I joined a few societies and was very disappointed as they did not do any events.
Tutor feedback is usually very vague.
My university experience let me experience a lot of new things and taught me loads, not just from the academic point of view and has been an amazing life lesson
University offers getting help from career advisors to work on yout CV/interview skills and answer any questions. My course also offers a unit called 'career pathways' that's supposed to prepare us for the life after graduation.
I really like how practical the course is, meaning working in a live TV studio and being able to use university's kit for location filming.
Student's Union enables you to join some of many various societies at uni. It also offers help and advice to all students
Very good, as there's a great variety of them
Bournemouth got everything - beautiful beaches, cinemas, restaurants and busy nightlife
SUBU got almost a 100 amazing, different societies, all of them enabling students to make the most out of their time at uni
University offers support in all areas - academic, financial and health, meaning that as a student you don't have to worry about getting help from outside of uni
Studied in NYC, in final year and have my dream job ready for when I graduate and have made friends for life. The group work, range of freshers events, housing environments and family-like classrooms enable a tight-nit community wherein everyone genuinely cares about eachother and wants the best for you.
Plenty of guest speakers, lecturers etc. Compulsary work placement on course. Study abroad emphasised to gain global employability.
Least: A lot of the lecturers don't have English as their first language so the entirety of some units are self-taught as no one can understand then. Most: Variety of subjects studied and AACSB accreditation makes us stand out when working alongside other graduates.
Plenty of events at all times. Have been in many positions and a student, year, senior representative. Take matters seriously. Organise events around topical discussions (Brexit, veganism, careers weeks).
Very good. They enable us to use computer facilities 24/7. Super annoying the gym and library is not open 24/7 however. Room booking is a pain and can sometimes have many overlaps with the timetabling team.
Night life is fantastic. We have a beach which is great when the weather is nice. Homelessness crisis for the last few years which the council are tackling. Nice shops.
A huge range of different ones to get involved in. 2 recruitment events throughout the year. Lots of events whether you're joining an academic one or a sport based one.
Tutors take constructive feedback personally sometimes. Lots of personal councilling available and always someone available to talk to and attending events which deal with talking are encouraged.
I’ve had a great time studying at BU. I like how easy it is to talk to both students and teachers here and the experience is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
BU offers employment advice daily to all students and has a center available to all students with designated staff to assist with each profession
Loads to offer for every student.
Very modern and up to scratch.
I love the beach! But the nightlife is also great! Loads to offer!
Being VP and marketing officer for a society let me embrace my leadership skills alongside my course
There is someone to talk to, regardless of what it is you need to talk about. Very useful
My uni experience is good as I learn more than I ever thought I could, but the social life is load and stressful making it hard. I am an international student which makes it even worse to be dropped into such a chaotic environment.
My uni has weekly career workshops as well as the ability to go abroad eg Canada for a semester as well as offers placement the third year.
I like the broadness of the course; however, with each different teacher (e.g. EMSA) the teachers change terms from one another making it hard to understand.
I do not get involved as my work load is very big.
My halls, Home Park, were not the best. It was a good location with nice staff; however, my flatmates were messy and loud, and the smoking area would wake people up at all hours of the night with no regard for others.
My uni facilities are rather good, with the library being at the top of my list offering books on two campuses.
The city like is buzzing, but as soon as students leave, it calms down.
There is an abundance of options.
Academic support is little as they never truly help, and when contacting personal tutors, the difficulty increases.
