BU Summer Breaks

Get a taste of uni life this summer!

Get a taste of the university experience for free with four days and three nights at BU. You’ll become an honorary BU student for the week, sampling the wide range of subjects available, from Applied Sciences to Health & Social Care, to Media & Communication – or maybe you’d be more interested in Design, Engineering & Computing, Tourism, or Business?

But university isn’t just about studying – there’s so much more to discover. You’ll also enjoy a beach barbeque, a social evening in the Students’ Union and even some sports activities. You’ll be living in real student accommodation so you get the full experience!
