Getting students excited about higher education

Visiting Bournemouth University is a great way to get your students excited about higher education. We can create a tailored itinerary for your visit, featuring presentations, tours and workshops, to give your students a taste of university life.

We want you and your students to get as much as possible out of visiting us, so we’ll work closely with you to create a day that meets all your needs and gives your students a good overview of studying at this level. While visits can be tailored to meet your needs, they typically include opportunities to hear from our student ambassadors, participate in a campus tour, learn about university finance and take part in academic taster sessions.

We understand the time pressures you’re under and will do what we can to make arranging a Subject Insight Day, such as by providing risk assessments and plans well in advance.

Our Subject Insight Days cover:

  • Experiencing higher education through hands-on academic workshops facilitated by lecturers and current students
  • Discovering what a university campus is like with an interactive campus tour, including access to our specialist facilities
  • Developing an understanding and confidence through activities and workshops about the UCAS application process, funding and budgeting, and adjusting to university life.

We will be running a suite of subject insight days across the spring and summer terms. To book onto the following subjects areas please email
