If you are a student currently studying at a sixth form or college, you can apply to join us on our summer residential programme. Our newly developed residential will allow you to explore a subject area of interest to you, while experiencing what university life is like first hand, all completely free of charge.

Get a taste of the university experience during a two-night stay at Bournemouth University and become an honorary student during this three day residential. You will be able to choose to discover one of the five subject areas below in-depth, to help prepare you for the transition into studying at university level.

Subject area of focus:

  • Design & Engineering
  • Business & Management
  • Sports Science and Rehabilitation
  • Creative Technology
  • Life & Environmental Science.

During your stay you will:

  • Have hands-on support from academics in the chosen subject area of study, with a tour of the relevant facilities to enhance your experience
  • Familiarise yourself with life on a university campus by staying in student halls and getting to know our current students
  • Attend wellbeing and learning support workshops, provided by BU support staff, which is designed to offer a proper insight into life as a student.

But life at university isn't just about studying - there's so much more to discover. Throughout your stay you will be able to take part in the full experience including clubs and societies, sport and mindfulness activities and our famous beach BBQ.
