The Bournemouth and Poole area has become renowned for being a hub of digital activity. We boast the third-highest density of digital tech businesses in the UK, with a digital economy that’s seen exponential growth in recent years.

BU’s students and graduates have played a major role in this – and through their work in areas such as digital effects, animation, computing, and design and engineering, we’ve built a strong worldwide reputation, too.

But it’s not just the quality graduates that enter employment after BU that set us apart. Through state-of-the-art facilities and leading expertise, we also have the means and in-depth knowledge to collaborate on projects with businesses and organisations.

By including creative and digital, as well as advanced manufacturing, as core themes in our knowledge exchange strategy, we aim to continue to stimulate economic growth in these key areas for our regional economy.
