Our global community

About Global BU

At BU, we collaborate with global institutions and organisations through our education, research and practice.

We offer our students and staff a range of opportunities, both on-campus, and internationally, to ensure a global outlook in all that we do.

Our vision is that by 2025 BU will be recognised worldwide as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice.

Our international activities are coordinated by the Global Engagement Team (GET), which brings together representatives from Faculties, and Professional Services teams covering International Student Recruitment, International Partnerships, Student and Staff Mobility, and Alumni.

If you are interested in joining us as a student or member of staff, or whether you are already working or studying with us, please get in touch to find out about the international services and support we provide at BU.
