If you’re joining us in January 2023, we have a great Orientation Day planned for you on Wednesday 25 January.

The event will take place on Talbot Campus between 9am and 6pm. Activities will include information about:

  • The support services available to support your time at BU
  • Practical aspects of life in Bournemouth (including how to open a bank account, register with a doctor and more)
  • Immigration compliance
  • British law and personal safety
  • The Students’ Union at BU (SUBU)

There will also be a series of workshops for you to choose from, covering topics about:

  • Careers support, part-time job opportunities and skills development at BU
  • Saving money and cooking on a budget
  • Accommodation tips and advice
  • Culture shock and British culture.

Refreshments will be provided mid-morning and at 5pm we hope you will join us for a traditional British afternoon tea, with sandwiches and cakes. In the past, this has been a fantastic event that gives you lots of opportunities to meet other new students and familiarise yourself with BU services - we look forward to seeing you there.
