BU welcomes students from all around the world and, as such, we have international representatives based in many countries all over the globe. We also run events in different countries around the world, giving you the opportunity to find out more about BU and what studying in the UK entails. You're also welcome to contact our team in the UK if you have any questions.
We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to work out what your qualifications equate to in the UK education system. Our country-specific information should help you decide which level of study is most appropriate for you. Find your country page on the right hand side of this page, and then visit the entry requirements tab to view the specific qualifications for your country.
If you can't see your country listed here, please check our international representatives page to find out where your nearest BU contact is located. If you have any queries about your qualifications, please contact our International Admissions Team.

If you are already based here, we often hold events outside of Bournemouth for international students already in the UK.
Funding eligibility for EU Undergraduate students
EU students applying for university places in the 2020/21 academic year will continue to be eligible for student fee loans and may be eligible for the government Maintenance Loan* - this will be for the duration of their course. Further information about undergraduate funding can be found on the gov.uk. website.
*EU nationals must have been resident in the UK for at least five years or be EEA migrant workers in order to apply for the government Maintenance Loan.
Information for EU Postgraduate students
Prospective EU students from the EEA-EFTA or Switzerland applying for January 2021 postgraduate programmes will be eligible to pay home fees. EU students studying a Master's degree in January 2021 may be eligible for some funding. The UK government is providing up to £11,222 in postgraduate loans for January 2021 entry.
Prospective EU students from the EEA-EFTA or Switzerland applying for September 2021 will pay the same fees as an international student. Bournemouth University sets its own fees for international students. Students from the EU (not Republic of Ireland), EEA-EFTA or Switzerland who start their course after August 2021 will no longer be eligible for student loans. However, there are other forms of financial support available they can apply for. Visit our scholarships and funding information pages to find out more.
