Located on the south coast of England, Bournemouth University is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty less than two hours from central London by train. We are a green, safe and friendly town welcoming students from many countries.

Famous for its seven-mile stretch of award-winning sandy beaches, the town is also a thriving hub for a number of industries including the creative, financial and tourism sectors. The New Forest National Park is on our doorstep and the Jurassic Coast (which is a World Heritage site) is just a short drive away.

Lise Heritier

BSc (Hons) Midwifery

When I first visited Bournemouth, I fell in love with the town and its landscape. It has beautiful parks with friendly squirrels, sandy beaches with seagulls flying overhead, and a climate that can be quite pleasant more often than you would expect.
