MSc Management with Human Resources; Former Students’ Union President

Studying at BU was one of the best decisions I ever made. The course and facilities were brilliant; the lecturers were knowledgeable and supportive. I was also voted President of the Student Union and that has really developed my skills in many ways.

MSc International Accounting & Finance

I chose Bournemouth University for the AACSB accreditation and ranking in comparison to other universities, as well as the beach and warm weather. BU is very diverse and settling in was exciting for me. Acculturating into the unions was helpful too.
