International students already in the UK

We have a large community of international students at BU; just over 2,600 students from around 120 different countries. We welcome around 180 international students from around the world each year from our UK-based pathway partners and representatives.

If you are studying on an English language course, an academic foundation course or another preparatory programme in the UK, or if you are already taking a university degree here, we would be glad to consider you for entry to further studies at BU.
