Support for students

We know it’s a tough time to plan your finances and make decisions involving money. That’s why BU and our Students’ Union provide a range of support during our students’ time with us:

  • We are committed to supporting our students with the cost of living
  • We offer a range of bursaries and undergraduate student scholarships
  • Throughout your time at BU, you will have access to a variety of free financial support, resources and services
  • When you join BU, you will automatically become part of the Students’ Union, SUBU. This includes access to SUBU Advice, offering free, impartial and confidential advice to all students
  • We also offer specific funding* such as the BU Laptop Support Fund and Placement Opportunity Fund
  • It’s easy to travel between our campuses and around Bournemouth. The most cost-effective and sustainable ways include walking, cycling and the BU bus service.
