Bournemouth University International College
Bournemouth University International College offers preparation courses for students who are interested in progressing to Bournemouth University (BU), one of the Top 200 most international universities in the world (THE 2016). Since we opened in 2013, we have received students from more than 70 different countries, and our staff have many years’ experience of supporting students from all over the world.
Our undergraduate and post-graduate courses typically include an element of subject content, such as business, finance, law, computing, media, or tourism, as well as English language and academic skills modules. They have been designed in close collaboration with BU which means that they provide tailored preparation and reflect the experience of their degree programmes.
As we work in partnership with BU, when you pass your pathway programme with us and attain the required academic and language results, you have a guaranteed place at the University on the degree programme you have selected. While you are at the College you will have lots of opportunities to meet your future lecturers, find out more about your degree programme, visit the faculty where you will be studying, and meet current university students. You will also have a BU ID card which means you can use the library and study spaces, sports facilities and the Students’ Union, home to more than 100 clubs and societies.
We are based in the heart of BU’s Lansdowne campus, which has shops and restaurants nearby, and is a short walk from the town centre and beach. The College itself is in a new, purpose–built building with comfortable, bright classrooms, two IT suites, and plenty of spaces for independent or group study, which you can use in the evenings and at weekends.
We are co-located with our student residence which has nearly 400 en-suite rooms and is the highest building in Bournemouth, with stunning views from the student lounge. We also have an on-site restaurant which serves different international dishes each day, and we offer discounted catered packages.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bournemouth University International College!
