Are you wondering where to study your Master’s degree? Here are a few of the reasons why I’m glad I chose Bournemouth University for mine…

Fees, Funding and Expenses

Bournemouth University offers a wide range of scholarships that can be seen as a lifesaver for lots of students, especially, to those from developing countries. Also, the accommodation and living expenses in Bournemouth seem to be lower than some other parts of the UK.

Reputation

Bournemouth University is ranked as one of the 200 most international universities in the world. There are more than 2000 students from around 125 countries which creates a lively and diverse student experience. In the 2014 REF, 96% of BU’s research was evaluated as internationally recognized and it also placed 4th in the south west for world-leading impact.

Location

Bournemouth is a thriving town on the wonderful south coast of England with good transport connections to the rest of UK.  It is surrounded by splendid nature and other wonderful nearby places you can visit. For example, it takes around two hours travelling by bus to get from Bournemouth to London. Additionally, there is also the fossil-rich Jurassic Coast, New Forest National Park, and the widely known archaeological wonder of Stonehenge.

The points I have indicated above are just a tiny part of why I’m glad I chose BU. There are still a plenty of treasures waiting to be uncovered. Are you ready to explore this mysterious land? Then make sure you grab the chance to be the next BU-er!
