We’re BUproud of our bloggers, so we asked them to tell us their greatest achievement this year. Beth Cordon Everyone says second year is the hardest, and I’d have to agree that there have been a lot of ups and downs throughout the year and it has been harder than first year. But I feel I… Read more »
Hello! I'm the editor of the student blog and I work in the marketing team at BU. Sometimes you might see my name next to a guest post.
When I first came to Bournemouth University, I wasn’t expecting to meet many fellow Lithuanians. To my surprise, I met 9 in the very first week! Later I realised that there are many more of us at the university and a whole Lithuanian community in Bournemouth, which really made me feel like home is not… Read more »
Bournemouth, of course, is one of the most well-known tourist destinations with pleasant climates throughout the year in the UK.

After living in Bournemouth for 10 months, I can confidently say that Bournemouth is a smaller, British version of Southern California (minus the amount of rain… if Bournemouth could donate a bit of that rain to drought-ridden California, that would be much appreciated). Perhaps it is from the sunny beaches with sparkling water and an abundance… Read more »
The first AFC Bournemouth Premier League season was extremely successful and I think one of the reasons for this success, at least in how the home games were managed, was the great job done by BU Ambassadors. This season we have significantly expanded the ambassador programme, recruiting eight new ambassadors. Our new student ambassadors have… Read more »
When it comes to politics and discussions regarding the EU I have always been quite reserved in my opinion, thinking that I am not knowledgeable enough to express it in a confident and convincing way. Well, there are topics that don’t require a degree in politics or EU law in order to make a statement… Read more »
I was really excited when I was notified of my approved funding from the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission. I’m not sure whether it was the chance to study at Bournemouth University, in its prestigious tourism department with distinguished academics such as Professor Buhalis or the joys of finally getting funding to attain a Master’s degree in… Read more »
