A thriving town on the beautiful south coast of England, Bournemouth is home to nearly 190,000 people. It’s easy to find your way around and is less than two hours from London with direct trains to Waterloo, good transport connections and an airport. Bournemouth University is at the heart of the largest non-industrial conurbation in Europe. It is in a wonderful location sandwiched between the UK’s newest national park, best beaches and largest natural harbour. It is home to a major financial services sector (JP Morgan Chase, Nationwide Building Society and Liverpool Victoria among others) as well as having the largest concentration of language schools outside London and many national headquarters including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Sunseeker International.
Bournemouth is world renowned as an international conference centre and plays host to major academic, professional and, of course, political conferences. It also offers one of the largest exhibition and entertainment venues on the south coast. The university is a powerful player in the economic and cultural life of South West England. We are at the hub of a network of educational, business and local government partners and also played our part in the region’s preparations for the 2012 Olympics.
