Why you belong at BU

Returning to full-time education can be one of the best decisions of your life and can open up a range of exciting opportunities.

Why BU?

At BU, we want to help shape your future, wherever it may take you. There are plenty of reasons to study at BU, but here are a few that we think stand out:

  • Industry links and accredited courses
  • All undergraduate courses offer a professional work placement
  • Excellent graduate employment rates
  • Scholarships recognising academic, sporting and musical excellence
  • We're one of the top five universities in the UK for boosting graduate salaries, according to rankings published by The Economist in August 2017
  • First UK university to be 'commended'  for the quality of student learning opportunities.*

We're also in a fantastic location, right next to an award-winning beach.

BU is an institution on the up, following an 18 place rise in the Guardian University Guide 2018, where we were shown to be fourth in the UK for the value that we add to our degrees. This follows similar accolades for the university this year, such as the THE Young University Rankings, where we rank among the top 200 universities in the world.
