International Commencement Ceremony

Welcoming International Students to Bournemouth University

The International Commencement Ceremony (ICC) is an annual event that emphasises the value we place on having an internationally diverse learning community at BU. Every September, the BU and Dorset community come together to give a very special welcome to our newest international students at the Bournemouth International Centre. The ICC has been attended by over 1200 people in the last two years, and we have welcome special guests such as Paul Franklin (Oscar winner and BU Alumnus), Lord Karan Bilimoria, and bestselling author, Sophie Kinsella.

For highlights of the ICC to date see the 2016 and 2017 videos.
