Discover the world

Student mobility opportunities

We want you to experience new cultures, learn about different ways of working and explore incredible places as part of your journey with BU.

There are a host of opportunities to get involved in our global community, whether you’re a BU student who wants to discover the world, or an incoming exchange student who is keen to experience life in Bournemouth.

We offer a number of study abroad programmes, and can help you to find placements overseas when it’s appropriate. This not only gives you the chance to experience a new culture, but also develop employability skills and enhance your career prospects through a range of networks and contacts around the globe.

You can also get involved with volunteering projects overseas, or simply learn a new language - or improve an existing one - with the assistance of our dedicated BU Language Centre.
