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 is growing evidence that these experiences are valued by employers and help you stand out in an increasingly global and competitive graduate jobs market. 

That is why at BU, we have refocused our resources over the last three years in order to increase the range of options on offer to students, which has seen our student mobility figures move from 0.8% in 2013/14 to 7.2% currently.

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.

Whether it is studying abroad, securing an overseas work placement, volunteering or simply learning a new language, there many choices of programmes/activities that you can access at BU.

Ultimately, all of these experiences will enhance your student experience whilst you are at BU but also give you valuable skills that will help you stand out when applying for a job or setting up your own enterprise once you graduate.

So, why not find out more and start your global future, today.
