We have a large community of international students at BU – currently just over 2,000 students from around 100 different countries and regions. At the moment, we have 32 students from Italy studying with us.
We are always happy to welcome new Italian students onto our undergraduate, postgraduate, research and top-up courses. We are also pleased to offer two exchange programmes in Italy through our partner universities - Università Ca’Foscari, Venezia and Università Di Pisa.
We will help you with your application to study at BU, but if you’d like more general advice about the UK education system, visas, scholarships or the variety of courses on offer, you should contact the British Council in Italy
Funding eligibility for EU Undergraduate students

Funding eligibility for EU Postgraduate students
EU students studying a Master's degree in 2018/19 may be eligible for some funding. The UK government is providing up to £10,280 in postgraduate loans.

Each year's amount will be paid in three instalments of 33%, 33% and 34%. The instalments will be paid directly to you at the beginning of each term.

Thanks to the very strong links with the VFX industry we had very important professionals coming to BU as guest speakers, as well as career fairs where we could meet recruiters. This is actually how I got my job, before even completing my degree course. Elena Pagliei - BA (Hons) Global Media Practice
