Find your home from home

This page has been written for you as a student from Nigeria. We hope to see you at Bournemouth University (BU) very soon! We currently have eighty students from Nigeria studying at BU.

We are always happy to welcome new Nigerian students onto our undergraduate, postgraduate, research and top-up courses.

We will help you with your application to study at BU, or you can speak to one of our representatives in Nigeria who can offer assistance with your application.

James Littlewood our Regional Manager for Africa will also be visiting Nigeria regularly throughout the year. For further information about his trips, please email

To hear from current Nigerian students studying at Bournemouth University you can join our dedicated Facebook Group. The Nigerian Students Society  is a student-run society that promotes and celebrates Nigerian culture as part of SUBU (the Students’ Union at Bournemouth University). The President of the society, Daniel Asaya, has recently been elected as the SUBU President for 2016/17 and will take up his post in summer 2016.

Oluseye Ayomide is a current MSc Public Health student who has recently shared her experience of being Nigerian in Bournemouth.  For more tips and advice on coming to study in the UK, subscribe to our student blog.
