Our next Open Day is on 17 November

Book now

There really is no better way to explore everything BU and Bournemouth have to offer than by coming to see it all for yourself. At an Open Day, you’ll be able to:

  • Speak to staff and students
  • Find out about our courses 
  • See our fantastic on-campus facilities.

And why not make a day of it? Bournemouth and the local area has lots to offer.

Mini Open Days

Our Mini Open Days are a great alternative if you can’t make a full event. You’ll see our facilities on a guided tour by one of our Student Ambassadors and find out more about your course and student life at BU from our current students and staff:

This gives you access to a journey planner for the day, an interactive open day planner, course talk information, campus maps, student vlogs, a guide to Bournemouth, local business discounts and a social media wall.
