Situated on the south coast of England and less than two hours from London by train, Bournemouth University was a finalist for two of the most coveted prizes in UK higher education in recent years – the 2009 Times Higher Education Awards for "University of the Year" and "Research Project of the Year".

Bournemouth University currently has 18,000 students enrolled, including around 1,500 international students representing nearly 130 countries. The area is among the most beautiful in the country, enjoying great scenery and the UK’s warmest weather.

In 2013, Bournemouth University became the first UK university to receive ‘commended’ status for the quality of learning opportunities, while in 2012 they were awarded The Queen’s Anniversary Prize thanks to the contribution made to world-leading excellence and pioneering development in computer animation. Bournemouth alumni have since won multiple Oscars in this industry.

Bournemouth University has two campuses. Talbot Campus is situated in Poole, on the boundary with Bournemouth. It is where most of the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching takes place. Lansdowne Campus is spread around Bournemouth's town centre and is where most of the university’s halls of residence can be found, along with specialist teaching facilities.
