Famous for its seven-mile stretch of award-winning sandy beaches, Bournemouth is quite simply one of the most stunning coastal towns in the country.聽

With a population just shy of 200,000聽and a thriving hub for a number of industries including the creative, financial and tourism sectors, Bournemouth offers聽the hustle and bustle of a vibrant聽town combined with a life by the sea.

But it鈥檚 not just about the amazing beaches (although we have to admit they are pretty special); the 聽is on our doorstep and the (which is England's only UNESCO natural聽World Heritage site) is just a short drive away. Plus,聽we are less than two hours from London (with direct trains to Waterloo) and聽we鈥檝e got an international airport.

It鈥檚 not hard to see why many of our students settle in Bournemouth after graduating, often launching enterprises of their own.
