The university has really good facilities. When I had my first group assignment we used techno booths where you can work as a team in front of a large smart board. There are also other possible resources and rooms that you can use. In my case I spent a lot of time in the Pool House and had the ability to use×

The academic experience in Bournemouth University is great. The staff at the university are renowned in their fields and are brilliant at teaching and making things interesting. The amount of teaching attended in a week is not a vast amount, probably somewhere in the region of 10 hours a week, but obviously this may change depending on course. Course content is very good, covering a wide range of topics in order to really teach you everything there is to know about your chosen subject and enable you to decide for yourself what you find most interesting, and perhaps what you wish to do as a career in the future. Work required to be done comes in the form of essays mainly, in class tests are quite common also, group work isn't as common but some lecturers like this form of assessments. Exams are carried out for all topics and are worth the highest amount of marks. Feedback could be better from tutors, it isn't non existent but at times it can be quite vague. In my experience, if what they give you as feedback first isn't enough then ask for more and you shall receive.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
