A semester abroad at Breda University

20h ago
As I boarded my flight to the Netherlands with my best friend whom I convinced to join this adventure with me, I couldn’t help but reflect on how we would be moving to a different country, where I would experience adventure, travel, and learn new things in addition to being a part of its culture. I knew this was an opportunity I wanted to take advantage of as soon as I heard about the Turing Scheme back in Bournemouth, but I had yet to learn what was in store for us. I lived in an exchange student accommodation which was an incredible opportunity especially as I got to live with 2 other studen ..read more

Hear from students on the MA Social Work course at BU about their experiences of university life. Tolu Shodolamu I am a 1st year MA Social work Student at BU. I came to the University last September and it has been an amazing time for me. Obviously it has not been easy to juggle school work with placement and also with the learning and unlearning processes l am going through as a foreigner. But it has been worthwhile because the lecturers and my course mates have been wonderful in their supportive roles. The lecturers ensure that all support l need especially for academics is available. I have ..read more

My name is Zoe Chinnock, I am originally from the Cotswolds in the UK and I am studying BA (Hons) Events Management at Bournemouth University. Going to university has always been a goal of mine and when I attended the Open Day at Bournemouth, the versatility, and the opportunities that the course offered me seemed like the perfect next step for my journey. I wanted to take every opportunity given to me, therefore when the chance to study abroad came, I took it, and France was the perfect option as I had not explored France and French was a language I learned at GCSEs. I was also keen to m ..read more

My time as a student midwife at Bournemouth University
Bournemouth University Student Blog
by Guest blogger
1w ago
Moving three hours away from home to live in a new town, barely 18, and to start studying Midwifery was very daunting, to say the least. However, if I had the opportunity to tell myself how incredible my time at University has been, all my worries would have been diminished. Starting university is a universally intimidating experience. There’s a lot of uncertainty about what to expect and whether it’ll be for you. However, the second that I started Midwifery, I knew that it was what I was meant to be doing. I vividly remember my first lecture, all about anatomy and physiology, and how rea ..read more

Volunteering in Uganda through the Turing Scheme funding at BU

2w ago
My name is Macy Patten, I am 21 and heading into my third year at Bournemouth University where I study BA (Hons) History. The social, cultural, and people-focused modules really interested me, and learning to understand people and society more deeply was something I knew would benefit me personally and professionally in some capacity. Additionally, Bournemouth places a lot of importance on placements, volunteering, and new experiences, which I found inspiring. When I found out about Play Action International at Fresher’s Fair, a summer volunteering in Uganda with them was an easy yes for me. T ..read more

My experience of the Senior Leadership Apprenticeship at BU
Bournemouth University Student Blog
by Guest blogger
2w ago
This is a guest blog by Kerry Jalie, Strategic Portfolio Manager for the NHS, and a student studying the Senior Leadership Apprenticeship (SLA) at BU. I started the SLA in September 2022, and I can honestly say I am really enjoying it! The content is interesting and varied and the combination of on-campus and remote Microsoft Teams online lectures works very well for me. Understanding the theory behind some of the leadership traits that I already (unconsciously) exhibit daily has been fascinating and has strengthened my self-confidence, as well as opened up new areas for me to explore and dev ..read more

My experience of living in Halls as a Nursing student
Bournemouth University Student Blog

3w ago
My name is Tibaaga Stacey. I am a second-year student nurse. I once lived in the Cranbourne House Halls, which had a mix of healthcare students and other students completing different courses. My flat consisted of seven ensuite rooms with a shared kitchen. The contracts ranged from 40 weeks to 41 weeks, 42 weeks to 50 weeks. I remember choosing a 50-week contract that gave me time to finish all my university assignments and find another place to go without feeling stressed. Living in university accommodation can be good when you move in, as bills can be paid in four instalments based on the se ..read more

My nursing placement in Ghana through the Turing Scheme
Bournemouth University Student Blog
by Guest blogger
3w ago
My name is Emily, I am currently a second-year BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing student. I chose to study here because they offered the course I was interested in and the location was close to home, essential due to being a mum. When I heard that BU were offering an overseas placement in year 2, I knew this was my destiny, following a lifelong dream that started when I was 5 years old – to go to Africa and help people less fortunate than myself. So, the opportunity to go as a student nurse 35 years later seemed like it was meant to be. I had no previous experience of travelling or working abroad so th ..read more

How studying Ecology and Wildlife Conservation at BU took me to work at North Bali Conservation
Bournemouth University Student Blog
by Guest blogger
1M ago
I chose to study BSc (Hons) Ecology & Wildlife and Conservation at Bournemouth University as I found the course to be an excellent broad overview of many topics surrounding environmentalism and conservation. It offers knowledge in a range of fields that will allow you to narrow your focus of study on a niche area that you find more specific to your individual values. Through this degree I focused my research more on marine conservation. I always wanted to work abroad to gain further experience working with different cultures to explore all the avenues of the industry available to me. Worki ..read more
