Bournemouth has the best of both, city life and the countryside. The beaches are compared to those in Miami - so cool. The people are friendly and there are events for everyone throughout the year. The air show is coming up which is the highlight.

Bournemouth is good for entertainment as the high street has a large area filled with all of the usual high street shops plus a large area filled with restaurants. The nightlife has a mix for all types of people plus it is in the perfect location on the beach!

With 7 miles of golden sand, and a city centre, you really do have the best of both worlds. From zip lining to mini golf, the oceanarium to shopping 'til you drop or fancy bars to insane club nights out, Bournemouth is the best student centre.

Bournemouth is hands down one of the best university’s for location! The first obvious thing about the location is the beach - rated in the TOP 5 beaches in Europe! There’s nothing better than grabbing an ice cream on a hot day or sitting outside Aruba overlooking the beach with a cocktail in your hand. Bournemouth also have really cute gardens as well as a fantastic shopping area in town as well as at Castlepoint. The nightlife is great with plenty of different options for everyone. Cameo is a firm favourite with student nights on a Wednesday as well as Halo Monday. The old fire station is the student union club and is the first home of Foreverland which is a spectacular event now all over the UK!! All in all bournemouth is an amazing area with plenty of things to do overall the value for money is definitely worthwhile and is actually cheaper than other university areas.

Poole is known for their Poole harbour and they have sandy beaches. The nightlife is good in Poole and they have clubs such as cameo in Bournemouth which are only a 10 mins car journey. They have a splashdown water park which also has restaurants such as Nando’s. Has a Poole stadium greyhound racing which I enjoy for the atmosphere and the betting. The wildlife is good value for money as their is a lot of wildlife and parks in Poole. Sandbanks beach is value for money as it’s free and the fish and chips on the beach are tasty. Durdle door is on pooles doorstep and is value for money if you are into trekking.

A number of shops are empty, creating an impression that the town is on its way down. But brilliant location next to the sea and warm. Plenty to do in the evenings and lots of places to eat. A great place to go.

It's gorgeous here. Perfect for outdoor people, with the beach right on our doorstep. Shopping and eating out options, there's pretty much all you could want. Transport is absolutely handy and very reliable on busses and taxis if needed. No need for a car at all. I love it here, and really did settle in quick.

Poole is the largest town for both AUB and Bournemouth University students with freshers living by the beach in Bournemouth and Student mainly in Winton, Charminster and Wallisdown areas. There is plenty of nightlife and shopping locations for any budget, with Lidl and cheap student nights out in abundance. The beach is one of the greatest benefits in the summer, stretchin 7 miles from Christchurch to Sandbanks and attracting thousands of tourists. Poole harbour is also a little gem not many people make use of but overall Poole/Bournemouth has everything a student would require! Also there are multimillion pound developments on over 20 sites in the process so in the coming years expect it to get even better!

Bournemouth wasn't on the list so I checked Poole. Great location, amazing being by the beach. Not much on offer in terms of nightlife unfortunately. Unless you like bassline or chart music.

Nights out are good for most people, 7-8 different clubs, each with different genres and themes, most have a weekly theme day so it’s extra entertainment, lots of supermarkets about, lots of things to do, but it is quite expensive relatively.

Poole Harbour and surrounding area are some of the nicest areas in the UK. The beaches in the area os Sandbanks are clean and safe for children. To see the beauty of the harbour you must take one of the many boat trips that take you around the islands within the harbour.
