<p>Bournemouth uni has a lot of modern facilities and pushes students to strive. There&rsquo;s always the odd lecturer that you don&rsquo;t like but you&rsquo;d get that anywhere. Plenty of library space, computers, books and resources online. It is generally run by really lovely staff who are helpful. Pub on campus alongside other places to eat or get food from for great prices. Overall the teaching is to a good standard and it&rsquo;s very diverse, all lecturers have different tactics and the uni is good at trying to accommodate for all.&nbsp;</p>

The doctors on campus is incredible. They offer things like counselling and send letters home to make sure you are attending the doctors if you have recently been through something that they know about. Can be long waiting lists but you get that everywhere!

Great social university with some new buildings and a great library to work in. My radio course has given me so much more confidence and a passion for interviewing! The student union is vibrant and offers so many opportunities to have fun and get involved in the community! Some buildings could do with updating. Career services are so helpful and readily available
