Our students get plenty of support from our helpful, specialist staff. Everyone knows everyone here and on campus you’ll be able to mix with like-minded individuals all either teaching, studying, or researching health sciences.

With an active Students’ Union there’s loads you can do to make the most of your university experience. We know health and well-being is important, so you’ll also get free treatment in the training clinic. And best of all, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded individuals who all care about the same things you do.

Bournemouth Bay paddleboarders


We are lucky enough to live beside seven miles of golden sands, and Bournemouth’s unique micro-climate means we get plenty of sunshine hours too.

From our campus on Parkwood Road, the beach is only 10 minutes-walk away. Living in Bournemouth means not only do you have the benefit of the coastline, but there are great routes into London (approximately two hours by train) and the ability to explore wider Dorset and the historic Jurassic Coast.
