Why did I choose this university?
I chose Bournemouth University because it is one of best universities in teaching hospitality and it has a great reputation in this field. I was also attracted by the placement opportunity that my course offers as I believe the experience of working abroad will enhance my employability for the future.
My first week
My first week was very exciting and enriching as I went to lots of university events and activities. Fresher’s fair was one of the highlights – it was very new and fascinating to me. I spotted a big dancing show in front of the library and I joined the crowd in watching the performance. Then some students approached me and asked me to join their societies. However, I quickly ran off as I was not interested in doing pole dancing! I continued exploring the fair and I was excited to see what the university had to offer. It was a very versatile and interesting experience. At the end of the day, I got lots of discount vouchers and free pizza vouchers. By that time I had realized that my student life in Britain had “officially” started.
I also went to the international dinner ceremony and got welcomed by the university’s Dean and other university staff. I became friends with some of the people, who sat around me, and I feel very lucky that they remained my good friends throughout my university life.
My school also organized a trip to Windsor Castle for us – there I got to meet all of my course mates and make a few friends as well.
The only thing I regret is not being able to go to the big night party, which was organized by the Students' Union at Bournemouth University during the first week – I am sure it must have been very exciting!
My main campus is Talbot. It is the biggest campus of Bournemouth University and it is where you can live, study and relax. I like going to the student canteen, Students' Union shop, Dylan's bar and many other coffee shops around the campus. The prices there tend to be much cheaper than anywhere else in the city. I can spend a whole day just at Talbot campus.
Bournemouth town centre is always vivid and busy with lots of interesting street shows and friendly people. It is not big, but it is clustered with loads of restaurants and shops and I can find a variety of world cuisine here.
The Beach is one of the highlights – two minutes walking distance from Bournemouth town centre. It’s very beautiful and every year it attracts tourists from all over the world to come and spend their summer here.
My study space
I study at the main library of Talbot campus most often. It opens everyday from 8 AM until 12 PM. It is five stories high and with mixed quiet, discussion and group study areas. I like going to the language centre on the first floor – it's where I can learn many different languages.
There are many studying spaces that students can explore and utilise. I have recently discovered that the new Student’s Centre is an amazing place to study. Everything is modern with a nicely painted interior and beautiful decoration inside. Students all love the comfy couches there as well!
My social life
My social life is about meeting with my friends. In my free time, I like going out with them to have a drink and sometimes we cook together.
I was one of the members of the Chinese Students & Scholars Society and I made a lot of friends that way. I helped organize the society's Halloween Party and Chinese New Year Party, which was very fun!
I also made friends from getting involved in volunteering activities. Last year I helped raise a record-breaking 1.5 tonnes of food for a charity and I was named Best Volunteer at the event!
I live in Chesil House. It is located in Lansdowne and it is only a 6-minute walk away from the town centre. I have a standard en-suite room and I share a kitchen with 5 other girls in my flat. In my room, I have a very large desk, a single-sized bed, a decent-sized wardrobe, large chest drawers and a modern bathroom. I couldn’t think of any negative things about my accommodation because it is the safest and most comfortable place I have ever lived in and I loved making it my new home!

I had an amazing time at bournemouth University. Lectures are really good and the as one would expect from a postgraduate study level the lectures are delivered in a way that is very close to the real professional world with loads of case studies and real brands challenges/essays. The university has loads of international students specially at a postgraduate level. My class was mainly international students. in a ratio around 80/20. Bournemouth is a lovely town, not too big but not too small. the beach is amazing to enjoy in sunny days and the nighlife is pretty good filled with students and nice places to hang out. take the chance to get to know Dorset are, there are lovely places along the coast outside bournemouth. i can say that this course opened me doors that I would have never achieved without it. after 2 years of professional experience in Marketing I am now an online marketing manager for a big ecommerce company. show less
