Throughout its history, BU has developed a strong reputation for offering a wide range of opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate education, research and enterprise.
BU has one of the highest graduate employability rates in the UK, and delivers a portfolio of courses that is geared towards the professions. This is coupled with a rapidly-growing research profile that saw the university ranked as the fourth most improved UK university in terms of research quality.
This research takes place across 15 research centres, but cross-cutting collaborative research is encouraged and indeed a feature of BU’s research progress. The research centres are focused on specific areas of interest and are already gaining national and international recognition.
In addition, BU is home to over 18,500 students from 160 countries and offers Honours and Masters degrees, as well as Foundation degrees (in conjunction with Partners across the south). Students benefit from industry-standard facilities in modern surroundings, and learning informed by academic staff involved with enterprise and consultancy as well as cutting-edge research.
