I love the city. There is plenty of places to drink, party or just eat out. Good value for money and a great place to live

Public Transport

Getting around Bournemouth is best on a bike (there are no horrific hills to worry about) or by bus. Travelling outside of Bournemouth is easy thanks to it being well-connected by public transport. There are direct trains to major cities such as London, Birmingham and Oxford. There’s also the National Express Coaches that travel to destinations all over the UK and offer great prices on tickets if you book early.

Eating Out

Shopping

There is plenty of shopping in Bournemouth, on Commercial Road and Old Christchurch Road you will find all the high street favourite chain stores. For even more shops head to the nearest big retail spot called Castlepoint Shopping Centre just outside town. To go off the beaten track and find a great selection of small independent shops, explore Albert Road, Yelverton Road and Burlington Arcade.

The Great Outdoors

Bournemouth is most famous for its golden sandy beaches and during the summer months, thousands of holidaymakers flock there for a day beside the seaside. As well as walks along the beach or the day spent sunning yourself, there are a bunch of activities to try. There’s surfing (they have an artificial surf reef!), paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and you can even zip line from the pier. It’s safe to say, the beach will be one of your favourite spots whilst studying in Bournemouth.
 

 

Image Credit

The New Forest

In less than 20-minutes, you can be in the New Forest National Park. Known for wild ponies (who always have right of way) and fantastic walking trails that go through woods, by the sea, over heath and by rivers. There is also a great selection of small villages with traditional English pubs to try.

The Jurassic Coast

The Jurassic Coast is Dorset’s stunning and dramatic coastline famous for the hundreds of fossils that wash up every year. Make sure to take a day trip to Durdle Door in Lulworth Cove, a beautiful stone arch in the sea that’s the only UNESCO natural heritage site in the UK.

Bournemouth is TRAGIC for university life. I have enjoyed my time here but i wish I went up north for uni. It's so expensive to go for a night out and there's barely any selection and diversity of bars and clubs. The place is full of oh polly girls and bosh boys. I like a rave and there have been a couple good ones, but mainly there's DNB which I prefer garage. The town itself is so bad in terms of shops and cafes. The only good thing about living here is being by the beach. That is honestly the best thing about uni in bournemouth. There are a few restaurants but all are expensive. I think you would get the best student life somewhere more affordable and diverse, like Sheffield or Manchester. read more

There are more than enough places to go out for food with reasonable prices. There are a good range of clubs around for nights out most within walking distance. Bournemouth town has some nice shops but even more can be found by just taking a bus ride to castle point shopping centre. Public transport is perfect… train station very close by and lots of bus stops around. read more

Love Bournemouth,...

Love Bournemouth, the nights out are so good and there's something going on every day of the week. Everything is within walking distance if you're living in halls as town and the beach aren't far. It's the perfect mix of busy student nightlife with a beach if you wanted to be somewhere quieter. Bournemouth isn't massive but there are two unis which means there's definitely a studenty feel to the area and I know that a huge city would've been too overwhelming for me. We also have Bournemouth 7s and Summerball and the student union are really good. read more

This place is great for eating out but be warned, homeless are in abundance. You will get accosted for money at least once a night and the who place smells of janga. Its very clean and spacious but no visible police presence at all. Days all you can eat buffet is a good choice for evening meals and the 2 Wetherspoons in close proximity means cheap breakfast, lunch and alcohol. read more

I absolutely love Bournemouth and would love to just stay forever! It is not the cheapest flatwise, but the vibrant town and especially the beautiful surroundings are hard to beat. It is great culturally, offering everything from galleries, cinemas and theatres to pubs and nightclubs and has some superb eateries. Walking down one of the many chines to the gorgeous sandy beach lets you forget any stress that might have been on your mind. read more

I'm not really a night clubby person, but the town has a variety of clubs and bars that are quite popular. Eating out is great and usually a good price such a pizza, Italian, sushi, Indian etc.. The town itself is great for shopping, anything you need is there. There are buses and trains too. read more

There are so many restaurants to choose from in Bournemouth! Pubs aren't cheap but there's so many weatherspoons about so you can't go wrong. The nights out are Amazing in Bournemouth. They do so many deals for students to make your nights out cheap. Lost Gardens and Halo are great on Monday the new event Flava in revolutions on a Tuesday, varsity night at cameo on Wednesdays, Bonsai on Thursdays and then Lollipop or Cameo on Fridays so there's plenty of events on! There are some decent shops in Bournemouth town centre including topshop, zara, riverisland, miss selfridge, new look, primark, topman etc. The public transport is amazing running very frequently. read more
