Our vision is to be recognised worldwide as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice.

Bournemouth University has more than 19,000 students and we are ranked as one of the top 100 young universities in the world (THE Young University Rankings 2020), but our ambition doesn’t stop there.

I am immensely proud of the quality of the teaching at Bournemouth University, which was recognised in June 2017 when we achieved a silver award in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF). This award has now been extended, to 2021.
