Throughout the afternoon you will get to

Meeting with Academics
We understand you may be interested in speaking to us about different courses - we will do our best on the day to ensure you speak with staff from all these courses, however we ask that you select your main course of interest so we can contact you if a member of staff is unavailable for any reason.
We encourage our visitors to explore public transport where possible, with excellent coach and train links into Bournemouth Travel Interchange.
There is limited parking on our Talbot Campus and local pay and display facilities on our Lansdowne Campus. Blue badge parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. We’ll send you further details in the week before the Open Afternoon.
If you may require assistance on the day, please contact our AskBU team before the event, who can provide further information and advice.
