Description

All new international students are invited to attend a special International Commencement Ceremony on Thursday 26th September 2019 held at the Bournemouth International Centre, Purbeck Hall. Join Vice-Chancellor Professor John Vinney, a host of local dignitaries and special guests to mark the start of your BU experience.

This is the perfect opportunity to meet fellow international students and members of staff, enjoy some hospitality, and be part of a very a special occasion in the same venue where you will graduate at the end of your course.

We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker joining us this year:

Rob Mitchell

Since graduating from Bournemouth University with a degree in Leisure Marketing, Rob has spent the last 16 years building a career in the commercial world of professional football.

Rob has been the Commercial Director at AFC Bournemouth for 11 years and at the helm of commercial operations throughout the club’s meteoric rise from League Two to the Premier League. Prior to working at AFC Bournemouth, Rob spent time at Southampton Football Club and Northampton Town Football Club.

A key strategic partnership that Rob forged is between AFC Bournemouth and Bournemouth University. Now into its seventh season, the partnership provides opportunities for both organisations to work together on a range of student, community, sport and academic projects.

Alongside his role at AFC Bournemouth, Rob has been the President of Dorset Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and is passionate about community and charitable activities. He works closely with AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust to link businesses with football and educational programmes that benefit and improve the lives of young people. Rob’s charitable work has included leading a cycle team to raise over £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, and over £8,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, where Rob cycled from London to Amsterdam.
