Sport Scholarship for International Students

Sport Scholarship for International Students

The Bournemouth University Sport Scholarship for International Students is available to high-level sporting athletes coming to study at either undergraduate or postgraduate level at BU. The scholarship is designed to provide you with the funding you need to develop your sporting abilities and take them to the next level.

The university was first established in the early 20th century as the predecessor of Bournemouth Municipal College. The college originally proposed courses to prepare students for University of London degrees (1942-1976). In the mid-1960s, there were 6,850-day and evening students. As early as 1965, in the House of Commons, the number of students at the college was emphasized, and the Secretary of State was asked to evaluate a university application. At the time the Government did not plan to make any new universities until the late 1970s.

Bernard MacManus was appointed Director in 1983 and presided over a significant expansion in curriculum and student numbers, against a backdrop of initial uncertainty over the Weymouth Campus. During this time the Talbot Campus was consolidated having been established in 1976. The neighbouring Student Village was also constructed. A second campus was established at Lansdowne. The period between 1983 and 1994 saw the Institute expand into new disciplines including heritage, tourism, tax, public relations, computer animation and information systems. Two foundation stones remain within university buildings. The foundation stone for the College of Technology (1970s) resides in the main lobby of Poole House, Talbot Campus. The foundation stone for the Dorset Institute is mounted in Dorset House near what is now called The Edge. Bernard MacManus was honoured by Bournemouth University with an honorary doctorate in 2007.

Bournemouth University emerged for the first time in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings in 2015/16: ranked joint 401–500 in the world and 57th among UK universities. The university encountered a quick upward movement in national rankings: in 2016, it rose from 65th to 54th in The Complete University Guide, from 71st to 63rd place in The Guardian University League Table, and from 88th to combined 82nd in the Sunday Times Good University Guide. The high salary gains granted to Bournemouth University Vice-Chancellor John Vinney were explained as a review of this improvement.

The Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) is founded on the Talbot Campus at the Student Centre, which was extended in 2015. Its buildings are open to students at Lansdowne Campus and the partner colleges.

SUBU has over 120 clubs and societies for students to take part in alongside their studies at Bournemouth University. SUBU itself is comprised of different departments, such as SUBU Advice, Democracy, Equality, Representation, Volunteering, Insight, Policy, and Activities.

SUBU uses numerous venues including the nightclub The Old Fire station on the Lansdowne campus, the Student Shop, Ground Up Cafe, and Dylans Baron Talbot.


The recipients of Sports Scholarships for International Students 2022 will get up to £5,000 of funding towards equipment, travel expenses, coaching, competition entry fees, and support services.
