Bournemouth University

Bournemouth University is one of the UK’s leading modern Universities. Bournemouth University was founded in 1992; however, the origins of its predecessor date back to the early 1900s with the name Bournemouth Municipal College. The college initially offered courses to prepare students for the university of London degrees.

The college became the Bournemouth College of Technology in the 1970s and was later changed to the Dorset Institute of Higher Education (DIHE). Bernard MacManus was appointed a director in 1983 and this period witnessed a significant expansion in curriculum and student numbers. The expansion under  MacManus allowed the Institute to make a strong case to become a polytechnic in 1990 and in 1992, all polytechnics were awarded University status and the Institute was renamed to become Bournemouth University.

By September 1994, the University recorded over 9,000 students (nationally and internationally) to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees together with 11 professorial posts endowments. Currently, the University records over 16,000 students including over 3,000 international students.
