At The Bournemouth & Poole College, everything we do ensures our students become qualified, find jobs, keep them and progress in their careers. We’re home to 11,000 students from across Dorset, the UK and the world. As well as offering a range of fantastic Degree Level courses, we’re also proud to be the largest provider of Further Education (FE) and Apprenticeships within the region.
We’re a great place to study and we understand the investment and commitment of Higher Education. That’s why everything we do focuses on our students’ goals and their future career.
We work closely with leading universities and over 2,000 businesses to review and validate our courses. We also offer top work placements so our students leave us with everything they need to be successful in their chosen field.
With tutors who are experts in their fields, our specialist staff embed years of knowledge into their teaching. Plus our students benefit from smaller class sizes and get to use top-of-the-range equipment, all designed to reflect a professional working environment.
And we must be doing something right as our students are very satisfied. In fact in 2015 we were rated as the top institution in Dorset for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey.
There’s more to us than just learning
Our students have access to some fantastic facilities. In the last seven years alone we’ve invested £28m into both our North Road and Lansdowne sites. We have Learning Resource Centres which are packed full of facilities including dedicated Higher Education zones, a world renowned AA Rosette restaurant The Escoffier, Flaunt hair and beauty salons and The Fit Rooms gym. Our students can also get involved in clubs and societies and be part of our lively Students’ Union.
