BU rises 18 places in Complete University Guide

Posted on: 10/06/2021

Bournemouth University has risen 18 places to 68th in the Complete University Guide rankings 2022.

The rankings use measures such as entry standards, student satisfaction and graduate prospects to rank UK universities, with BU rising in the 2022 table.

Professor John Vinney, Vice-Chancellor of Bournemouth University, said, “I am proud of our BU community, and this rise is a recognition for all their hard work and dedication, especially through what has been an unprecedented last year. My thanks go to all staff for their work, as well as to our wonderful students, and members of the BU community for working together to inspire learning, advance knowledge and enrich society.

The Guide also publishes a series of subject-specific tables, with BU placing in the top ten in three subjects: Complementary Medicine (5/11), Health Studies (6/29) and Tourism, Transport, Travel and Heritage Studies (7/57).

In addition BU also placed 12/85 for Art and Design, 16/79 for Social Work, 18/29 for Paramedic Science and 19/47 for Counselling, Psychotherapy and Occupational Therapy among other tables.

These latest rankings build on other recent accolades for the university, including a 95th place in the THE Young University 2020 rankings, which lists universities worldwide under 50 years of age, and the THE Impact rankings 2021, which looks at university performance against the UN Sustainable Development goals, for which BU was also highly-ranked, placing 74th out of 1,115 universities included in the global rankings.
