Bournemouth University is planning to invest £140m into its facilities and academics.
BU’s plan will run until 2018 and the money will be spend on new buildings and staff.
University will spend most of the money on new buildings and only £4-5m will be spend on the new university academics.
The Breaker talked to BU students about their feelings on the new plan.
Eva Kowalek, Bournemouth University student said: “It is a good idea to put money into improving university standards. However if possible, they should put more money into grants for students. Spending £4-5 million on academics is not enough.”
A huge slice, £110m will be spend on the construction of new buildings for the University.
Freya Toovey, from Bournemouth University commented : “I believe that this is far too much money spend on buildings and facilities. I would like to see more investemnt in academic site of the university.”
But Andrew Clyne, a Psychology student at BU said: “Bournemouth University should put money into refurbishing the campus. I was surprised by the exterior buildings – it definitely needs a good paint. I studied at Kent University before and it was absolutely stunning. We even had a cinema in the campus.”
BU’s current debt is £23m and it has to borrow money to make this plan happen.
