Its modern history began in the early 1970s with the creation of the Bournemouth College of Technology. Construction of the new buildings on what was the largest farm in Talbot Village, and is now BU’s Talbot Campus, was completed by September 1976.During this time, the Dorset Education Committee reviewed the provision of further and higher education throughout the county. As a result, the College was renamed the Dorset Institute of Higher Education.In 1990, the Dorset Institute successfully met all the requirements of the Polytechnics and Colleges Funding Council and was re-designated Bournemouth Polytechnic.Finally, under the Higher & Further Education Act 1992, the Polytechnic became Bournemouth University with inauguration on November 27th of the same year....
