Why study in Dorset?

The county of Dorset has a diverse and beautiful landscape with rolling hillsides, dramatic cliffs, sweeping beaches, gorgeous villages and bustling towns.

Along the coastline are historic ports, perfect sandy beaches, massive cliffs and natural wonders like Durdle Door. Dorset is also England’s fossil hunting capital with exciting finds along the coastal landscape that is now UNESCO listed and known as the Jurassic Coast. The rugged limestone throughout has recorded some 185 million years of natural history and is layered with fossils of the plants and animals that have lived in this area during that time.

On the interior of the county are castles, abbeys and stately homes, many of which you may already have seen on TV or in movies.

Top places to visit in Dorset include the Jurassic Coast, Brownsea Island, Sandbanks, Sherborne Abbey, Christchurch Priory and Old Harrys Rocks.
