Boston University


BU-Boston University is a private institute in Boston, Massachusetts. This university is nonsectarian but has a historical connection with the United Methodist Church. It was created in 1839 by Methodists. Before the university moved to Boston in 1867, its first and original campus was in Newbury, Vermont. It offers master's degrees, bachelor's degrees, doctorates, and dental, medical, law and business degrees through 17 schools and colleges across three urban campuses. The primary campus is situated along the Charles River in Boston's Fenway-Kenmore, while the BU Medical Campus is in Boston's South End neighbourhood.

It is a comprehensive, international, private research institute devoted to educating students to be resourceful, reflective individuals ready to adapt, live and lead in an interconnected world. It is a dedicated institute to benefit society and generate new knowledge. The founding principles of BU are to make higher education accessible to all and that scholarship, research, artistic creation, and professional practice should be performed in the service of the local and international community.
