AUB is an Arts, Design, Media and Performance Specialist University. We relentlessly innovate, collaborate and connect in ways that turn creative talent into careers.
Do more than study: Make - We encourage a maker culture where students see the practical application of everything they do. We equip students with the skills the creative industries demand (our employment stats say we’re doing something right).
Do more than teach: Inspire - We expect our teachers to do more than inform. We want them to inspire a generation with memorable, ground–breaking courses. To help them, we invest in their research, support them in their real world businesses, and encourage them to bring innovation into their courses.
Do more than attend: Live - We want students to live life to the full, on campus and off. This shouldn’t be difficult when you’re surrounded by the New Forest, great beaches, and World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Bournemouth boasts a great nightlife and culture too. Oh and London is just two hours away.
Do more than work: Collaborate - No creative subject stands alone at AUB. Cross fertilisation of ideas and techniques benefits everyone. And it’s exactly how students will experience the real world. Our collaborations extend beyond courses that work together, to the wider university world and links with the industry.
Do more than observe: Engage - We don’t want our students and staff to be bystanders. There’s plenty to be involved in here from debate to sport, volunteering to social life. A richer more rewarding experience of life will be good for your studies too.
Do more than dream: Achieve - We’re a practical university with strong ambitions for our graduates to enjoy rewarding careers.Our alumni constantly return with incredible stories of things they’ve done, business they’ve created and awards they’ve won.
