We are the leading arts university for the creative industries. We relentlessly innovate, collaborate and connect in ways that turn creative talent into careers. 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).
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.

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.
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.
