Why AUB?

We want to be the leading professional arts university that enriches and engages through creative and professional excellence.

We’re well on the way to achieving that goal – but we can’t make it without some serious talent.


Guide to Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a large town with all the character of a city but has the fun of being a seaside town. It’s also ideal for families, with a great reputation of schools and a low crime rate.

Finding us couldn’t be easier. We’re based right on the border between Bournemouth and Poole — it’s the best of the both worlds, combining the one of the world’s largest natural harbours with the bustle of Dorset’s biggest town.

You can find more about what Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset all have to offer below. Just in case you weren’t convinced, you can also take a look at the guide to Bournemouth that’s written by students, for students.
