Arts Uni Bournemouth (AUB)

Arts University Bournemouth - a specialist university focusing on art, design, media and performance since 1883.

About Us

With just over 3,000 students based on campus (approximately 150 of which are postgraduate), AUB is a close-knit community of creative and collaborative innovators, who all share a common commitment to the arts. The university fosters an environment where boundaries can be pushed, beliefs and practices can be challenged, and conventions can be tested.

We offer a range of Master of Arts degrees and supervision for students who wish to undertake a Research degree (MPhil/PhD). Research degrees are validated by the University of the Arts London (UAL).

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF), over 40% of AUB’s university research was deemed to be ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world-leading’.

Based on the border between Bournemouth and Poole, means that AUB is close to all the best student spots – including clubs and restaurants, art galleries and shops and miles of sandy beaches. We offer halls of residence on campus, or closer to the town centre with various room types available for all budgets.
