AUB’s strong maker culture puts collaboration at the heart of our practice, supporting our students to develop professional skills and supporting our industry partners to develop innovative products, services and experiences.

As a specialist institute of learning, AUB has a strong reputation in delivering skills-based capabilities across art, design, media and performance. We have multiple levels of engagement including ‘Live Briefs’ for students, staff-led research projects, staff industry secondments, student internship and EU funded innovation projects.

AUB have recently been successful in attracting £1.2m investment from the European Regional Development Fund to support research and innovation projects with Dorset Industry and £1.4 million from the Dorset Growth Deal to develop an Innovation Studio to support start-ups in the region.
