We want to be the UK’s leading professional arts university…

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

That’s where you come in. We’re growing fast and building a team of people who are as passionate about our culture as we are. Whether you’re looking for an academic role or to join our professional services, we want people who can share that vision. As well as joining a vibrant, creative culture, you’ll be working on a lively campus in a friendly seaside town, next to some of the UK’s most spectacular countryside.

AUB welcomes experts in all sorts of fields – academic, business and support. You’ll be in good company. We have links with Framestore, Burberry, Aardman Animation and the National Theatre to name but a few.

We want to recruit great people, just like you. See our current vacancies here.


To be the leading professional arts university dedicated to turning creativity into careers.


Within five years to be distinctive for our maker culture and leadership in creative learning.


Innovative We want to challenge the status quo. We believe in doing things differently and doing them well. We’re always looking for new and better ways of learning and teaching.

Collaborative We’re a one-campus university dedicated to the arts. We work closely together, across disciplines, exchanging ideas and knowledge.

Connected We prepare our students for careers in the creative industries. We’ve made strong connections with industry (starting on campus). We’re also well connected academically to other universities who think like us.

…And it’s a great place to live

Call us biased but Bournemouth has everything you need: a stunning beach, a lively town centre and a thriving arts culture. Creative Boom called us a ‘wonderful creative hub‘ and The Telegraph announced we are beating London as the fastest growing digital economy.  London, by the way, is only two hours away.

We believe in a freedom from discrimination and do all we can to provide everyone with the same opportunities and potential. Find out more about equalities at AUB.
