Stay connected

We're proud of our alumni and rightfully so. Many of them have gone on to do incredible things.

The Alumni Community is a continuation campus — a home and a network for all of our wonderful graduates. It’s a place to find out what everyone’s been up to and generally stay a part of our creative community. There are some exclusive benefits to be had, too.

The Alumni Community is open to students who graduated from any of our previous titles (The Arts University College at Bournemouth, The Arts Institute at Bournemouth, and Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design) and, of course, our current one.

Best of all, you don’t have to do anything to join — you automatically become a member when you graduate. Although, to ensure you don’t miss out on the Alumni communications please ensure you keep your details updated.

AUB Alumni

Though you might’ve finished your studies with us, your creative journey doesn’t end at Graduation. You’re a very special part of what makes us AUB. As your knowledge, talent and skills continue to grow and develop, so too does our outstanding reputation for world-class arts teaching and learning.

We invite our exceptional students to share in every single one of our successes, and by joining our graduate network, you’ll remain right at the heart of our creative community.
