BA (Hons) Graphic Design student Mike Smith has won a competition to design a poster for a ‘United Nations’ sponsored ‘World Toilet day’ for Pump Aid.
Pump Aid’s current programmes are improving access to safe, sustainable water for rural households in Malawi. Through partnership with communities they also safeguard health through better hygiene and sanitation practises and support entrepreneurial approaches to water supply, helping them to move beyond water and achieve lasting empowerment and sustainability.
Every Autumn, Arts Bournemouth brings Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival to the UK’s leading resort with AUB as headline sponsor.
The festival is a rich mix of some of the best regional, national and international arts across dance, film, theatre, performance, visual arts, spoken word, literature and music.

3 AUB students have taken part in a collaborative student project run by the National Arts Learning Network entitled ‘Mapping Territory’

BA (Hons) Commercial Photography student.
“Living in Bournemouth was always a childhood dream of mine, I had come here to the beach with my family, and since then I fell in love with the atmosphere, with the friendly faces I saw and the fresh south sea air! So when it came to picking a university I had no trouble there, as I wanted every opportunity to come back and live here – and of course, the university is well known for its creative spark and amazing approach to education.
BA (Hons) Creative Events Management student. By studying abroad I have pushed boundaries that expanded my capabilities as an artist and individual.
After graduating high school in the US, I knew I wanted to travel. In the UK I’ll earn my degree in three years, rather than four, and be spending a lot less on tuition. Having never been to England, I took a chance and embarked on an adventure that continues to be an amazing experience.
10 BA (Hons) Fine Art students recently took part in a residency at Lokaal01 in Antwerp, Belgium. The artists lived and worked in the space for 7 days using living and working in a foreign city as their inspiration.
Senior Lecturer Dominic Shepherd said:
BA (Hons) Illustration student. I have always loved the outdoors and steered clear of busy cities. So Bournemouth is perfect for me with its picturesque beaches and close proximity to vast areas of natural beauty such as the New Forest. I would say having such a large array of places to visit definitely benefits my work. Not only for inspiration, but for first hand research and observational drawing. I don't have a car and so enjoy cycling.
