How to apply

The deadline for applications is 1 June 2018.

Applicants are invited to contact the research office (T:01202 363334) for an initial discussion about their MPhil/PhD topic.

Alternatively you can make an initial expression of interest by email including a brief outline of no more than 1,000 words explaining your area of interest, reason for study and your relevant academic / professional background. This will enable the University to make an initial assessment of whether your topic and experience are appropriate for research degree study at AUB before you make a formal application.

Applications should be made direct to Arts University Bournemouth through the online application system. Apply Now.


Selected applicants will be invited to attend a formal interview to discuss their proposal.

Although we welcome applications for study towards a research degree throughout the year, the University has one point of entry at the start of each academic year.
