We offer 70 courses in 19 subjects. Our Short Courses give you the confidence to express your creativity. From practical skills to life or career changing possibilities, our courses in art, design, media and performance will help you explore your potential.

The quality of AUB Short Courses is second to none. You’ll benefit from the facilities and teaching support of one of the UK’s top arts universities. The courses are designed by leading tutors to bring creative subjects alive. You simply need enthusiasm and passion rather than formal qualifications to take part.

So what’s stopping you? Our courses run in the evenings or on Saturdays, so you can fit them round school, college, work or family.

Our Short Courses are generally suitable for anyone aged 16+. If you’re aged 9–16, you may be interested in our Saturday Art School — it gives aspiring young artists the chance to explore creativity outside regular school classes, guided by our expert tutors. We can also create fully bespoke training programmes on request.
