Through discussions, presentations and creative multi-disciplinary projects, you will produce work for your portfolio and develop skills that benefit your current school studies and beyond – such as research and analysis, problem solving and working in groups. A series of themed projects will give you the opportunity to form a greater understanding of the connections between creative arts and other subjects, as well as the influence of creative processes in the world. Learning will take place on and off campus; in the university’s specialist studios and creative workshops, as well as visits in the local area to inspire or support your classroom learning.

At the end of the course, there will be an exhibition of all work produced, with group discussions and individual critiques to reinforce key concepts and skills learnt during course. You will receive an individual assessment report which, if you are studying the IB or similar qualification can be used to gain credits at your current school, and a graduation ceremony will take place in which you will be awarded your AUB Certificate of Attendance. You will also leave the course with a portfolio of work you have produced for further development.
