Next Steps

We're delighted to have you join us at Arts University Bournemouth, and hope that your time here will be rewarding, challenging, creative and enjoyable.

Here to help you get settled in

Once you've met all of your offer conditions and enrolment opens we'll send you two emails.

  • One email will invite you to complete Online Enrolment. This will require you to upload a passport-style photograph which will be used to create your AUB Student ID card. You'll also need to upload scans or photographs of your identification. You will need to complete Online Enrolment as soon as possible – you can't start your course until you have completed Online Enrolment.
  • The second email will contain instructions on how to set up your AUB student login. Once completed this will give you access to your AUB email account, the myAUB app (where your timetable will appear) as well as access to the free software listed below and discounted hardware from Apple and Dell.
  • Online Enrolment will open on 8 September 2023. If you haven't received emails from the AUB Admissions team about your application by this date, please contact admissions@aub.ac.uk ASAP to ensure that your application has your correct email address. If you have any queries about your Online Enrolment, please contact studentrecords@aub.ac.uk.

Before you arrive

There are two elements to your enrolment at AUB. You'll be required to:

  • Complete Online Enrolment before you arrive.
  • Attend a Face-to-Face Registration session in your first week (your Course Leader will organise this).

For your Online Enrolment, we require you to provide:

  • A head and shoulders photo of you (like a passport photo) for your AUB Student ID Card.
  • Scans or photographs of your identification. The identification we require depends on your international status.

UK students:

Please have photographs or scans of one of the following options of ID:

  1. Full valid passport
  2. Photo ID (e.g. driving licence) plus either correspondence from Student Loans Company/Student Finance England or original birth/adoption certificate

A driving licence alone won't be accepted without the correct accompanying information as listed in option two.

If you’ve taken a loan out with Student Finance England, you’ll need to complete the Online Enrolment before we can confirm your registration. Once completed, SFE will release your maintenance loan to you on the first day of term.

EU, EEA and Swiss students with settled or pre-settled status:

Please have the following:

  1. Photograph or scan of your full valid passport
  2. Your Immigration status “Share Code”

Student Route Visa students:

If you’re studying on a Student Route visa or hold any other type of visa you will need all of the following to enrol:

  1. Full valid passport
  2. Visa documentation
  3. All original qualification certificates

Enrolment ID Check

If you have any problems with online enrolment, please contact Student Records by emailing studentrecords@aub.ac.uk.

If you haven't received emails from us about your application, then please contact admissions@aub.ac.uk ASAP to ensure that your application has your correct email address.

Student ID cards are produced once we've seen the correct documentation from you, and should be able to be collected during your Face-to-Face Registration session.

If your offer is still conditional, you still need to send us your results (unless we get them from UCAS). Even if you haven’t met the exact conditions of your offer it’s important that we have your results so we can make a decision – we might still offer you a place if we’re confident you have the potential to succeed.

If you applied to us using UCAS

UCAS will receive some exam results directly from exam boards and send them on to us. This includes results for:

  • A/S, A levels and EPQs, from AQA, WJEC, Eduqas, OCR, CCEA, Cambridge International and Pearson
  • Welsh Baccalaureate
  • BTEC (including BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art and Design)
  • OCR Cambridge Technicals
  • International Baccalaureate
  • SQA Scottish Highers, Advanced Highers, HNCs and HNDs
  • Access to HE Diplomas
  • T Levels
  • Irish Leaving Certificates
  • UAL Foundation Diploma in Art and Diploma, Level 3 Diplomas and Extended Diplomas
  • Level 3 qualifications from VTCT, NCFE and some others

UCAS have some more details on their website. If your qualifications aren’t on this list (including GCSE results), or you applied to us using the application form on our website, then you’ll need to send evidence of your results to our Admissions team directly.

Sending your results

Please email your proof of results to admissions@aub.ac.uk Don’t forget to include your name, course and AUB ID number on the email so we can find your application.

In order to process your results we need clear scans/photographs that show your full name, the qualification name, the subject studied and the result grade and the name of your exam centre. We can't accept an email from you with your results listed - we need a photo or scan of your certificate/transcript (or if you’ve only just got your results, we can accept your results slip instead).

English language qualifications

If your offer conditions ask for IELTS or another accepted English language qualification, we’ll need those to be sent through too. Please make sure you’re taking the right test for your AUB course – there’s a handy list on our website.

If you have any questions about our accepted English language qualifications then get in touch – please email the Admissions team, with the subject line: “English language qualifications”.

You don’t have to tell us about your disability, but it can be useful if you do. You’ll have access to more support and help for your studies, as well as possible extra funding.

Simply complete the online disability disclosure in the AUB Applicant Portal before your course starts, or in MyAUB at any point in your course.

Visit our Disabled Students page to find out more about disability support.

AUB has arranged discounts on laptops and other hardware from Apple and Dell for our students. If you are planning on investing in a new computer to support your studies then we recommend that you wait until you have set up your AUB IT login so that you can take advantage of these discounts.

You can access these discounts by signing up to the following websites using your AUB email address:

This course uses Apple computers.

You're encouraged to bring their own laptop and mobile device to AUB to support online learning, collaboration and communication whilst at university.

Before your arrival and during your first week we will be in touch to check that you have access to the hardware, software and internet connection required to take part in your course and to let you know what support is available.

This course uses both Apple and Windows computers.

The nature of the course means that you may need to use your computer on and off-campus. We recommend that a laptop would be better than a desktop.
