Design Welcome Guide

Arrival and your first week

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.

Arrival and your first week

Welcome to BA (Hons) Design at Arts University Bournemouth where we look forward to spending time working with and supporting you as you make great leaps forward in your learning and understanding of the creative sphere!


Online enrolment opens in September 2024 for applicants who’ve met their conditions. Once open, it's important that you enrol as soon as possible so we can set up your timetable.

Once you’ve enrolled, you’ll be able to set up your student login to access your email account and more information via the myAUB portal.

Your timetable will be available to view from September.

Normally, your timetable will only show course-level sessions when you first enrol. Any sessions that take place in a smaller group will be added later on as we put you into your groups on the timetable system so please be patient if there are only a few sessions to start with!

Arrival on campus

We're looking forward to meeting you all on campus soon. We'd recommend that you make sure you're available to attend on campus or online sessions throughout the whole of your first week.

In August, we'll add your course arrival times and locations to this page so make sure you come back to check for more details!

Face-to-face registration

During your first few days, you'll need to attend a face-to-face registration session, where we'll check your details and complete your enrolment.

AUB Student ID collection

When you have completed face-to-face registration, you'll be able to collect your physical AUB student ID card. This will also be your library card for the duration of your course.
