Graduation - Overview

Celebrating your achievements


Your graduation ceremony marks the moment you join our alumni community. We've collected photos and videos of the AUB graduation ceremonies from over the years, which are free for you to download and enjoy.

We’re missing a few, though, so if you have any photos from your Graduation ceremony that you’d like to share with your alumni community, please send them to

Good news — as a Graduate, you are automatically part of the AUB Alumni Community.

We’d really like to keep in touch with you. To ensure we have your most recent email address, you can update your details here.

Class of 2020 and 2021

Thank you to all Graduates and Guests who joined us in person at the Pavilion Theatre and Bournemouth International Centre in July 2021, as well as all of you who watched the ceremonies via Livestream from other parts of the world.

We feel fortunate to have been able to host a safe and appropriate Graduation event to celebrate the achievements of our outgoing students from both 2020 and 2021, especially given the trying circumstances that everyone has faced over the past year and a half.

We hope you enjoyed the proceedings, and we wish all our graduates every success in their onward journeys as they head out into exciting new careers and creative opportunities.
