Arrival and your first week
Welcome to BA Illustration 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!
Starting at AUB
The Autumn Term will be a mix of studio-based and online teaching (‘blended learning’). Tutorials, seminars, lectures, and critiques will be conducted online; workshops on-site and online, via live streaming. It is important for us that students are able to engage in the programme where they feel most comfortable studying. To make sure there are opportunities for on-site, studio-based learning, we will be providing access to studios for at least one day per week in year group ‘bubbles’. Virus-related hygiene and social distancing measures are in place across the campus in order to ensure a safer working environment.
At the start of term, materials packs will be given to all new students so that they may decide whether to work in studio, or follow workshops at home. Along with Zoom for tutorials, and Panopto and YouTube for lectures and workshops, we’ll be making use of social apps to allow our students to connect informally with their course mates wherever they’re working. Details of these will be available on the Illustration course blog available through myAUB after you enrol.
Induction and your Timetable
You will be emailed soon to enrol onto the course. It is important that you enrol by Monday 28 September so that we can set up your timetable.
Once you have enrolled you will be able to set up your student login to access your email account and more information via the myAUB portal.
If you enrol before the 28 September then your timetable will be available through myAUB by Wednesday 7 October. This will let you know when and where to arrive on campus in the first week and the timings and how to access any remote learning sessions.
