I've been so incredibly happy with my course so far. My course tutors are so knowledgeable and supportive in every way possible. AUB not only helps in building your practical skills and artistry, but there is a focus on setting each student up for their future success. Studying in the UK has been such an amazing experience that I won’t ever forget.
