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.

Coronavirus Advice

In line with Government advice, AUB can now resume in-person teaching and learning for undergraduate and postgraduate students and by now, you should be in conversation with your Course team about when you will be able to start on campus. To ensure as safe and smooth a start as possible, we’ve revised the autumn term start dates, with some year groups starting at different times. See the new Term Dates for 2020/21. If you wish to continue to learn remotely until you feel able to travel to AUB, you should talk to your Course team, who will do everything they can to enable you to continue learning online.

We recognise the uncertainty students may be having in these difficult times. We’re here to support and help students however we can. If you are planning to travel to the UK, you can contact who can provide support and advice whilst you are in quarantine and help with checking into your halls accommodation. You should also contact them if you have a positive covid 19-test result. We also suggest you let the International team know when you intend to arrive in the UK so that we can support you in your return. Please email:
