A warm welcome to all the new students who'll be joining our creative community this year. We hope you're looking forward to studying with us and we know you may have some questions. You’ll find lots of information and advice on these pages to help you prepare for your arrival at AUB including travel information, living in Bournemouth, accommodation, as well as resources and support for when you begin your studies.

As we're all adjusting to living and studying within the global Covid-19 situation, life on campus might look a little different this term, however the well-being of our students remains our highest priority. You can read about our Commitment to Students – we'd also recommend you regularly visit our Covid page with the latest updates regarding Covid-19, including advice before you travel.

Our International team are also on hand to advise and support you during your time at AUB. So, if you have any questions or need more information, get in touch, we would be happy to help you.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
