Country Ambassadors

We have a group of student Country Ambassadors who work together on International and EU events and ensure students from their region feel at home when studying at AUB.

You can ask them any questions about what it’s like to study at AUB and live in Bournemouth using the email addresses below. They are always happy to hear from prospective students.

If your country / region isn’t represented here, you will still be supported throughout your time here.

If you do want to hear from a student from the country you live in, you can contact the International Office and we will do our best to find someone for you to chat to. You can always chat to us too!

Caitlyn Keaney - Country Ambassador for the America's

Hello! My name is Caitlyn and I’m the Country Ambassador for the Americas.

I am a final year BA (Hons) Costume and Performance design student, and I am from the United States.

I’ve absolutely loved my time here and always look forward to the new challenges that come with each project. The tutors are super helpful from course work to future goals and career advice, the collaborative and creative atmosphere is awesome; there’s always something going on around campus from art installations to live performances. Bournemouth itself is a beautiful town and I feel at home here, even though I’m far away from the California sunshine.

Zhuohui Li - Country Ambassador for China

Hi there, my name is Zhuohui Li and I am the regional Country Ambassador for China. My first language is Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese), but I am also fluent in English.

I am a student on the MA Film Practice course and I am really enjoying the process of learning at AUB, where there is a multi-cultural and creative learning environment. My bachelor’s degree in China is also related to film, but here it is more professional and fully equipped, where you can co-operate with students in different majors and levels. I strongly suggest you seize any opportunity to get in touch with friends around the world because the collision between Eastern and Western culture always brings you new ideas!

I have to say that Bournemouth is quiet suitable for me to live and study. It is a slow-paced city, which is very different from China. Personally, I tend to stroll by the sea to look for inspirations. I also love playing the guitar and do yoga to relax myself. Overall, it is essential to strike a proper balance between work and rest.

It is my first time studying abroad but I am not afraid at all because of my “Shameless” character. Culture difference is never a problem as long as you dare to ask and learn from it!

Lourdes Sutopo - Country Ambassador for East Asia

Hello! My name is Lourdes and I am the regional Country Ambassador for East Asia.  I am originally from Indonesia and my first language is Indonesian, but I am more than happy to respond in English.

I am currently in my first year at Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) studying BA (Hons) Fashion, I have been interested in fashion for a long time, and studying fashion at AUB really is a dream come true. I believe it was the right choice to come to AUB as I am so in love with everything in this university.

Bournemouth is an amazing town, it suits me really well and I am sure most students would say the same. It is very peaceful, and it has everything we need.

Line Oeseth - Country Ambassador for Europe

Hi! My name is Line Oseth and I am the regional Country Ambassador for Europe. I was born in Norway and came to England to start my studies at Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) a year ago. My first language is Norwegian and I am also fluent in English.

I am a BA (Hons) Acting student, currently in my second year, and I enjoy it so much. The number one reason why I wanted to do my degree at AUB is because it is an Arts University and you have the opportunity to collaborate with the different courses. This is a nice way to make new contacts and get in touch with people you can collaborate with even after University.

Bournemouth is a beautiful place, which offers everything from the picturesque beach to shopping and nightlife. I just love it here!
