Country Ambassadors

We have a group of student Country Ambassadors who work together on International events and ensure students from their country 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 are below. They are always happy to hear from prospective students.

If your country 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!

Zoe (Wing Tung) Law - Country Ambassador for China

I’m Zoe (Wing Tung Law), the Country Ambassador for China, I can speak Mandarin, Cantonese and English.

I am currently studying a BA (Hons) Fine Art course and am in my first Year.

I love that AUB provides a lot of opportunities for students to collaborate with the other majors. You can make friends with different nationalities. Also, so many Galleries on and off campus are offered to all students to exhibit their work, which is so amazing.

Relaxing, creative and inspiring are all words I would use to describe Bournemouth, which is definitely the best place in the UK. There are so many art events in the town every month, such as Inside Art in Southbourne and Art by the Sea around Bournemouth town. Many more events are coming so if you look out for them, you might found something interesting.

If you need any help, or have any questions about AUB, Bournemouth, or the UK, don’t be shy and please do email me.

You can also check the China at AUB Facebook page for more information.

I am also available on Weibo and WeChat

I enjoy living here in Bournemouth as we have one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen.  It is really nice that you can easily go for a walk or have training near the sea to relax after your lectures and study.

I am more than happy to help with different types of questions starting from how to apply for the course and finishing with how to find a place to live in Bournemouth. I am here to support you in your own language.
