EU and International Scholarships

Here you'll find all you need to know about applying to AUB as an international student.

EU and International Scholarships

We aim to have a diverse student environment with the best creative talent in the UK and have several bursaries and scholarships available. These are awarded for every year of your course, giving you financial support throughout your time studying with us.

We want to make this as a simple process as possible – there are no scholarship application forms to fill out - you'll be automatically considered for all eligible scholarships and bursaries when you complete an application to one of our full-time courses.

To help you plan and budget your finances during your time at Arts University Bournemouth, as an international student, we've created a Cost of Living guide.

If you'd like to discuss any of these financial awards or discuss any financial matters, get in touch with our International team who'll be able to help.
