Before making the decision on where to study, I visited a friend who also studied BA (Hons) Film Production at AUB. After visiting the campus and seeing how they work on the film set, I knew this was the course and university for me. I'd say studying in UK isn’t as hard as it might seem at first – you settle in quickly and it's worth it in the end as you meet so many different people, see the world and have lots of new experiences.
AUB is surrounded by nature and beautiful sights that inspire me – I've been able to explore my creativity in so many ways. The course staff are lovely and studying abroad has given me a new perspective into my own home country as well as exposing me to new ideas. It's been an amazing three-year experience.
I'm in my 3rd year in BA (Hons) Acting – I chose AUB because of its creative environment and the opportunity for cross-collaboration and engagement in various projects. The course has offered me opportunities to work with different people and explore so many sides of acting. Studying in the UK has been a transformative and liberating experience – it has broadened my horizons and helped me evolve as a person.
One of the things that I enjoy the most in my course is the variety. We don't focus on just one aspect of fashion design, we work on sewing and garment construction skills as well as pattern making and adjusting. Studying in Bournemouth is great – and a real upside to being in the UK for me is that I am able to travel by train or bus to visit new exhibitions that I may have otherwise been unable to see.
Studying in the UK has been an amazing journey. I've met so many great friends both internationally and locally. The student life here is great, the beaches and local area are lovely to explore – the UK is full of beautiful places to visit. Overall, these past three years have been the most magical and exciting moments in my life and I'm so happy to have been able to join AUB.
