I chose AUB because the Costume course is so respected in the industry, and when I attended their open day I fell in love with Bournemouth and the area. The tutors are amazing and they have so much experience you can learn from – getting to work with different departments like Acting, Dance, Make-Up and Film Production really helps you get ready for industry and build up skills for when you graduate.
Our entry requirements vary depending on what sort of course you're choosing to study.
