Spend a day with our creative community

Our virtual Open Days are a fantastic opportunity for you to get a feel for studying with us from the comfort of your own home. You’ll have the chance to hear from our students and lecturers, ask all your burning questions and find out what life is like as an #AUBMAKER.

The health and well-being of our campus community is of utmost importance, so unfortunately we're unable to accommodate any on-campus visits for external visitors. We continue to monitor the situation and we'll update this page once the situation has changed.
