Spend a day in our creative community

Our Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to get a feel for studying at AUB.

Forget the regimented open days you’ve been to in the past. Ours are a festival of diversity and excitement; a showcase of learning on a campus dedicated to the arts.

There’s only so much a website or prospectus can tell you. At an Open Day at AUB you can explore the campus, see what students are working on, and talk to course tutors.

You can get involved in our interactive workshops, take a bus tour of the local area or simply take in the atmosphere to a backbeat of sounds from our student DJs.

You might find it useful to read our Little Guide to Applying beforehand – we also give it out on the day and it might prompt any questions you would like to ask us.
