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 – it might prompt any questions you would like to ask us.

2017 Dates

Open Days: 

Our General Open Days run from 9:30am – 3:30pm.

PLEASE NOTE: The BA (Hons) Dance course talk is hosted in two parts. Your day will start off campus at Pavilion Dance South West (located in Bournemouth Town Centre) which is a short 10 minute car journey from the main campus.

This is where the Dance course talk will be held. Once you have attended the talk here you can then visit the main AUB campus should you wish to meet students and see the on-campus facilities.  You will be emailed a guide approximately 10 days prior with further information about the day.

All other course talks are hosted on the AUB campus.
