Arrival and your first week

Welcome to BA VFX at Arts University Bournemouth where we look forward to spending time working with and supporting you as you make great leaps forward in your learning and understanding of the creative sphere!

Starting at AUB

What's new...

For your first 3 weeks, you'll be broken up into groups for 3 days of the week.

Group 1 = off-campus online cinematography course

Group 2 = on location and online photography course

Group 3 = on campus for workshops in the morning. Online support afternoon (but with have access to the labs)

This repeats until each group has completed each part

After the first 3 weeks the rest of the terms runs as follows:

1 x theory day off campus

half-day traditional art on campus

3 x half days in the lab with a tutor

3 x half days of tutor support (tutor remote)

There will be exceptions to this rough schedule to fit around various shoots and other activities.

Students have access to the lab on their 3 allocated days per week.

Induction and your Timetable

You'll be emailed soon to enrol onto the course. It's important that you enrol by Monday 28 September so that we can set up your timetable.

Once you have enrolled you'll be able to set up your student login to access your email account and more information via the myAUB portal.

If you enrol before the 28 September then your timetable will be available through myAUB by Wednesday 7 October. This will let you know when and where to arrive on campus in the first week and the timings and how to access any remote learning sessions.
