Summer School 2017
In July 2017, 45 participants from 13 schools and colleges attended the AUB Specialist Summer School 2017.
This programme took place on the AUB campus. Participants had the chance to sample university life first hand, whilst receiving specialist tuition in their chosen subject; Fine Art, Commercial Photography or Interior Architecture and Design.
2017 students have gained (in their own words…)
“A new experience, meeting new friends, getting to know what happens on the course.”
“Better understanding of university life and courses on offer. I’ve developed my portfolio…met new people and was challenged by everyone’s different styles and abilities.”
“More confidence in ink drawing, life drawing and more other observation drawings.”
“I have learnt a lot about various courses they have to offer. The talk with course leaders was very helpful; the course I was thinking about studying is now something I am very interested in and hopefully will study in the future. I have gained much more subject knowledge.”
