In collaboration with the Southern Universities Network WE HOSTED A UNIQUE FIVE-DAY ACTIVITY SESSION FOR THOSE IN YEARS 10, 11 & 12 WHO HAVE AN INTEREST IN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN.
The event aimed to encourage those students who can benefit most from what we have to offer, whatever their background, to apply to further and higher arts education. This activity was funded by Southern Universities Network.
Our Gold AIM Summer School was divided into different subject areas giving students the option of focusing on one main discipline.
This five-day activity was designed to give your students a taster of studying at further or higher education level. These sessions allowed them to develop specialist learning, team building, problem-solving and communication skills.
This activity took place on 09, 10, 11, 12 & 13 July 2018 from 9:30am– 3:00pm.
Gold AIM Summer School takes place on our campus located at Wallisdown on the border between Bournemouth and Poole. The campus offers a series of modern, purpose built studios, workrooms and teaching areas.The workshops and studios are well equipped to the latest in industry standards and the university offers an enviable provision of specialist computer equipment.
We were recently awarded the Gold Standard rating by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)
