Arts University College at Bournemouth

The Arts University College at Bournemouth, established in 1885 as a specialist institution, is now a leading University College offering high quality specialist education in art, design, media and performance across the creative industries. The Arts University College provides staff and students with a well resourced environment in which to practise to the highest professional standards.

Industry Liaison Groups and Visiting Tutors from art, design, media and performance companies also help ensure that the staff and the students are informed of current working practices and technological developments within these areas. Importantly, the University offers a specialist environment which reflects the way in which individuals and communities work together in the creative industries and where we can give you the professional skills, knowledge and confidence to realise your ambitions and to succeed in your chosen career.

Its facilities include well-equipped studios, workshops and the relevant tools and equipment to allow you to experiment and learn required industry skills. The university encourages students' input: each course has a representational system allowing  a collective voice in the development and shaping of our community and ensures that the quality of each course remains strong and its content relevant. Students are also invited to nominate members to all key University College committees and to sit on interview panels for academic staff recruitment.

The University's reputation is underpinned by consistently good reports from the body which monitors us, the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). Their most recent audit gave the University College the highest possible grade; awarding 'broad confidence' in the management of the quality of our courses. The report also commended the academic standards on offer and highlighted many features of good practice, including the contribution of technician tutors to students’ learning and the provision of library services.
