great environment and facilities, such 3 d workshop with helpfull technitians. great fine art ma teacher who always open to support. freedom to create workshops and intalattions as experiment.
It's been good. Lots of personal issues effected my course and friendships however if this wasn't the case I'm sure that I'd be enjoying it more. The uni itself is great.
Always talks and lectures which is brilliant. They are available for everybody but ran separately from the course so you must ask about them or regularly check emails.
Very independent which I like. Dislike that they give us short sessions every day - this doesn't allow a part time job during the week. Can also leave you feeling therapeutic if you don't have a full day to attend.
AUBSU is good however they don't promote their events very well so they are often missed.
For my course there could be more computers available. And a bigger area for crafts. However overall very good.
The University is very far from halls however they do run a very good bus service which you can buy at a discounted cost, being a student. The campus itself is situated next to a doctors and a dentist which is useful.
It's great. I'm definitely in the right place, studying what I want to do as a career. I've found like-minded people too that I feel I can relate to compared to people from home.
I haven't of yet heard anything about employment when leaving the university, probably because I'm only in first year.
It's constantly busy which I like. You always learn new things. However, classes could perhaps cross over and collaborations with people on other courses could also be made more aware of.
There are plenty of places for students to go around the university, across both campuses. However, it seems BU have a popular sports union compared to AUB
Excellent. They really think about being eco-friendly.
compared to my address (shared rental house), the university accommodations have better transport links with the buses to get into town from uni. Local shops are close by in my area
There's something for everyone. It's just how committed you are.
If you are of need of extra guidance or help, it is always available. Even if you aren't on campus, you can always email to let whoever you need to speak to know about what you need.
I've really enjoyed and will be sad to leave. It has helped me meet many people and improved my skills a lot since being here. There has always been a lot on offer in the way of activities and events both within the uni and within Bournemouth.
they encouraged us in second year to apply for internships by having a semester based on building and designing our portfolio websites. Now we are in our last year we have portfolio reviews to try and get our work up to industry standard
I like how hands on the lecturers can be with us, it feels like they really want to help us succeed. I wish we were taught more skills within the subject, a lot of the technical side of stuff is very self taught
they represent our students well and are always asking for ways in which facilities and things can be improved. They often hold events throughout the year that students have reuested
yeah, no more than a 10 minute walk
there's a wide variety available, even more so with 2 universities in the area
the feedback from the tutors is very constructive, we have a choice of multiple lecturers that can review and help us with out work. I cant comment on the counselling side as ive never had a reason to speak to them, however they have made it known that support is there if needed
It's been great. I got direct entry into the second year and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to meet people because everybody knew each other but everybody have been great and I've made loads of friends. The tutors are supportive and great. Overall I'm really happy.
There are always lectures with industry professionals. But they are usually on when I have class so I haven't had any time to go.
I would like more information in the beginning of the course instead of getting vital information 2 weeks before hand in. But the tutors are invested and fun.
I like their Instagram account. They are very active which is good.
They could be better n my course. We need more sewing machines, we have to wait sometimes and fall behind because there aren't enough sewing machines. But the school has a modern feeling and everything is neat and clean, which is everything I could ask for
Unibus is a great transport so I don't mind it taking around 10-15 minutes to get to and from school.
A lot of clubs to sign up to but I'm so busy with my school work that I don't have time to sign up to any, even though I want to
Good, the tutors are always willing to listen and help if they can and they always encourage us to speak up. I haven't had to look to counselling yet so I can't speak on that.
Very good, it's hard working but prepares you for the reality after university. The course encourages engagement with other student for artistic inspiration as well as social positives.
There are many career days and people to discuss help towards this subject.
I love : The wide range in resources given by the library help given throughout the entire course/project the creative inspiration the knowledge taught on the technical aspect
very good variety in terms of help towards students in any department to make their university experience worth it.
Its a distance from the centre of bournemouth which is where the halls of residence is located however frequent buses transports the student efficiently. However for many students in 2nd and 3rd years live in walking distance to the university
There's a large variety in societies and very simple to set up a new one as the large range of facilities can accommodate them.
very good and its widely acknowledged by students that support is encouraged
Despite my anxiety i feel comfortable and welcome on campus, with the support of other staff and students. I was struggling but my tutors gave me the support i needed which made me more confident about passing the course.
So far not very much as i am on the foundation course.
I like the independence of the course, how im able to choose my own paths and make my own creative decisions, however i do feel that sometimes there is too little guidance and i get stuck.
I think the Student's Union does exceptionally well in terms of student representation, making me feel safe and comfortable on campus.
I feel that any equipment or resources i would need that arent here can be facilitated easy but there hasnt been an instance yet where they havent had something i needed
Yes, university is not far from the town centre, however there could be more amenities such as shops nearby as food can get pretty expensive on campus.
There could be a larger variety of societies but we can also join the BU societies so i guess its not that big of a deal
Feedback from my tutors is really good and imformative, always helps me improve. They deal with any issues i have well with a lot of physical and emotional support.
I have enjoyed it massively. made some great friends and learned so many skills. The foundation course helped me find out what i wanted to follow for the next 3 years. It has progressed me as a person and i feel more motivated then ever
Uni has great reputation and is a hot spot for job hunters. my course next year has a 90% employment rate
The amount of lessons scheduled
Yes 40 min walk 20 min bike. 10 min bus. all over flat ground so is very easy
good has many opportunities and events to get involved with
very good. ask if you need it
So far, so good. I have made friends, learnt a lot, developed on my creativity and grown in independence. Im excited to see whats next in store for me. i have also really enjoyed living on my own.
We have been told that when we wish to take a placement or summer placement, the uni will help us contact and succeed in getting a place.
Facilities are what I like the most, the least would be the lack of contact hours, however that may be increasing anyway.
Not entirely educated on what the definition of SU is and how much they do. However I haven't found any problems or negatives in regard to it.
The studios, cameras, equipment and library facilities are brilliant. I am thoroughly enjoying using them
The actual uni is fine in location but not ideal, having to get a bus everywhere isn't great, however the bus service here is brilliant. Very regular and normally quite short in length of time.
There is a lot of sports and societies available. I would say the selection is good.
I haven't used the counselling facilities, however, the tutors are good, I enjoy learning from them
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at university, AUB is a really great place to join as its so much fun and you learn so much . i have made great friends from a range of courses an the small scale allows you to get the most out of your university experience. there is always something happening in the courtyard, fundraisers, music etc to support other students projects, markets to also advertise and support students and even courtyard parties at the end of term.
There are so many workshops and talks that you are able to sign up; these are really helpful in building your skill base. There are very friendly careers advisors and it is easy to book an appointment with them. I have a 6-8 week work placement period with in my university timetable which i think is highly beneficial to my employability.
We have small course therefore this allows us to get the most out of our learning as you can ask many questions in each session and also get one to one time with your tutors to discuss assignments. This also allows us to get feedback on work from our tutors which is very beneficial. there's a lot of creative freedom with in the course, and a lot of interaction with external businesses through running events and volunteer work.
Are student union is very hand on in creating a safe and inclusive environment, they ensure that students have a voice when they want to discuss something about the university.
on my course we have good facilities including a macbook suite, you are able to hire out laptops or other equipment you may need including things like graphic tablets. Our library is well stocked, however does sometimes get overcrowded and it can be a struggle to find places to sit and work. Toilets are nice and clean. The canteen and shop provide nice food - however it can slightly expensive for students. but there are microwaves if you want to bring in your own food and hot water supplied.
The university is about 10 minutes on the bus from most of its accomodation and the town square etc. I personally walk to and from university and this takes me half an hour each way. The university does however have a very fast and efficient bus service for students to transport to town/ accommodation.
AUB being a small university does not have the largest funding for societies, I would like to have more societies -such as cheerleading being set up. Bournemouth university is right next door though and Arts university students are able to join most of their societies if they want.
support offered by tutors is incredible, they are always happy to help you with the explanation of work, they are always pushing us to go out and achieve as much as we can with their support. very friendly and easy to talk to about work and personal life if the students are struggling with anything they are alway there to speak to . we always get great feedback on our work and the option to discuss this. The university itself is amazing and they are huge advocates for well being, student union and student services have additional support to wellbeing and counselling which is very easy to use, and it is a quick process to book if you feel you need help. If you book a well being session you get the chance to discuss what may help you in the future - if you may need therapy or additional support.
