So far I have enjoyed my experience. It's been different to how I thought it would be but not in a bad way. I know I made the right choice of university for me. It's small but still has the connections into the industry. There is also a really nice community within the university.
I have noticed the invitation to a few lectures on careers and employability but it is not something that's really come into my course yet.
There is a lot of variety and we are able to try out many things especially in stage 1 of the course. I wish there was more sign ups for different workshops so that you could work more individually and experiment with your practise.
I think they are good, they pick people from every course to become student representatives. You also see the student union around campus a lot doing various activities.
The facilities the university have are really good. Especially the print room. To be better the print room could be bigger so there could be more open access. There could also be more study spaces like the library as the current one gets full very quickly and it can be hard to find an area to sit.
The location of the university doesn't really effect how I think about it but I would say there is not a lot around it. You would go to the university just for university. The bus stop being so close to campus makes it very easy to get anywhere you want to go though. Also in terms of my accommodation it is a very short bus ride to get there.
There are a range of societies however I do not think there are a lot but appreciate it is not the largest university. There are also not enough if any that I am personally interested in. Although I do appreciate that they give you the option to set up your own societies if that is something you are interested in.
I would say overall the support is good. Academically wise I have found someone is available to talk to when ever you need some advice. However there hasn't been as much feedback given in tutorials as I expected. Or tutorials timetabled. But what I do receive is very helpful. I also know there is personal support like counselling available if I were to need it from student services.
It’s fun but challenging. Be sure to manage time properly and ask for help and advice when you need it. Over all it is very enjoyable and worthwhile :) :) :) :)
Internships, portfolio advice and careers research
Amazing couldn't ask for more. Well worth the hard work and effort it took to make it into the course I am on. AUB offers lots of support for times of need. I have learnt a lot about my subject area. The facilities are incredible.
The uni makes every little effort to help us gain work placements and work after university and it applies greatly.
The practicality of our course is outstanding. Lots of help from out lectures. The course is just outstanding.
Very good facilities outstanding equipment. Very helpful and polite
Bus services are available which means traveling to university couldn't be any easier.
Very well thought of, lectures are always available. There are many drop in times for other needs.
Its been amazing, i am really enjoying my course and getting to know people from all over the world. If i could say anything to future students of the course its just throw yourself into anything and everything
I wish they could be more interactive. Many lessons are just sitting and listening to the teachers talk
I don't hear anything much student union. I think we should get emails every month about them
Very good they have all up to date computers and filming equipment
its a 10/15 minute bus journey which is very good and the buses are every 10 minutes
We do not have many societies so i wish we could have some more
Very good, there is always someone to talk to if needed
I enjoy my course. I feel like I already became much better actress and I'm still in my second year. I'm also foreign student and I noticed that my English progress . I find tutors and stuff lovely and very supportive. It's a great course .
We have people coming to talk with us about the industry we wanna persuade our career in. We also talk about our plan B.
I love that our tutors are very supportive and they love what they do. They also have great knowledge, I wish we have more contact hours.
I think it's good.
It's good, however sometimes we struggling especially near end of the term with not having enough rooms for rehearsal, more rooms would be great.
We have small shops around however big supermarket is closer approximately would be great.
There are lots of societies and club in the near Bournemouth University that we can use.
I regularly use student service help with academic writing. I find it really helpful and Trevor is great tutor. My marks are progress with the time thanks to that. Tutorials with our tutors are also great.
loved it, met so many people and learned so so much. throw yourself into everything you can, and take every opportunity given to you ,its such a great experience
we have a really good employability rate and each course teaches us skills for employment as well as having to do a placement to get more experience for this
i like how they teach us such a broad range of skills and everything we need to know for the outside world after uni. I don't like how expensive everything is, yes we have access to so many machines, but the fabric and supplies we have access to are quite pricey
student union are always trying to do more for the uni
facilities are really good and clean
All the halls are a 10 minute drive from the uni if you are able to have a car, however if you need the bus it will take 20/25. its not walking distance. Local amenities are close to the accommodation but not the uni
sports are good and the bournemouth uni, however not so much for the arts uni as the wont let us join a lot of their sports team
really good, there is always someone at hand to talk to, or to get help from, feedback is always really helpful
I love my university, I have learnt so many skills since last year and I thoroughly enjoy every part of the course! The tutors are incredible and offer such a breadth of knowledge which informs your practice greatly! I would highly recommend Fine Art BA at AUB!
Regular employability lectures that help you acquire important skills! Courses also include professional development modules that require writing CVs and website design. Frequent guest speakers from the same line of work as most people want to go in to. Opportunities to study abroad!
Very independent, which I like! Lots of contact hours. No negatives
Incredible! We are only a small university campus and students are well represented and the SU run a lot of events!
The university is not close to the nearest town but is close enough to my accommodation and local amenities to be accessible.
There are not very many societies specific to arts uni Bournemouth but BU offers a broad selection of societies that we have access to!
Lots of academic and pastoral support offered!
to read a lot about the history of design and to be aware of the things hapening around them because everything could influence the way we design. To love what they do
most: no exams least: vould need more time with tutors
It's been stressful, but the uni has been understanding. I've had difficulty within my own personal life seperate from uni and student services have helped me through. I'm in my final year and glad I stuck it out and I'm glad I came to this uni.
My lecturers met with me before I had an interview and gave me advice, I got the job.
I don't like that we are forced to work in a group sometimes, I understand that its practice for working in a team "in the real world" but in the real world people will actually do the work they're meant to, at university theres always one person in the group who lets you down. I do like how small my course is, much more personal.
Very good location, I'm a 5 min walk
For a small uni theres a lot
All but one of my lecturers are helpful
I have very much enjoyed my time so far at university and I feel like I have the support by the staff there that I will achieve. I feel it is a positive step forward to my dream career as a set designer. I feel more independent and am constantly encouraged to learn about the world around me and how to implement my own self into a new society
There were fairs where part time jobs were advertised. The student services also have leaflets to help look. They are also there to advise if you need help.
I like how attentive and close the lecturers are. I feel I can go to them for any enquiries and feel satisfied about the direction my work is going knowing that i'm on the right track. They guide me but allow me independence to learn from my mistake without it affecting my overall result; supporting the idea of development and making mistakes isn't necessarily a bad thing I like least is the lectures and classes overlapping too much. My first assignment felt rushed and then a free week to get the tasks done. I felt it would have been easier going bit by bit to allow my brain to focus on one thing at time therefore allowing more sufficient work to be produced.
It is an outstanding facility. There assist with any issues you are dealing with whether it be mental health to financial problems to student accommodation. They provide a great service and I feel they are a reliable source to depend when you are stuck with questions.
I feel I can produce a great standard of work with the facilities provided. My course is very practically dependent and I have to produce an immense amount of physical evidence of work, eg costume, sample piece or art work. The university has industrial sewing machines which saves me the money to buy my own as they are very costly. Same can be spoken about photoshop.
It is not close to my accommodation by walking. However there are regular buses to and from university that allows me easy access. However it is difficult to go by car as there is no parking at the university
The university allows you to join the Bournemouth University clubs and societies, they are situated adjacent to the Arts University. There are a variety to chose from and all were welcoming at the freshers fair
As I have mentioned, both the course tutors/lecturers and the student services staff have been extremely supportive
