As many as required being MA
Good, more space required
I've enjoyed it but it's been quite lonely at times, as I'm from Ireland and have no family near by. I also don't get student loan, so I live off and pay all my bills off what I earn when at work at weekends, which can make me quite tired, and struggle to have time for work in uni too. It's also hard to live off less than £400 a month.
Lots and lots of people from industry come in to do guest talks and work with degree students, it's really helpful to know the uni has such close links!
Most - the variety of things you learn and being put in classes with people of similar interests Least - can be a bit unorganised sometimes
Really good, always coming up with events during and outside of uni and active on social media too!
Really good, zero complaints!
Yes - it's a 10 minute bus journey but isn't close to the town or many shops.
There's a good range of societies to join, lots of variety, such as; yoga, burlesque, bad movies etc
Depending on your tutor the feedback can be really clear or confusing, I think that's just down to if you understand them and them as a tutor rather than the uni. There are lots of counselling offers but the drop in sessions should have more people on.
im a 1st year architect student and so far its great as its an very busy course, the staff are very friendly around the university and specially library which is busy all the time.
we have a place where we can go to get help at uni, they help us to write our cv or any careers related help.
its more of an individual effect work, and always keeps us busy that i like the most. we have 3 room but its open for all the architecture students like 1,2,3 and master students all shared
facilities are great and the student union team is alway around when needed
AUB have some excellent facilities, which includes arts bar, arts and craft shop and corner shops also lots of equipments related to studies like the workshop of wood, metal and raisin
Arts university is in a very good and safe location. for me its a walking distance to the university. there are few local shops around but also a arts bar, a mini arts and craft shop and also a corner shop where i aways buy my lunch from because its freshly made.
the university is very lively and there are lots of clubs and society at university, i myself m involved in few,
I have loved every second. The university is incredible and very social. Have already made friends for life. I hope soon I am able to get more involved with the course and work very hard.
They give us loads of opportunities with guest speakers, one of the best courses.
What I like the most is the freedom and support for creative ideas. The least is that it can be very slow moving which is hard when you are eager to learn.
Incredible but food and drink is very expensive.
Only a bus ride away, not in town. Next year will be much closer!
Very good and dedicated. The university supports all societies and sports.
Very good always spoken about student all know where support is.
The food at university is overpriced and unaffordable for most people. Transport is very expensive for students- bus pass is 250 for the year. The university facilities are great and tutors are helpful but the housing is poor and run very badly.
There are often workshops available to all students
Most- lots of discussion between peers and lecturers Least- lack of clarity on marking criteria and grading, leave things last minute. Course feels disorganised
Very very good!!!
Very good but there is not always enough space
It is slightly out of the way unless you live in Winton but houses go pretty quickly, not many shops in the area so food is expensive at uni
It's not too bad, counselling not very helpful
Over the last three years I have enjoyed university. I enjoy what I create and the new machines that we have the opportunity to use. However I am not one of those students that can rely on hand outs from family to be able to afford to survive at university - so I have worked two jobs throughout my time at university and I don't feel like universities fully understand that a lot of students have to fend for themselves. As my student finance does not cover my rent, which is on the slightly higher end of homing in this area, it is hard to balance work life, social life and university life. I enjoy working and am looking forward to finishing university, but I do not regret having attended.
During my first year of university, we had a term dedicated to finding an internship or placement opportunity. They also put on career event evenings so that we can make connections and have an insight into the life after university.
What I like most about my course is that we have professionals from the industry give lectures about their life and experience, which is an interesting part to learn about. I also like that we are encouraged to use lots of different equipment that will not be easily accessible to us outside of university. What I like least about my course is that now I am in my final year we are not given as much taught time as previous years. I feel for the amount that we pay to be at university we should have support and regular lessons. While writing our dissertation a lot of fellow coursemates felt like we did not get enough support and still do not feel like we know how to write an academic essay.
The Union representatives make an active effort to make sure that everyone at university is able to be heard and represented. There are constantly events put on and they are very active on social media.
As the university is fairly small I think it has a lot of facilities considering. The campus always looks respectable and has a high quality level of equipment.
The location of my housing is very close to university and has a large, secluded driveway which helps to feel safer and more private. I live with several other housemates, most of whom are not students. The landlords make an effort to make sure everything is kept in a good condition and respond quickly when there are problems.
As the university is fairly small, there is a limited amount of activities available - however we are able to join Bournemouth University's societies, which gives us a lot of options. I have not really looked into these as I work part time outside of University to help with my bills.
When specifically asked the tutors are able to fairly quickly arrange meetings/tutorials with you so that you can talk through any support you may need. Counselling I know is also accessible on our campus, however I have never have to use it so I don't know much else on that side of things.
It's fun and nice, a bit rough in some places and can be improved but an amazing experience for someone special from an international country. A lot of fun memories made.
Don't know much but they do hold seminars and support as much as they can.
very supportive and well informed
There are many very nice and supportive facility.
It's a bit distant from town but in a nice open place so it's okay.
Nice way to meet people and communicate but university could put more effort and support the societies.
I am not sure. I like it here, everything seems right, but I haven’t felt right yet. Having a lot of doubt about myself and the course, though I think I did make the right decision. I think everything about uni in general was far too hyped up and I am still waiting for the feeling of everything being amazing to come. I think overall it is ok. It’s not amazing, it’s not awful , but it’s just not as much as I hoped or expected it would be. A bit disappointed but there’s nothing horrifically wrong. The course is taught weirdly sometimes, though it is getting better and I am starting to find it enjoyable (before I wasn’t). It being ok isn’t a bad thing, and maybe I will start to grow to like it more.
Very good, had a great meeting with the careers department, it’s one of the main reasons why I chose here, they seem very business savvy.
They are not clear enough about the subject criteria, and some of their marking is too subjective. Different modules are structured differently, I much much prefer the highly structured module where they are setting workshops as tasks, rather than “just do what you feel is right” sort of approach.
Seems pretty good, they are very approachable nice people sometimes they take a little while to get stuff done though
If you don’t ask you don’t get. They have a lot of great options and facilities but you need to ask about them, they’re not paraded about
Little far from uni for me, but there is a bus stop nearby, and it’s very close to some fast food places (good and bad!) and a 15/20 minute walk to a range of supermarkets. It’s a little distance from some clubs, very close to others. Generally quite good
It’s a small uni, there won’t be many but there’s more than I expected. The ones I attend are very well organised and run and I really love them
Counselling was terrible do not recommend, felt like they were impolite and insensitive about my issues. Tutors are ok, their feedback is to be taken with a grain as salt, as a lot of it is purely subjective and therefore useless. You have to really sift through their ideas in your head as a lot of it is just what they like in art and they will contradict each other a lot. However, sometimes they do give out really excellent advice.
I had to say I expected more for what I got nest year I think to find a different course I couldn't get financial support for my needs instead of bus ticket when I don't need one cs I am driving and need to pick up quickly my baby from nursery
not a good place to find work everything is in London and not in Bournemouth and I would prefer to find work in Bournemouth or Dorset
like everything about my course but can see that tutors got no time to catch up with me if I need them so they got no time for me and prefer if I research stuff at home so I feel like I pay so much and don't get enough support
had no chance to see if they can help me with anything
University has nothing for babies to play and as a mother of small baby it would be great to have some place where she could play and I could have time to talk with my tutor
not to bad
not enough options
not good enough I paid so much and tutors got no time for me when I need them
very good, made friends, have a position in AUBSU. The teachers are nice and the course is cool af. I can interact with the animation BA which is awesome. I have no complaints.
the accessibility and the chillness
very good no complaints
