Students who need extra financial support in order to study at AUB may be able to apply for a scholarship or a grant from a fund to help them navigate student life.
Some examples of bursaries and scholarships available at AUB include:
Discretionary Support Fund – this provides important support such as bus and food vouchers, and occasionally loans or other grants, to students from under-represented groups who come from a household where the total income is below £25,000.
Level 6 Bursary – Any students who are already receiving a full maintenance loan and who are progressing onto Level 6 study at the university will be granted a £300 bursary.
Care Leavers – For students who attend AUB from a care background, they can claim up to £2,000 to help them with their studies.
Disabled Students – There is a fund to help support any students with a disability. A £200 contribution towards buying a laptop can be provided through the DSA for eligible students.
Students who wish to study at Arts University Bournemouth are required to pay annual tuition fees, just as they would at any university in the UK. These tuition fees stand at £9,250 per year for UK students, and £16,950 per year for international students, including those in the EU.
Any students applying from the UK are also able to apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the costs of their course. These loans can pay off the tuition fees in full and are only repayable when the student starts to earn a minimum amount, currently £26,575 per year, although this may change.
Students can also apply for a maintenance loan to help cover living costs. These are means tested and so will depend on the household income of the student applying. Again, students do not need to repay these loans until they earn above the minimum threshold.
