In our painting courses you will explore the freedom of creating form through colour. We like to engage artists in drawing as it naturally comes to them: their natural voice. We encourage all drawing students to find their way with the materials and methods we present, so they can tackle projects and ideas outside the school, with confidence in their abilities.

Arts University Bournemouth
Courses / Programs
Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) is a leading university in the UK that specialises in arts, performance, design, and media education. Situated between Bournemouth and Poole in Dorset on the South Coast of England, AUB is less than 2 hours from London.

AUB provides study abroad BA (Hons) courses for international students and professionals who wish to spend time abroad in pursuit of careers in creative arts, graphic design, interior design, textiles, fashion, makeup, animation, digital media, visual communication, event management, architecture, acting, film production and photography.

Our short study abroad courses are designed for students who want to spend time learning in the UK, developing their creative skills and perhaps gaining credits towards their university degree, but do not necessarily want to spend as much as 2-3 years studying in the UK. Students are fully integrated with our full-time BA (Hons) degree students, and these courses can be taken for 1 term, 2 terms, or 3 terms.

If you can't find the exact course you want, we can design a course tailored to your individual needs. You can join several groups of students on a range of different courses and also receive one-to-one tuition.

We also provide summer study abroad programs
