Courses can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis on campus.
The university offers distinctive and exciting opportunities for students to engage with their subject area and professional discipline. Students are actively encouraged to interrogate their existing practices and take creative risks by exploring new ideas and methods. Courses are designed to challenge students and to support the development of their skills and understanding at an advanced level.
Course lecturers are experts in art, design, and media and are supported by the university to remain active in industry, through professional secondments. This ensures that teaching is up-to-date and highly relevant.
AUB offers a Master of Research (MRes Arts) course designed for students who wish to study at master’s level with an independent project as part of their course. This helps students develop their research skills and provides a stepping-stone towards doctoral study. The course combines a programme of taught modules with an independent research project of the student’s own design.
The university also offers a range of MPhil and PhD research degrees.
Research degrees are awarded and validated through the university’s partnership with University of the Arts London. Students will spend three separate weeks at the University of the Arts London Research Network (RNUAL) in London as part of their degree.
The university has a number of research networks, including Black Mirror, Stitching Together and AUB Human, which connect artists and creative practitioners from various disciplines.
AUB doesn’t currently offer any courses delivered via distance learning. The university's objective is for students to become part of a community of creative practitioners. Instead of 'doing their own thing', students actively collaborate as part of a whole.
With such a heavy focus on creative collaboration, given the nature of the courses and subject matter, distance learning is not a viable study mode. Despite this, the university is committed to ensuring that students from every lifestyle and background can achieve their creative potential, which is reflected through the wide range of courses, accommodation options and support services available.
