Such an amazing environment for all creative courses, all students work together and in such a welcoming campus. Staff go above and beyond with a lot of contact time and advice whenever you need it. Due to it being small there's a big creative social scene.

Having been a student in the first year to pay close to 9000 a year, I am a little disappointed with the lack of resources available on my course and the lack of one to one tutoring. My course didn't even provide paper or pencils, and I had a total of 2 tutorials over 2 terms for my final project which is supposed to be the most important project of my academic life. The campus itself is a fantastic place with a very creative buzz and the library is an excellent resource for specialist information regarding your subject. However there are very few clubs and societies run by AUB itself, most of which are related to art. I don't know about anyone else by it would be nice to meet up with students and not talk about art when you are doing art 24/7. AUB students can join the numerous societies provided at the neighbouring university BU so this makes up for it somewhat. The students union isn't particularly prominent on campus, I didn't even know where their office was until the last term.

My experience so far has been negative. Too many students have been let into the foundation studies course, we have been given a new tutor each day meaning that our progress can not be tracked and receiving guidance is difficult, some tutors are sarcastic and vague when giving briefs which in turn produces 'unsatisfactory and disappointing' work. Also needs a student car park, it is easier and cheaper to drive to uni rather than get a bus when it rains, and I cannot be expected to carry around large pieces of work and heavy bags everyday to a university with no lockers or secure student storage space. This university/course needs to start caring about education and their students.

Visited once and then refused to go anywhere else. I can't express enough the quality of the course, the teaching and the contact hours. I had absolutely no experience in my course prior to going there, but they really worked with me and invested a lot of time and patience helping me. I would still refuse to go anywhere else.

After finishing my first of three years studying at the AUB, I have progressed and improved at an incredible speed. Without the help and support given to me throughout the year, I doubt I would have been as successful anywhere else. I have had incredible opportunities and I have barely begun. I can't wait for my next year, and the outlook for my future seems bright as the AUB has links in the industry and such a fine calibre of students. It sometimes feels like I'm dreaming to be working and learning from such fantastic tutors in such a campus. The workload is huge, but the more you put in, the more you get out. The AUB is definitely the place to be for creative individuals.

I couldn't have picked a better place to go to university. The equipment available is exactly what I need to develop my skill and practice. The facilities available is fantastic with a large library, spaces to work, opportunities to meet with teaching staff and support staff always there when in need of extra help.

teachers of film production have limited expertise in their 'specialist field and what we do learn could have been read in a book or online. Their marking and feedback on work is limited, often with a single sentence of constructive criticism.

Tutors are only interested in the progress of their favourite students. There is a lot of unfairness going around and this is never addressed as everyone is constantly trying to impress. You are made to focus on areas of the subject that you don't want and feel forced in to making decisions.
