Arts University Bournemouth (formerly The Arts University College at Bournemouth and The Arts Institute at Bournemouth) is a further and higher education university based in Poole, United Kingdom specialising in arts, performance, design, and media.
In 1964, Bournemouth and Poole College of Art was formed through the merger of Bournemouth Municipal College of Art and Poole College of Art. The name was changed to Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design in 1980, and the first new building on the present campus was opened in 1984, built at a cost of £2.3 million.
In 1998, the name was changed to The Arts Institute at Bournemouth (AIB) and in 2001 the AIB became a higher education institution. The AIB was one of only a few HEIs that focused exclusively on creative work in contemporary art, design, media and performance.
In 2009 the Arts Institute changed its name to the Arts University College at Bournemouth following the acquisition of Taught Degree Awarding Powers in 2008.
Arts University College at Bournemouth officially became Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) following approval from the Privy Council on 13 December 2012.
The Government announced in June 2012 that the qualifying threshold for full university title was to be lowered from 4,000 to 1,000 full-time higher education students, and with the AUB satisfying the criteria for full university title, permission was put forward for formal ratification from the Privy Council which has now been granted.
Students are based within one campus which is located in Poole, next to Bournemouth University and Wallisdown. The Campus houses specialist workshops and workspaces, Gallery, Museum of Plastics and Library.
The Enterprise Pavilion (eP) on the campus is a unique, independent initiative to develop, attract and retain new creative businesses in the South West.
Bournemouth Screen Academy
Due to the growing reputation, both nationally and internationally, the AIB, in partnership with Bournemouth University, successfully bid to be a Screen Academy in 2005. The film, costume and performance courses at AIB being a central component of the Screen Academy offer. These designations from Skillset were designed to recognise excellence in film and the broader screen-based media. The 7 or so institutions with Screen Academy status were able to access bursaries and draw down revenue funding (supported by the UK Film Council).
Bournemouth Skillset Media Academy
In 2007 Skillset introduced Media Academies and the AIB and BU applied successfully to become additionally a Media Academy in 2007.
In May 2010 the BA (Hons) Film Production at AUB received trailblazer accreditation, in 2011 there are only 2 undergraduate film courses in the UK with accreditation by Skillset. The AUB now operates three Skillset accredited courses, BA (Hons) Animation Production and BA (Hons) Film Production and BA (Hons) Costume with Performance Design. The AUB with Bournemouth University is committed to re applying for Skillset Media Academy.
