AUBSU is the Students’ Union at Arts University Bournemouth. During their time at university, the majority of students engage with AUBSU, whether that’s by joining us at our Freshers’ Fair, signing up to a club or society, volunteering with us, or attending one of our events. Our students are as creative and diverse as their courses, and are interested in a wide range of opportunities, and you can communicate your message to them via a variety of on-campus or online advertising opportunities. Want to work with us? Great! We’ve composed this handy guide to outline our current prices. Feel free to contact us, we may even be able to design a custom marketing package for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or queries. We’re always excited to bring new opportunities to our students.
