For the first time in history, students can explore the work of UAL's graduates in one curated space. They can discover what it’s like to study on a course at the university and see what students achieve throughout their time there.
Students of University of the Arts London on Postgraduate Search say:
“So far it has been great. It was a life goal of mine to come here and both the university and the city haven’t disappointed. I feel challenged and I feel like I am growing in my field and as a person.”
“Amazing – the best 15 months of my life. I loved UAL and all its support and facilities. My course was incredible, life-changing and I really found myself through it.”
“I loved Central Saint Martins on my first sight and I am happy that I could live with it for two years. I love the fountains. I love the coal drops yard. I love the Friday markets. I love the platform bar. I love the people.”
UAL is home to Europe’s largest postgraduate arts and design community. It specialises in a range of creative masters and research degrees.
Regular pop-up events are specially designed for students to expand their network and learn new skills. These are organised by the initiative Postgraduate Community.
The Community is for both research and taught postgraduate students across all subjects. It encourages them to collaborate, network and share knowledge with each other. This helps create a connected and confident generation of arts professionals. Events include talks, exhibitions, performances, screenings, workshops and festivals.
Students also have their own common room events. They can talk to other postgraduates from different courses, as well as industry specialists.
The university also provides funding to help postgraduates organise academic and cultural events.
