The University of the Arts London has been a leader in learning and creativity for more than 150 years, and has produced many award-winning students and staff. The University has over 19,000 full-time and part-time students from 113 countries, studying at all levels from short courses, further education and undergraduate to postgraduate and research degrees.
Our orientation for new students includes a placement test, induction and a tour of the building as well as presentations from staff. We will also give you a welcome pack that includes essential items such as stationery, a student guide, a guide to living in London and a Language Centre bag. We have a helpful team who are happy to help you with any questions you might have while you are studying with us and living in London.
We also have a Welfare Manager who can offer specialised advice and support. You can make new friends while you are here by joining our great social programme, which contains information about events and outings in the afternoons or evenings. If you have any questions about further study opportunities at the University including Foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, we can provide information about how to apply. Just ask any of the student support staff at the Language Centre who will be happy to help you.
Each of the Language Centre classrooms has a large flat-screen television or projector, DVD player and networked PC. Some of our classrooms also have interactive whiteboards. There are also iPads available for classroom use and a self-access space where students can use PCs for internet-based research, do activities, and borrow books and DVDs for language study.
UAL has a very active Students’ Union (SUARTS) and as a Language Centre student you are invited to be a part of it. SUARTS is an arts union for arts students. They have an influence on how the University is run and support a lot of the social and networking opportunities across UAL. A Society is a group of students who share common interests or beliefs, who come together to develop and share ideas and skills and who have fun whilst they’re doing it! SUARTS Societies are run by students and supported by the Students’ Union. They meet throughout the academic year and often run different events for their members. Joining one of our societies is a great way for you to meet new people from across UAL.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
