University of the Arts London (UAL)

University of the Arts London is a collegiate university comprising 6 internationally renowned colleges of art, design, communications, fashion and the performing arts, and as such is the largest provider of higher level education in the arts in Europe. All the colleges are located within London and each college is at the heart of their respective communities. Drawing on and contributing to the local culture, they foster closely-knit and welcoming environments in which to study, supported by all the resources of the larger University and the wider arts community. The University’s 1,228 teaching staff; as active professional artists, practitioners, designers, critics and theorists, lead the way on creative and experimental practice alongside historical and theoretical analysis. The combination of a varied student group, cutting-edge research and highly-experienced staff creates a unique, multifaceted learning experience for students at the University.

Central Saint Martins

Central Saint Martins large, purpose-built campus is an exiting and energetic creative factory, bringing together students from the widest range of disciplines under one roof. Independent, risk-taking students who embrace the challenge of self direction thrive here. Student population: 4,883

Programs at UAL

The Colleges offer the University’s 20,000 students a diverse range of courses, with some of the colleges offering a different focus or area of study within the same discipline. As these courses often have the same course title across the colleges and as each college has its own personality, we encourage students to read carefully both the course descriptions and the descriptions of each college, before making a careful choice of which to apply for.

There are two main options for study abroad in London at UAL as follows:

Integrated Programs

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS 40 UAL credits per term (12 semester credits)

Students enroll directly alongside local undergraduate students who are full-time, degree-seeking students. Students are required to work more independently than they may be accustomed to at their home institution. While teaching is not conducted in a traditional U.S. lecture-based class setting, students receive guidance from faculty and are helped to identify the resources they need to reach course goals. Course content is delivered in a variety of ways, including individual and group tutorials, projects, seminars, lectures, and museum, gallery and studio visits.

Integrated “Plus” Program – For Studio Art Majors

Central Saint Martins also offers an Integrated “Plus” model, which gives study abroad students the ability to enroll in a Studio Art track with local students, while also receiving additional support and instruction, participating in special projects, and experiencing customized visits aimed at helping these students get the most out of their integrated experience.

Semester Study Abroad Programs

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS 12 – 16 U.S. credits per semester.

The Free Elective Studies Program (FESP) at Central Saint Martins is entirely designed for the study abroad student. Courses are taught entirely with American and international students in the American university style (continuous assessment, collaborative classes, a la carte course choices).

TRANSCRIPTS

Students receive an official transcript from the University of the Arts London upon completion of the program. Students are assessed on the basis of project work, preparatory materials, the log and written assignments.
