Students with all kinds of experience take UAL short courses and the best bit is that it doesn’t matter how ‘good’ you are. Each of our courses are designed with appropriate class sizes, so tutors can help each individual improve their knowledge and get to the next level

To help you access our short courses we offer many flexible ways to study. Our experienced short course tutors are all practitioners in their own right and many of them teach on UAL’s degree programmes. Best of all, our tutors are supportive and knowledgeable, which means that you’ll learn by doing practical course work and from interaction between students and staff.

There is just something so encouraging about being in a University building designed for creative learning, while also being with new an interesting people from all over the world – it’s a real cultural fusion and meeting point for creative minds.
