Program Description:

UCA London

Study at a dynamic, thriving art and design institution in London: a creative capital.

University of the Arts London (UAL) is a premier arts institution, ranked #2 in the world for Art and Design (QS World Rankings 2019) and #1 in the world for Fashion (Business of Fashion Awards 2017). This makes UAL an ideal choice for coursework in fine art, graphic design, fashion, and communication. Students will benefit from UAL’s state-of-the-art facilities and technical equipment, in addition to their connections to creative industries. This is all set against the backdrop of the world-class city of London, where UAL’s central location gives students opportunities such as participating in London Fashion Week, experiencing its many galleries and theaters, and more. Students with a background in the arts and communication wanting to study these subjects abroad may find UAL to be a great fit.

  • You’ll join UAL alumni of top-class artists, designers, and performers, such as Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen, and Platon.
  • Study abroad students have access to UAL Social, planning over 2,000 events for UAL students per year, in addition to membership in UAL’s Student Union comprised of various student groups.
  • Through UAL, students may have the opportunity to participate in some of London’s most prominent events, including London Fashion Week, Frieze Art Fair, LIFT Theatre Festival, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, London Design Week, and more.
  • UAL features creativity and collaboration at the fore of its curriculum.
  • Study abroad students will interact with students from all over UAL, not just those within their program of study.
  • Take courses at Central Saint Martins (CSM), London College of Communication (LCC), or London College of Fashion (LCF).
  • Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses, through Arcadia's planned Excursions and Activities.
