What Students Say:

"Many universities in UK now offer graphic design, but I wanted to go to an art school because I wanted to put my main focus on the creative and conceptual side of graphic design. My tutors are all international and open-minded, hardworking but laid-back, and they are just passionate about what they do – both the tutors and students. The colleges within UAL vary quite a lot in terms of the size and atmosphere so you can choose the one that you think would best suit you."
