Apply

The application process varies depending on the course you would like to study, and whether you're applying from the UK, EU or from a country outside of the EU.

Applying to UAL

The first step for all applicants is to decide on the course you would like to study. Each course page gives full details about the course content, structure and entry requirements. If you are disabled, dyslexic, or have another Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD), our Disability Service can help you through the application process at any stage.
