International Schools

If you are a non-EU student at an international school in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, our official representative for international schools can help you with your application.

If you are studying at an international school in any other region, please contact the local Representative in your country or the International Office at your chosen College. If you are an EU national, please visit our Study at UAL pages.

We work closely with Maria Brawand to offer you free support through every stage of the application process. Services include:

  • Providing information about UAL and its six Colleges.
  • Specialist advice about UAL's courses and help with choosing the right programme for you.
  • Advice on preparing your application and portfolio.
  • Arranging an interview in your area with one of our academic staff.
  • Help with visa applications and travel to the UK (there may be a small charge for these services).

Events in your country

Our academic staff and representative Maria Brawand regularly attend exhibitions, deliver workshops and give presentations at international schools across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. These events give international students an opportunity to meet us in person, find out about studying at UAL, learn about preparing a portfolio, and discuss your application.


If you have applied through our representative Maria Brawand, you can usually be interviewed in your country of residence by one of our travelling academic staff. For more information email Maria Brawand at:

Please note, if you apply directly to one of our Colleges and not through our representative, you will be interviewed in London or by telephone by your chosen College. In these interviews, you can only be offered a place at the College you have applied to.

What to expect

Further education and undergraduate applications: 

If you are successful in the interview you will receive an offer on the spot. If the interviewer cannot offer you a place on your first choice course, they will advise you on other suitable courses across UAL's six Colleges or recommend ways you can improve your work so that you can reapply at a later date.

Postgraduate applications: 

For some courses our interviewers can make offers on the spot, for other courses they will make a recommendation to the College you are applying for.
