Administration and welfare
Our administration team can help you with Oyster cards (London Underground and buses), course extensions, accommodation, bank letters and general guidance for living in London.
Our Welfare Officer can help you with any other issues, from registering with a doctor to personal problems.
Language Centre students have access to the wide range of exciting UAL Social Programme events. Most Social Programme activities are free, but there may be some, especially for theatre and trips outside London, which you would need to pay for. The most you could expect to pay would be £25.
The Students’ Union (SUARTS) offers a wide range of clubs and societies which Language Centre students are welcome to join. The cost of joining a club or society is around £7 a year. We also run occasional after school trips to restaurants and other places of interest in London for our students, with a Language Centre teacher.
For regular updates on social programme events:
Insurance, provided by the company Endsleigh, is included in your tuition fees*.
