Here at UAL we have a Postgraduate Community initiative active across all of our six colleges.

The Postgraduate Community initiative aims to build and provide access to a diverse programme of events that target our entire postgraduate taught and research student body.

This will enable postgraduate students to gain access to events and opportunities from all disciplines to nurture collaboration, networking and knowledge sharing which will in turn provide an informed, connected and confident 'Super Generation' of arts professionals.


As part of this unique community you’ll have access to cross-disciplinary talks, exhibitions, performances, screenings, festivals and workshops.

A series of Pop-Up postgraduate common room events have been specially designed to give you a cultural and creative space to enhance your learning experience and networks. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with postgraduate students from other disciplines and industry specialists, visit artist studios, share skills, experiment and discover fresh ideas. Visit the Pop Up Common Rooms page for more details.
