Careers and Employability empowers UAL students and graduates to make a living doing what they love and strives to support those underrepresented in the creative industries.

We believe that everyone should be able to achieve their creative ambitions, regardless of their background or circumstance. Working collaboratively across UAL courses, we enhance students’ employability and creative attributes through experiential learning and access to industry.

We provide:

Support is free and accessible to all UAL students and graduates (up to 5 years after graduation).

Careers and Employability is committed to teaching, learning and assessment that enhances and recognises our students' employability, individuality, and entrepreneurship. We bridge disciplines and promote cross-college collaboration to contribute toward a vision for enterprise and employability across the University.
