France Alumni Group

The French alumni group is currently based in Paris, but is open to all UAL former students living in France. The group provides the perfect platform for networking, sharing experiences and keeping in touch with the latest news from UAL.

The group regularly meets for picnics and informal drinks, as well as actively organising exhibitions of alumni work.

Astrid Sarkissian (CSM, BA (Hons) Performance Design and Practice):

"When I came back to Paris I wanted to keep in touch with British industries. I currently work with the UK Fashion and Textile Export during Paris Fashion week, almost 300 UK Fashion and Textile firms are involved with us. It is very important to keep this link between the UK and France and this is why I created an alumni group based in Paris to support graduates in France who have similar creative and career goals."
