UAL events for Canadian students

We organise a range of events for prospective Canadian students to help you find out more about UAL and answer any questions you may have. UAL academics and staff often join these events to offer their expertise and insight.

Jess runs regular virtual Application Q&As give you the chance to get the information you need to put together your best application.

If the course you are interested in requires a portfolio, we also offer portfolio advisory opportunities. Get in touch with Jess to register your interest in receiving advice prior to submission.

You can also join one of our webinars for all international students to find out more about studying at UAL and in London.

We know that interviews can be a daunting prospect. Watch our 'Interviewing with a portfolio' video to hear advice from our academic staff and students. If the course you're applying for doesn't require a portfolio, some of our community tips in the video will still be helpful for your interview preparation. You can also download our Interview preparation guide (PDF 560KB).
