Study Abroad

UAL welcomes students from all over the world to programmes in the arts, design, fashion, media, communication and performance

Chelsea College of Arts' neo-Baroque exterior hides a multicultural mix of students and staff, a world renowned art and design library and cutting-edge facilities. With just over 1,400 students, its small size and supportive atmosphere make it the ideal location for studying art and design abroad.

Outside, Chelsea has London's largest open air gallery, which hosts all sorts of events from film screenings to large scale installations, with international artists exhibiting alongside current students. Chelsea students also enjoy views over the river Thames, and a special relationship with their next door neighbour, Tate Britain.
