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.

University of the Arts London provides opportunities to study alongside UAL undergraduate students for 1, 2 or 3 terms on our Integrated Study Abroad programme. Students can also study alongside other study abroad students on one of our 14-week bespoke Semester Study Abroad tailored for Study Abroad students. If a term or semester is not an option, UAL’s Summer Study Abroad programmes allow students to take a 3, 5, or 8-week course over the summer. These are all highly focused and intensive courses.
