About us

Chelsea College of Arts, Camberwell College of Arts and Wimbledon College of Arts are three of the six Colleges that make up the prestigious University of the Arts London.

As well as delivering high quality Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate degree programmes, our Colleges have been delivering Short Courses for over 30 years.

We are known globally for teaching short courses that are suitable for people of any age, ability and availability; our flexible approach to teaching means that people can study with us at a time that suits them. We are also able to deliver courses at three world renowned Colleges across London making full use of specialist, established facilities and catering to students located in different parts of London. Small class sizes, coupled with second to none facilities and excellent, supportive tuition means that year-on-year, we welcome more and more students into our short course alumni.

Our outstanding international reputation has enabled us to successfully deliver our short courses not only in London, but elsewhere in the world. Since October 2011, we have been teaching a highly popular portfolio of courses in the Middle East as well as offering students the opportunity to study month long courses across Dual Cities.

We are also proud to offer Portfolio courses for those considering a rewarding education in the Arts as well courses for the younger creatives among us. Please see our Portfolio Courses for expertly tailored courses for those aged 14 and over.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our short courses in the near future. Please feel free to contact us should you require any further assistance.
