About the scheme

Our scheme promotes the recruitment of talented, creative students from high quality further education institutions to UAL courses.

Working closely with colleagues in our partner institutions, we provide enhanced pre-application support, exclusive events and opportunities to share best-practice and collaborate.

Our primary objective is to promote progression within the arts, supporting the next generation of students to succeed.

What do we offer through the UAL School and College Network (USCN)?


If your students are passionate about a specific subject area, a specialist lecturer can visit your institution or deliver a workshop at UAL to provide information and guidance on the content of relevant courses at UAL, how to prepare a portfolio, and provide information about career opportunities in their field.


We visit schools and colleges around the UK to deliver presentations to both students and academic staff covering topics such as:

  • Selecting a university
  • Application process at UAL
  • The UAL structure
  • Our courses
  • University life
  • Accommodation
  • Finance


Staff and students from our partner colleges are invited into UAL to increase their knowledge about UAL and the different subject pathways.

Each year we hold events such as:

  • Tutor information days
  • Degree show tours
  • Subject information sessions
  • Student visits to see the college sites, meet our students and find out more about our range of courses

In addition to this UAL also offer:

  • Attendance at careers/HE fairs across the UK
  • Subject based workshops
  • Portfolio advisory sessions
  • Invitations to exclusive staff events at UAL
  • Access to a termly newsletter
