Welcome to the Big Refresh – an activities week during 3 – 7 February 2020. Activities are taking place across all Colleges, aside from LCF, where an activities week took place in October. This is your chance to find out more about your College and UAL, complete work for your course, or go to some of the fun and wellbeing events we’ve arranged for you. You should check your timetable to see see when you can attend some of the great events we've arranged.

Whether you’re in your first, second or third year of study we have something for you. From services, societies or communities you haven’t yet discovered, to workshops and talks to help you think about how to tackle that dissertation or the next steps in your career.

The Big Refresh

Activities will include creative workshops, 'give it a go' sport sessions, cookery demonstrations, Academic Support workshops, screenings, exhibitions, talks and events hosted at Colleges, in Halls and with some of our local partners.

While some of the Big Refresh events will be open to all UAL students, in most cases you'll need to attend events at your own College. Events with limited capacity may need to be pre-booked, but most will be open on a drop-in or first-come-first-served basis. Any students with accessibility needs will be supported.

There will also be a full schedule of events put on by Arts SU, UAL Social Programme, as well as other services and departments.

To see what's on at your College, take a look at the full schedules below.

Creative Futures

Open to all UAL students, Creative Futures will also be putting on events during 3 – 7 February. This is an inspiring week of industry-led talks, empowering workshops, jobs fair, one-to-one advice, free professional headshots and networking opportunities. You'll be given the skills, knowledge and motivation to fulfil your ambitions and to shape the future you want in the creative industries.
