Careers and Employability empowers UAL students and graduates to make a living doing what they love.

We believe that everyone should be able to achieve their creative ambitions, regardless of their background or circumstance. Working collaboratively with UAL courses, we enhance students’ employability and creative attributes through experiential learning and access to industry.

We enable students to achieve their goals by being responsive to individual pathways and ways of learning. From the moment students arrive, they can access:

  • one-to-one advice
  • job opportunities and paid internships
  • mentoring
  • funding
  • student-led initiatives
  • and opportunities to showcase and exhibit work

Support is free and accessible to all of our students.

Your future helps shape our future

Careers and employability are committed to helping you to find a living doing what you love. Its really important to us to find out how you are getting on, so we will be getting back in touch about 15 months after you have graduated to conduct the “Graduate Outcomes Survey”.

The information you share with us will help us to understand what all our graduates are doing which in turn will inform how we design careers support for the next generation of UAL graduates. Please help us and future graduates by taking a few minutes to respond.
