UAL’s Careers and Employability team can support you to make a living doing what you love.

Support is free and accessible to all UAL students. We believe that everyone should be able to achieve their creative ambitions, regardless of their background or circumstances.

Most opportunities are open to all, but some might be limited to specific groups - we'll make it clear when this is the case.

Online support

Get tailored help with your job search, CV, identifying a career path and interview preparation. You can email us with any your questions at careers-support@arts.ac.uk
