Prepare to share your work with the world.

UAL's global platform Showcase is a space for you to share your work and make connections with future employers and creative collaborators.

Final year students from all Colleges and levels of study can upload projects in their final term. We strongly advise that you upload your work as soon as possible to ensure that it's ready for launch. The earlier you submit, the sooner teams can review your submission.

Here you will find everything you need to know about uploading your project, including guides on how to promote and sell your work.

Sign up to Portfolio to create your profile and get started.

Please read the UAL Showcase terms and conditions before uploading your work.
