Your safety is our first priority.

Unsuccessful applications

If you didn't get a place, we know you will be very disappointed. If your application is unsuccessful, you are welcome to apply to us again in the future.

Each application is carefully considered by our academic team. With so many excellent applicants to choose from, it is often a very difficult decision to let anyone know their application has been unsuccessful.

Requesting feedback after interview

Because our courses receive a high number of applications, we can’t provide feedback to everyone who is unsuccessful.

You will only receive feedback if your application is unsuccessful after you’ve had an interview.

We are only able to provide feedback to:

  • you directly
  • someone you have told us in writing can hear the feedback on your behalf.

If your application is unsuccessful after you’ve had an interview and you’d like to request feedback, use your UAL Portal:

  1. Click the ‘Contact us’ button next to the relevant course.
  2. Select the ‘Application progress’ category.
  3. Select the ‘Decision feedback’ sub-category.

We’ll send your feedback as soon as possible, although you may have to wait during busy periods.
