Exceptional Support Fund
UAL has confirmed financial support for students experiencing hardship as a result of conflict and/or economic upheaval. We have launched the UAL Exceptional Support Fund which provides support towards tuition fee and living expenses for offer-holders to apply.
We understand that you may be personally affected by conflict in your country, and we want to do everything possible to support you with your studies at UAL. As a community, UAL is a meeting point for students from every nation, studying peacefully together.
