Our academic staff travel to Iceland every year to attend exhibitions, hold workshops and give presentations at schools and colleges. These events give you an opportunity to meet us, find out about studying at UAL and discuss your application in person.

Upcoming events:

UAL Portfolio Workshop - Portfolio Workshops provide you with practical advice on how to build or further develop a strong creative portfolio. The session is led by an academic from the university who will also be able to give you guidance on which courses will help you achieve your creative goals and future career aspirations.

You are welcome to bring current work for informal feedback and advice after the workshop, but it's also a chance for you to find out about the application process more generally, so don't worry if you haven't started anything yet!
