Interviews in Malaysia

If you have applied through one of our local representatives, you can have a face-to-face interview in Malaysia with one of our travelling academic staff. Students who apply directly to one of our Colleges, and not via BCIC, are interviewed in London or by telephone from London. For more information email Saintfield at or MABECS at

What to expect

  • Further education and undergraduate applications:
    If you are successful in the interview you will receive an offer on the spot. If the interviewer cannot offer you a place on your first choice course, they will advise you on other suitable courses across UAL's six Colleges or recommend ways you can improve your work so that you can reapply at a later date.
  • Postgraduate applications:
    For some courses our interviewers can make offers on the spot; for other courses they will make a recommendation to the College you are applying to.

Please note, if you apply directly to one of our Colleges and not through our representative, you will be interviewed in London or by telephone by your chosen College. In these interviews, you can only be offered a place at the College you have applied to.
