Talk to our representatives

If you’re thinking about applying to UAL, our Turkish representatives (sometimes called 'agents') can help. We work with 2 representatives in Turkey - British Education Bureau and British Side. They’ll support you locally and in your language through every stage of the application process, free of charge. This includes providing specialist advice about UAL and the courses we offer, your application and portfolio and arranging interviews with our academic staff. There may be a small charge for help with visa applications and travel to the UK.
