Post-Grad Community’s established and varied programme of events take place adjacent to your course and seek to enrich your student experience through skill shares, networking, collaboration and new communities of practice.
In light of the recent pandemic, this academic year, we are taking our activity online. Despite social distancing rules, we are committed to maintaining a sense of community, ensuring that we remain the diverse, welcoming, and affirming community that make us part of UAL.
Ways you can connect with postgraduates and alumni
A newsletter is sent to all postgraduate students' UAL emails every Friday lunch time (GMT). Here you will find open calls to collaborate, student news, University news, exclusive opportunities and events both at UAL and further afield. Find out how to submit an item for the newsletter (PDF).
A thriving online magazine written by postgrads! Share your projects, research, documentaries and reviews. All stories are published on the UAL website via the Post-Grad stories pages, shared across our social media platforms, in the newsletter and beyond. Read the guide on how to submit an article (PDF).
We have a growing number of issue-specific, cross-disciplinary interest groups led by postgraduate students and academics. These groups connect creatives with shared research/practice interests across different specialisms and subject areas. Find out how to set up your own Post-Grad Interest Group (PDF).
