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.
