What to expect
This programme is designed to allow students to experience UK student life on our BA and BSc programmes. Students will have the same coursework and schedule as a home student and should anticipate independent-style learning and a collaborative environment. Usually applicants will be either majoring or minoring in their chosen subject or have a developed portfolio in the subject area.
Integrated Study Abroad students choose a degree programme and take classes in that core subject area. This is designed to develop further specialist technical skills, with the aim that students explore, develop and expand upon their own ideas. These are essential skills required for a career in the creative industries.
The Study Abroad team at UAL can send applicants course handbooks containing detailed information on the curriculum and classes for the selected degree course. Students often find it useful to have a copy of the course handbook when they meet with their academic advisors at their home institution.
The course director at UAL will assign students a programme of classes during their first meeting in London.
All degree courses at UAL are credit rated. Students earn credit points when they successfully complete a learning unit. Each individual credit point normally equates to 10 hours of learning across 2 areas:
- taught or tutor-directed learning
- self-directed study with access to College facilities.
Assessments might include project work, logged and written assignments, and other work as appropriate.
Study Abroad students can take classes for their home institution to award external credit. 120 credits are available for each year of study and this typically breaks down into 40 credits per term. At the end of the course, we will provide a record of study listing the grades the student has achieved for each unit and their equivalent US credit value.
Students are advised to ensure their home institution will award external credit before they travel to London and enrol onto their elected Study Abroad Programme. The Study Abroad team can provide course handbooks to both the student and their advisor to demonstrate what will be studied during their time with UAL.
