How UAL Online Courses Work

All online courses have the benefit to be a part of the University of the Arts London Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and have been developed specifically for the teaching and learning of Art and Design practices, online.

This Virtual Learning Environment uses the latest technologies to provide the participants direct access to lessons, assignments, portfolio space and live classes from most devices enabled to access the internet, including smartphones and tablets.

UAL Study Abroad Online courses are a mix of live classes and self-study time. Students will be required to attend live classes at a given time every week and work on the weekly assignment between classes.

Every week, the tutor and student will meet in the virtual classroom and participate as a class, which is set at a recurrent day and time (set in the United Kingdom, times GMT or BST and dates are subject to UK national holidays).

For convenience, the classes and course content are archived and made available for review for up to three months after the course finishes. The platform also enables each participant to manage their own content, including the submission of their work for assessment by the tutor.
