UAL International Summer School for 16 to 18 year olds Short Course

Course description

The UAL International Summer School offers students studying A level, IB or equivalent a unique opportunity to study in an art school environment. Students will create work inspired and informed by London's rich cultural and social diversity, as they engage in a series of art and design projects.

Structured in a similar way to a foundation course in art and design, you will be helped to build and create work for a portfolio for university application. Throughout the three-week programme, you will be encouraged to further progress and express your ideas through informal discussions and critiques with your tutors and fellow students. You will also have the opportunity to experience the energy and vibrancy of London including off-site visits to galleries and places of interest.

Who should attend?

The UAL International Summer School provides a unique opportunity to work alongside experienced UAL tutors and experience life at art school. Suitable for anyone aged between 16 to 18 years old, considering further studies in art and design.
