Academics at University of the Arts, London – Studio Art Program
The Studio Art option (referred to as "Integrated Study Abroad" by UAL) is for a student who is likely to be an art, design, fashion, communications or performance major already with a strong background in these areas. You should be prepared for an intensive, independent study that is very subject specific alongside degree-seeking UAL students. This option is ideal for a student from a fine arts school or program that can support a portfolio of 20-25 images of their work. The Studio Art option is available for the following terms:
- Academic year (10 weeks in the fall, 20 weeks in the spring)
- Fall term (10 week term plus a mandatory 2 week pre-sessional European Art History Module)
- Spring two terms (two 10 week terms totaling 20 weeks for the entire spring)
Spring Studio Art students typically earn 20 U.S. semester credit hours (10 per term) and full year students earn 30 U.S. semester credit hours.
Check out the Semester program at the University of the Arts, London for another UAL program option.
