Clearing

You may wish to go into clearing, where universities advertise the available places they have on different courses. The Uni Guide offer good advice at this link:

Clearing 2021: how to make your university course decision – The Uni Guide


Certificates

UAL have not yet printed certificates due to potential student appeals. Certificates will be printed and despatched in September 2021. Appeals will be handled by the Curriculum Managers.

The academy has many industry links which our students get to make the most out of throughout their time here. They have many visits from and to employers in their first year, which then continues in their second year along with a meaningful industry work placement.

We are actively working towards achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks.

POLICYPLAN

We welcome any prospective Partners/Employers that would like to work with us. We are always looking for ways to expand our links for students to have meaningful encounters with employers and employees within the creative industries.

We would also like to welcome any universities or other higher educational institutions to work with us and our students – helping to give them the best chance into higher education.
