It's been a sharp learning curve; I'm grateful for everything I've been taught. UAL is full of opportunities and I'm glad I have been able to take part in so many.
The facilities are amazing but they are also limited, building relationships with the technicians is essential.
The support is available but you have to ask for it. Sign up to 1:1 tutorials and speak to staff about what is going on with you.
The Students' Union is always pushing UAL to address it's flaws.
London is inspiring, buzzing and fast paced. If you are willing to explore you will never be short of research material. But it is also expensive, use what you have and what you find wisely. Student Advice Services can be really helpful where this is concerned.
To feel like part of a community and make friends outside of your course, I think clubs and societies are key. Especially as someone who lived at home and didn't meet anybody in halls.
The course is structured in such a way that enables independent learners to thrive. If you aren't an independent learner, you need to speak up and use the support that is available. It makes you take ownership of your progress.
