There are over 100 taught programmes at postgraduate level across UAL’s six colleges, which are designed with a strong theoretical and practise-based structure. Tutors deliver a rigorous curriculum, developed in collaboration with leading industry experts, and encourage students to push their creative boundaries to discover different methods of working and explore new ideas and themes.
Research and theory complement the practical work involved in each course, and postgraduate student benefit from access to the university’s industry-standard workshops and equipment which ensure that they leave the course with the skills and abilities needed for success in their future careers. While at UAL, there are plenty of opportunities for taught students to expand their creative network, through conversations with guest lecturers and professional tutors, who can offer contacts for internships and industry placement work.
UAL conducts groundbreaking creative research work, with a firm focus on innovation and experimentation. Postgraduate applicants have many opportunities to complete both theory and practice-based research programmes, which lead to MPhil or PhD qualifications. These are available in any subject area, and qualified supervision by the university is also available.
Students can study a PhD as a distant learner, but will need to be in London for a minimum of three weeks per year during their studies. There are currently over 250 research students at the university, in a range of creative subjects, from photography to fine art.
Flexible study options are available on many postgraduate taught courses. This includes part-time and distance learning, which allows the option to organise a Master’s level degree course around existing work or personal commitments. It also makes UAL’s high-quality curriculum available to students all over the world and expands the university’s creative community. The Executive MBA (Fashion) at the London College of Fashion, for example, offers the option of distance learning.
A small number of courses also offer a ‘fast track’ study route, where the course is completed in one go. Students enrolled on practical degree courses are advised to attend university, since the facilities are extremely useful, and there are benefits to working in a collaborative environment.
