The SU Advice Team launched the Companion Scheme at the start of lockdown as an initiative to keep UAL students connected, creative and collaborative throughout this difficult time.

There are now over 600+ students involved in the scheme. Alongside chatting to your partner individually as a member of the companion scheme you receive fortnightly newsletters containing fun things to do such as; online exhibitions and inspiring videos. We will also be hosting some competitions with fab prizes up for grabs.  


“I joined because I thought it might be a fun way to get to know someone from another course. What I liked the most about it was seeing who I would get matched with and if we would get along. In the end I got to know a really nice girl and the experience was fun. “
