Arts SU Advice Service

Info on the UCU Strikes

We can advise on a range of issues which might affect your time at UAL. This website will give you an overview of some of the most common problems we advise on and how we can help. The Advice Service is confidential, which means we won’t tell your college you have approached us.

You can access quick advice on Academic Processes and Housing matters by following the links. 

If you're not sure where to start try our self-help questionnaire below or get in touch.
