Arts SU Advice Service

Impartial | Independent | Free

We are still available to support you through this difficult time. You can read more about what UAL is doing at this time here. You can read about Arts SU's response as well as resources and advice at this time here

You can tell us what you need from UAL and Arts SU though our survey Covid-19 Response Survey 

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.

Arts SU Companion Scheme

Our companion scheme aims to pair you up with another UAL student so you can interact via video or just chat over email. This isn't a support service but it is a great chance to connect with other like minded people at this time. You can read more about the scheme here or sign up below
