Careers and Employability

Careers and Employability empowers UAL students and graduates to make a living doing what they love.

We believe that everyone should be able to achieve their creative ambitions, regardless of their background or circumstance. Working collaboratively with UAL courses, we enhance students’ employability and creative attributes through experiential learning and access to industry.

We enable students to achieve their goals by being responsive to individual pathways and ways of learning. From the moment students arrive, they can access: one-to-one advice, job opportunities, paid internships, mentoring, funding, student-led initiatives, and opportunities to showcase and exhibit work.

Support is free and accessible to all our students.
