    • Political scene

      There's a lot of awareness about human rights and other concerns, but I wouldn't say we're actively tackling them.

      Accommodation

      I stayed in private accommodation for my first year but I know that the Costume Store is pretty popular as most of my classmates live there! It's pretty nice, located near Shepherd's bush but in my opinion, it is overpriced and as compared to other universities who have their accommodation centrally located and affordable for students, UAL lacks this! However, the good thing is people are generally friendly so it's quite easy to go around and make friends, whether it's in your halls or when youre renting out an apartment!

    • Everyday expenses

      Living and studying in London is very expensive! You need to have a part time job in addition to student loan and parental help.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
