Semester in The United Kingdom: University of the Arts London

About the Program

University of the Arts London (UAL) welcomes students from all over the world to study abroad in the arts, design, fashion, media, communication and performance, with programs lasting from three weeks to one year.

UAL graduates go on to work in and shape the creative industries worldwide. UAL is ranked sixth in the world for Art and Design in the 2018 QS World University Rankings.

The University is made up of six renowned Colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion, and Wimbledon College of Arts.

Oklahoma City University students interested in theatre—acting, design and production, and theatre and performance—should consider applying to either Central Saint Martins or Wimbledon College of Arts.
