I go to Chelsea and love love love it here. All of my other UAL friends that go to other uni's and visited have commented on how lovely the whole place is. It's so homey and comfortable and welcoming in a lot of ways. It being next to the Tate and a 20 minute walk from southbank is also a massive +. UAL as an entity is good also; the scale of it means that it's got really good facilities between all the campuses. using CSM library is a dream!

This uni is a joke. I can't wait to leave it. There are two goods tutors on my course, others are a complete joke. Course requirements are usually very unclear, marking system is really confusing. Lectures are a total joke, they expect you to do everything on your own, no supervision whatsoever. Avoid by all means.

First, dealing with the campus administration is like dealing with the bureaucracy of the third world country. They just do not care, except for going to lunch on time and going home. Second, in the fine arts program, they say their encourage creativity and innovation, but only if it fits within their undefined criteria. But if you proceed and garner praise, they are quick to take credit. This is what happens when your instructors teach art, but do not practice art (that that can, do; those that can not, teach). And lastly, your fellow students are for the most part, asses. A lot of them are just passing time and taking up space at what they hope is a party school. And they are snobs. They is some racial discrimination, and there is a lot of class discrimination.

Briefly.. I am from Amman, Jordan. When I decided to apply for the UAL, they welcomed and treated me in a good way with quick responses to my e-mail and I applied and I paid the tuition for a short course for the summer course of 2017, they sent me the confirmation. After I got the confirmation and all the papers from the university I applied for the UK embassy to get the Visa but its been rejected TWICE. The UK Embassy told me that they phoned the University to check about the confirmation and that I applied and paid the tuition but the UAL reply was: No, he is not a student at our university. The time passed and I couldn't apply again because the course would start in few days as the Visa takes from 2 to 3 weeks to be done. Anyways, I sent the UAL an email to get a refund because of the rejected Visas and to get my money back, their emails responses were so slow and they rejected to refund me as I sent them all the papers and the proofs that I applied TWICE.

Didn't enjoy my time here and ended up withdrawing. It was a while back now, went to Wimbledon, apart from being on the wrong course, it was poorly structured, teachers were never in and nobody hardly turned up, snobby lazy, environment. Only got thing was admin support staff and the ual society. Worst time ever

The worst thing about my uni is how little information is really easily accessible. I am second year and have no idea how to access any support or facilities despite this last year. When I ask people, everyone seems very unorganised and unprofessional. Good university status but honestly, I feel I get taught to a far less extent to most other unis.

brilliant, modern building with just about all the facilities you could ask for. Lots of energy and creativity and there's always something going on. The university feels quite pretentious.
