Welcome to the Language Centre at University of the Arts London (UAL), where you can choose from a variety of English language courses. We are located in the UAL main building in central London. You can use all of the University facilities,including libraries, bars, galleries, cafeterias and shops. You can also join a society if you wish—a great way to make friends and mix with other UAL students. The University has over 19,000 full-time and part-time students from 113 countries, studying at all levels from short courses, further education and undergraduate to postgraduate and research degrees.
We are very proud of our experienced and highly-qualified teachers who specialise in language teaching in an art and design context. Many of the staff hold Masters’ degrees in English Language Teaching and Linguistics and have additional qualifications in a range of academic subjects including the creative arts. Our orientation for new students includes a placement test, induction and a tour of the building as well as presentations from staff. We will also give you a welcome pack that includes essential items such as stationery, a student guide, a guide to living in London and a Language Centre bag.
