In order to help students better prepare for postgraduate study at UAL, students who have identified their chosen course of study are invited to attend a workshop which is offered three times a year at the same time as the interviews for the full time courses at the university. The workshop helps students to prepare their application before they present this at interview.
A lot of the MA programs at UAL will expect students to have considered what area of research they would like to pursue as part of their studies. As well as wanting to know the specific area of research a student wishes to investigate they will also be expected to explain how they wish to conduct this research, what methods they intend to use etc
Aspects of a PG application such as these will be discussed at the workshops together with guidance on what should be included in a student’s portfolio together with an insight into the kind of work and projects students can expect to be engaged in while studying at UAL.
