Who are we? UAL is a world Top 6 university for art and design according to the QS World University Rankings® and Europe’s largest specialist university for art and design. One of UAL’s key goals is to provide an inspirational environment. This strategic ambition requires the University to have a world-class physical environment and underlying infrastructure that support our students and staff in their academic ambitions and increases our engagement with our wider communities.
