The University of the Arts London (UAL) “English Plus” programmes combine English and beginner’s art & design classes, allowing students without formal training in art & design to get a taste of these interesting crafts! The only major requirement is a pre-intermediate level of English. Courses are booked in 2- and 4-week blocks, with a selection of topics in general art & design, communication and fashion, which will be taught at the Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication and London College of Fashion respectively.
