Michael, student at the University of the Arts London

London is home to the best art and design universities

London has some of the best art and design universities in the world. The University of the Arts London is Europe’s largest specialist university for art and design. London has produced some of my favourite designers – Galliano, McQueen, Giles Deacon, to name just a few. They give me a real taste of what fashion and art is like, what becoming a fashion designer entails.

London’s artistic atmosphere

I decided to study in London because of the artistic atmosphere that the city offers. London has some of my favorite museums and art galleries, such as The National Gallery, Tate Modern and the Victoria and Albert Museum. There are always new and exciting exhibitions taking place in London which provides me with many opportunities to visit and learn from them.

London’s diverse culture

London’s multicultural diversity is one of the reasons I chose to study in the city. No matter where you come from or what language you speak, you always feel welcome in London. The city encourages you to be creative and experimental. You can feel that people are more open-minded. It makes you think and do things differently.

Great job and internship opportunities

The University of the Arts London has strong connections with the fashion industry. The great benefit of studying in London is that you can get expert knowledge from your university and then put this into practice with professionals after your classes. For example, students have the opportunity to help at London Fashion Week. We also help shops and brands with the design of their window fronts at the start of the new fashion season. This kind of experience has helped me to identify and clarify my career path and I have a better understanding of how brands function within the fashion industry.

A final message for students considering to study in London

If you dream about being a professional artist, be prepared, be focused and work hard. One day, you will make your dream come true.
