Students will also be advised of other options in order to provide further security of a university place for an art & design course.

After selecting a shortlist, students on this program will be guided on how to gather and prepare well-written documents for their applications. Since the application requirements, deadlines and platforms may differ, students on this program are supported by consultants and mentors to submit top quality applications and portfolios and receive an offer from a university of their dreams.

Why study abroad?

Students aspire to study at UAL the highest ranked university for Art & Design in Europe and arguably the world. In addition, studying at UAL allows school leavers to broaden their horizons, gain world recognised degrees, study their specialisation in a common language, and make friends and connections from around the world.

But how do you start? Whilst the rewards are high, it can be challenging to build an impressive portfolio and go through the application process without help from a professional company like Elab. This program delivers the necessary advice and support from start to finish and maximises your chance of a place in a university of your dreams.

What we offer

Step 1 Introduction, Diagnostics, Personal Profile

Students are introduced to the program and using diagnostic tests and interviews, a personal profile is built to outline strengths, interests, and aspirations.

Step 2 Questionnaire, university research, report and final selections

Students are provided with Elab library documents about courses, options, universities, or different destinations and costs. Students complete a further questionnaire to facilitate the preparation of a detailed report on recommended universities and courses. From this report students will need to select their shortlist of university to begin their application process.

Step 3 Application planning and preparation

Course requirements and deadlines for the selected universities are added to student's personalised classrooms. Students are informed on how to complete documents, the deadlines, and introduced to mentors who will assist them. Students are also provided with advice and information on the necessity and availability of extracurricular activities. These depend on the course and ranking of the university. Preparation for entrance exams or language proficiency tests are planned and commenced.

Step 4 Document completion, submission & exam or interview prep

The process of gathering and finalising documents is completed. Consultants review the application before submission. Any necessary entrance exams or proficiency tests are completed, and results submitted.

Step 5 Acceptance and Relocation
