SUARTS Creative Ambassador programme is an opportunity for current University of the Arts London students to gain skills and experience with Made in the Arts London and SUARTS Creative Opportunities. This programme was developed as an opportunity for students who do not have work to showcase or sell via MiAL and SUARTS to get involved in a different way.
We welcome students from all UAL courses and disciplines, and endeavor to tailor the experience of being a Creative Ambassador to each individual depending on specific areas of interest.
Creative Ambassadors learn about promoting and selling artwork as well as gaining experience in working within an arts organisation and as part of a creative team. You will have access to professional development opportunities, the chance to network and meet new people, and to build essential skills needed for future roles within the arts.

The beginning is looming, but don’t let nerves spoil your excitement. Whilst every experience is different, here’s one account of a first day studying at MA level at LCC.
The first weeks are always nerve wracking. For me, I’d never studied at this level before, and it was my first proper experience of London. But nerves are good, nerves are just another form of excitement.
First I had to get the official enrolment out of the way. Which went from being painless, to being a pain, to being painless again. I had some issues with the payments being split in different ways which made it complicated to explain. After a few tries, I had my student card in hand and was on my way home again.Comments

Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student film festival, is coming to University of the Arts London this autumn!
CMF, a premier outlet for the next generation of filmmakers, began in 2001 when four students at Emory University provided fellow students with everything they needed — including camcorders and Apple laptops — to make movies in one week. Since then, more than 500,000 students at colleges and universities globally have received all the necessary technology and training to tell their stories on the big screen through film. CMF is free to students thanks to corporate partners and schools. You can find more information online.
Let us tell you a bit more about this amazing competition…
