terminology

At London South Bank University, classes or courses are called “modules.” An undergraduate degree program is called a “course.” Modules are organized by levels. Level 4 is sophomore, Level 5 is junior, and Level 6 is senior. Please note that Level 6 modules are academically challenging and are recommended only for junior and senior students who have already covered the topic in depth.

Most modules at LSBU are worth 20 CATS, which is equivalent to 4 semester credits. (5 CATS = 1 U.S. semester credit.) Some modules are worth 15 CATS (3 semester credits). We do not recommend you enroll in a module worth only 10 CATS, as this is only 2 semester credits.

COURSE OFFERINGS

All ASA students will take one required module, London: City of Change (20 CATS / 4 semester credits), plus 3 additional modules of your choosing. Students attending the full academic year need only take London: City of Change during the Fall semester.  

All students MUST have a total of 8 modules approved by their home institution, including the mandatory module London: A City of Change.  This will give you back-ups in case of changes in course availability or scheduling conflicts. In order to pre-register for classes (this happens after you’re accepted), you will need to list a total of 8 modules that have been approved for credit by your home institution.

Final Transcript: Issued by University of the Arts London.

program description

The Integrated Programme at University of the Arts London allows ASA students to take classes alongside British students. Each term (Fall or Spring) is 10 weeks long, during which students will earn 12-13 semester credits. Through the Integrated Programme, you will take all of your classes within one subject area – usually your major – allowing you to delve deep into your area of specialization.

Students may enroll in the Integrated Programme at five of the UAL colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins (CSM), Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication (LCC), or Wimbledon College of Arts. Each college offers different subject areas and has a unique approach to learning. Since there are so many available options at UAL and some colleges offer similar courses, ASA is happy to work with you one-on-one to determine which UAL college is the best fit for you!

TERMINOLOGY

Here is a quick glossary of the terminology used at UK universities. It will help you greatly in understanding the rest of the information given here!

UK                                U.S.
Course                   =    Degree / Degree Area / Major
Unit/Module       =    Class/course
Course Leader/Director =    Department Head/Chair; this is the person who will ultimately determine your acceptance into a course. Your Course Director will also make a recommendation that you enter either Year 1 or Year 2, based on the previous classes you have taken and your portfolio (if required).

  • Year 1 = First year of a course; a sophomore study abroad student may enter at Year 1, depending on previous coursework

  • Year 2 = Second year of a course; a sophomore or junior study abroad student may enter at Year 1, depending on previous coursework

  • Year 3 = Third and last year of a course; study abroad students are not allowed to enter at Year 3 since degree-seeking students are working on dissertations or final projects

What is the application process like?

After one-on-one advising with an ASA representative, students will decide on 1 college and 3 possible “courses” (degree areas/majors) within that college that they want to apply for. Students will be asked to list these 3 courses in order of preference on their application. For example, if you are Communications major, you might apply to these 3 courses at London College of Communications (LCC): Public Relations, Media Communications, and Media & Cultural Studies. Please note, it is not possible to take units across multiple courses. All of your units will be taken within one course, at one college. We ask that students please consult with ASA before going through the course approval process at your home institution, so that we can provide you with the appropriate unit (course) descriptions.

Most applicants must submit a portfolio of their work, but this depends on which Course you are applying for. While Art and Design students must always submit a portfolio, it may not be required for students in Courses such as Journalism or Communications. Please check with ASA to find out whether a portfolio will be required.

The UAL Admissions staff will determine which Course you are accepted to, based on your past coursework, goals, and portfolio (if required).

What classes will I take?

Through the Integrated Programme, you will take a set curriculum of classes, all within your major or area of specialization. It is not a “free elective” program where you can select various subject areas to study.

Each course (degree) at UAL is typically 3 years. Each year of a course has a fixed curriculum of 3-5 units (courses) that are taken for the duration of that academic year. Study Abroad students are allowed to take units within Year 1 and 2. For example, degree-seeking students in Year 1 of the Public Relations course at LCC would take the same 4 units for the entire academic year; they will then take a different set of units for the Year 2 academic year and another set of units for the Year 3 academic year (mostly dissertation/final projects). On the Integrated Programme, ASA students will take exactly the same units as the Year 1 or Year 2 degree-seeking students; hence, they are fully integrated. (Study abroad students may not take Year 3 units.) To continue with the same example, a sophomore year ASA student who has been accepted to the Public Relations course at LCC will take either Year 1 or Year 2 units (depending on the recommendation of the Public Relations Course Director). To be clear, once again, she will take ONLY those units listed under Year 1 or Year 2 (whichever she is assigned to). Students may not take units from other courses or colleges, other than the one they are accepted to.

The majority of your coursework will be done independently, but you’ll have guidance from your instructor and attend lectures as well. This program is ideal for students who are independent learners, as coursework tends to be more project-based than lecture-based. While this may sound intimidating, past students have found it to be an extraordinarily exciting learning experience, as you will be encouraged to develop your own projects and explore your own creative process. Most students find they have more space and freedom to create than they have ever experienced before.This type of learning will help you develop specialist and detailed technical skills that go deeper and further within your chosen subject area.

The total number of credits earned is approximately 12-13 U.S. credits (40 UAL credits). Individual units may be worth anywhere from 5-20 UAL credits (1.5 – 6 semester credits). Please contact ASA for unit descriptions so that you can begin the approval process at your home institution.

Below you can see which units (classes) are offered within the following courses (degrees). Once again, you cannot mix and match units from different courses.

Only Year 1 and Year 2 units are open to study abroad students.

LONDON COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION (LCC)

WIMBLEDON COLLEGE OF ARTS

FAQ

Why am I not allowed to take classes in different subject areas?

At the heart of University of the Art London’s learning philosophy is that students are given the space and creative freedom to explore their own ideas and professional practice. You will take classes (that are assigned to you) in just one subject area, in order to fully develop specialist and detailed technical skills that go deeper and further within that chosen subject area. This, in turn, encourages independent research, creativity and skill building – all of which are required for a career in professional artistic practice and the creative industries.

What classes will I take? How do I select and sign up for them?

During the advising and application process with ASA, we will provide you with unit (course) descriptions so that you can begin the approval process with your home institution. When you are accepted by UAL, you will be assigned a set curriculum of units (classes) by your UAL Course Director, and at that point you should let your home institution which units you will actually take. Finally, your timetable (class schedule) will be confirmed after you arrive in London. At the UAL Welcome Day for Study Abroad students, you will be given an appointment to meet with your Course Director. At this meeting, you will receive the complete details, such as your timetable and a tour of your college!

How can I ensure transfer of credits back to my U.S. home institution?

Above is a list of the UAL courses (degrees) in which study abroad students may enroll. Please click on the link of the course you are interested in, and then click ‘Course Details’ to view the units (classes) offered within that course. ASA can provide you with detailed unit descriptions to give to your home institution. Please remember that study abroad students may only take Year 1 or Year 2 units.

Isn’t it quite restrictive for students not to be able to choose their classes?

While it might sound restrictive, you will actually have more freedom within your programme than you are probably used to. All of the students in your year group will attend the same classes, but you will be expected to interpret project briefs differently and generate your own ideas on how to respond to them. You will be expected to develop, explore and build your own ideas and creative thought processes and will have the freedom to manage and direct your work according to your own thought processes and schedule. While this can sound intimidating, it doesn’t take long for Study Abroad students to find their feet and immerse themselves in the new learning environment. Lots of support will be available to you, and you should never feel awkward about asking your course tutors (and others within the University) for extra support or assistance in navigating the new learning system.

Semester students will choose 2 additional modules on top of London: City of Change. Semester students can view module offerings for their additional two classes here.

All decisions regarding transfer of credit are made by the student’s home institution. 

Your internship hours will be scheduled around your module(s). Internship students can expect to be busy, especially during the summer session, as interns must complete 120 working hours in addition to your classes.

Access a PDF of the LSBU Internship Program Application Checklist.

Applicants should also be aware that:

  • You may be asked to edit your cover letter and/or résumé.

  • If you are applying to a position related to art, design, advertising, etc., you may be asked to provide a portfolio of your work. If you are interested in interning within one of these fields, please contact ASA prior to submitting your application. 

  • You are required to obtain a Tier 4 Student Visa to participate in the program. Applicants are responsible for completing the application process successfully and for payment of additional application fees. Please see the Tier 4 Student Visa section below to read the requirements for a U.K. Tier 4 Student Visa.

  • Any request made by the LSBU Internship Coordinator for additional information is intended to help your chances of receiving a successful placement, so it is your responsibility as the applicant to stay in touch during the application process, and make yourself available should additional information be required from you.

Internship program application deadlines are strict. This is due to the time LSBU needs to place you in an internship, as well as the time you’ll need to obtain your Tier 4 (General) Student Visa.

AFTER YOU APPLY

Following the completion of your ASA Program Application, with all the necessary documents, your application is submitted to London South Bank University. LSBU is responsible for all admissions decisions to the internship program. You will typically be notified of their admissions decision 1-2 weeks after you complete your application. 

If you are accepted by LSBU, they will formalize your acceptance by sending a Certificate of Unconditional Acceptance. When this document is received, you will owe the program down payment to ASA. This down payment is made to LSBU in order to begin your Tier 4 Student Visa application process and receive your Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). Your CAS is an identification number that will provide U.K. Visas and Immigration with much of the information they require about you in order to issue a Tier 4 Student Visa, such as: your program/institution enrollment status, accommodation fee payments (paid using your down payment), and more. It typically takes 2-3 weeks to receive your CAS after you submit your down payment to ASA.

During the CAS processing time, you will work on gathering your Tier 4 Student Visa application documents. Once your CAS arrives, you can apply for your visa.

Internship Placement Process

Once you receive your CAS, you will move into the internship placement process. ASA will not be copied on communication regarding your internship. Communications will take place with LSBU and Anglo Education as you complete the interview and placement process. Applicants are responsible for checking emails (as well as spam folders) and being responsive throughout the placement process. 

Applicants will Skype with LSBU’s Internship Coordinator, which will allow the coordinator to learn more about you and what you’re looking for in your internship. In most cases, applicants will then complete another, more formal Skype interview with the company interested in hiring you. It’s extremely important to make yourself available for these interviews. The placement process can be lengthy, and it’s not abnormal for applicants to be notified of their placements just days before their departure to London. It is your responsibility to communicate with LSBU and the Internship Coordinator with any questions you have about the status of your placement.

When you are offered a position, the internship will be customized for you and you are obligated to accept it. You will not be given multiple positions or employers to choose from. This is why applicants’ flexibility is imperative. When you are offered a position, you will be sent a formal offer contract for you to sign. That document will include important information about the company, address, and work hours.

What to Expect from the Internship Program

Internships last the entire length of your program. To receive credit for your internship, you are required to complete 120 work hours, as well as other tasks as assigned. This can make for a busy schedule when factored in tandem with coursework. Your internship must be a priority. You are not permitted to miss internship hours due to travel plans or visitors. You may also be expected to work during certain LSBU vacations or holidays when school may be closed. If you are not present for all of your work hours or do not fulfill the academic requirements of the internship (reports, etc.), it can affect your visa status and you risk being dismissed from the program.

Upon your arrival in London, you will participate in LSBU’s orientation program. This will help prepare you for your internship experience and understand what will be expected of you throughout the term of your internship, as well as how to be successful! Interning is a great opportunity to gain work experience and network contacts, as well as apply what you’ve learned in prior class(es).

Example Internship Placements

The list below is meant to give you a general idea of the internship(s) in which students have been placed in in the past through the LSBU Internship Program. It is meant to familiarize you with the types of positions you may find yourself placed in. Placements are not limited to, nor guaranteed to be available in, the fields/job types listed below. This is the reason applicants are required to list three different fields of interest on the application.

Travel & Tourism: Students have interned at some of London’s well-known hotels as well as other leisure and tourism services. Placements have involved creating and managing events for tourists coming to London, assisting with brand delivery for the organization in question, contributing articles to travel publications, and assisting hotel and hostel companies with providing events and holiday experiences. 

Theater: Students have worked in centers for the performing arts, dance studios (for musical theatre among others), fringe and mainstream theatres, theatre companies, and theatre or literary-related museums (doing research and presentations). Specific to London, past students have had the chance to work in London’s thriving West End. From small, independent theaters to more established performance venues, there is ample opportunity to gain experience to budding actors, producers and (set) designers.

Tier 4 (General) Student Visa

In order to intern during your time in the U.K., you will need to obtain a Tier 4 (General) Student Visa. A Tier 4 Student Visa allows you to complete up to 20 internship (work) hours per week in tandem with your studies. To view the UKVI (United Kingdom Visas and Immigration) fee, timing and application information for the Tier 4 (General) Student Visa, please click here. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain this necessary visa before departure. Students will need to read all information provided at the previous link to be knowledgable about deadlines and requirements.

Upon acceptance to the London Internship Program, a $5,000 down payment becomes due. This down payment is used to pay LSBU for your CAS (Certificate of Acceptance for Studies) Statement. This CAS Statement is necessary for you to begin the Tier 4 Student Visa application process. Your CAS will be issued to ASA, and then sent to you. Your CAS Statement is a specialized number you’re assigned, which you will enter into your online visa application.

Once you have been issued your CAS, you will schedule a Skype meeting with a member of the LSBU Immigration Advice Team. You will work to complete, but not submit, your application prior to this Skype. Your application will be reviewed with the LSBU Immigration Advice Team, as well as your evidentiary documents. Please get in touch with ASA if you have any questions regarding the evidentiary documents you must provide.

After your visa application has been reviewed by LSBU, you will submit your application and pay the application fee (students are responsible for the payment of the application fee, it is NOT included in the ASA program price). You must apply for your visa at least six weeks before your departure. You can apply as early as 90 days prior. You will need to send your passport to the UKVI, so it is VERY IMPORTANT not to book any international travel in the three months prior to your departure for the London Internship Program.

When submitting your application, you’ll be prompted to schedule a Biometrics Appointment at a Homeland Security Office (locations will be listed in the application). Applicants must attend this appointment to have their photograph and fingerprints taken. Your receipt from the Biometrics appointment, as well as your passport, must be mailed to the UKVI immediately following your appointment.

After your visa is processed, it will be mailed back to you. Upon arrival in London, you will present the visa to the airport Immigration Officer, it will be stamped, and you will enter the U.K.

Following your review of the UKVI’s information, please contact ASA with any further questions.

Coursework at UAL tends to be more project based than lecture based. While students will have guidance available from their instructors and attend lectures and visits, you may find that more independence is expected of you. Past students have reported that this teaching style gave them more freedom to create and explore than they had ever experienced before.

Students should have at least one alternate course from the same session approved by their home institution, in addition to their top choice in case of changes in availability. Some courses fill to capacity before the Application Deadline, so it is recommended you apply early.
