-- Roslindale, MA - Academic Studies Abroad (ASA), a study abroad provider with programs in Europe and Latin America, recently extended its diverse offerings in the UK by opening a new program at University of the Arts London. The University of the Arts London is Europe's most influential university for art, design, fashion, communication and the performing arts. It is made up of six colleges, each located in the heart of their respective communities throughout London. The colleges include Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion, and Wimbledon College of Art. Drawing from and contributing to the local culture, they foster closely-knit and welcoming environments in which to study, supported by all the resources of the larger University and the wider arts community.
The Colleges offer the University’s 20,000 students a diverse range of courses. The University’s teaching staff, as active professional artists, practitioners, designers, critics and theorists, lead the way on creative and experimental practice, alongside historical and theoretical analysis. The combination of a varied student group, cutting-edge research, and highly-experienced staff creates a unique, multifaceted learning experience for students at the University.
“ASA is dedicated to making sure that students in all majors have the opportunity to study in exciting locations and at universities that offer courses that are relevant and interesting to them,” said ASA Director Lee Frankel. “By expanding our offerings in London and opening this new program, we are giving arts students the chance to study in one of the most beautiful and inspiring cities in the world. An opportunity such as this will not only open students’ minds, but offer them a unique opportunity to bolster their resumes and portfolios.”
