Polly

"Our tutors are one of the best things about being a student at UAL. They give you invaluable advice and have endless amounts of knowledge about their subject to share."

Polly chose to study at UAL because she wanted to be in a busy city environment surrounded by art and like-minded students to draw inspiration. She was also impressed by all the talent associated with UAL’s staff and alumni.

"I honestly feel privileged to be here. The first time I walked around Camberwell, I felt like it was somewhere I could really see myself blossoming."

Initially, Polly applied for Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts, but was offered an unconditional place for BA (Hons) Photography (now BA (Hons) Fine Art: Photograpy) at Camberwell College of Arts. She was hesitant at first, but after looking at the course and visiting the campus, she realised Camberwell was the perfect fit.

“I am glad that the Chelsea tutor decided my style of work was better suited to Camberwell – I haven’t looked back since.”

A highlight for Polly has been the insights from tutors, who are practicing artists. They offer advice from a professional point of view and have endless amounts of knowledge that they want to share with their students.

“I am yet to come across an intimidating tutor. Everyone has been so accommodating and willing to help me in any way they can.”

Being a student in London means everything is on your doorstep. Some of Polly’s favourite places around Camberwell are the South London Gallery, the Horniman Museum and the Bussey Building that hosts soul nights and has a rooftop bar and cinema.

"London is such a big place and there is something for everyone - especially UAL students who want to wander endlessly around art galleries!"

Attending a college involved with the Progression Partnership scheme allowed Polly to create the sort of work and portfolio that UAL wanted to see, and get an understanding of what a course at UAL would be like. Her experience with the partnership gave her the confidence to apply to UAL.

"My advice to current students is to just go for it, even if you are hesitant about applying or lack the confidence, just do it. The interview alone was so beneficial to me, even before being offered a place."
