We’ve opened up Palace Court, our dedicated Pre-degree campus for their annual Summer Show, running alongside the college-wide Degree Shows 2019.

Featuring art from the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming young creatives, the Pre-degree Summer Show is free and open to the public from 15 - 21 June.

Students aged 16-19 from our UAL Extended Diploma in Art & Design programmes have transformed Palace Court's open-plan studios into a lively gallery space, showcasing art, fashion, design and digital media.

Visitors can enjoy a diverse collection of cross-collaborative artwork, conceptual thinking and impressive technique, as students on the pre-degree courses celebrate the culmination of two years of intensive experimentation and personal development.

“For these young professionals this exhibition is the crowning triumph of a two year, intense, exciting experience in which they develop not just amazing technical skills but the personal character to put these skills into action in their future careers.”
— Matias Shortcook, Associate Dean of Pre-degree

Mixed media artwork on display includes installation, photography, sculpture, garment construction, printmaking, web graphics and more, as a new generation of artists, designers and makers take the bold leap into undergraduate study and commercial success.
