Methods of teaching and learning in the UK may differ from those in your own country and the University for the Creative Arts encourage students to think creatively and to produce personalised, original and individual solutions to assignments. This means that there is not always a 'right' or a 'wrong' way to answer a set assignment.
The University for the Creative Arts is committed to helping students achieve to the highest level of which they are capable. Students will have the opportunity to update and improve academic English skills, through attending English Language support classes and tutorials, with staff specialising in the theoretical aspects of the course, will also help you develop your English Language ability.
If you have come from an educational background that is more structured towards direct instruction, you may find the UK learning methods challenging at first.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
