International students applying to study art in the UK will need to think about which part of the subject they are interested in and then research the right art school or university to apply to. Each art school has different equipment and specialisations to help you learn.
Universities often invite professional artists and critics to talk to students, whose studio work often culminates in a public display of final year students' art.
Art graduates will move into careers in multimedia, publishing, advertising, museums, galleries, fashion, and the film industry, doing a wide range of roles, which can include photography, illustration, graphic design, interior design and website design.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
