UAL Careers and Enterprise Diversity outreach

Still, not enough Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students are applying for funds and opportunities available to them at University of the Arts London. This is reflected the attainment gap, and lack work prospects recent graduated of BAME students face, in comparison to their white peers. UAL Careers and Employability is working towards reaching more BAME student audiences so spread the word, share and… apply!
