Please note: The academic year for the Research Degree Course runs from 1 October to 30 September each year. Unlike undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, the research degree course at UAL encapsulates a full 12 months, as the degree is based on independent research rather than taught elements. Supervision can occur outside of term time; however term dates are taken into account for employment and recommended hours of study calculations.
