Researchers at Google have revealed that UAL is one of the most popular overseas universities for US students. Google’s research shows UAL is the ninth most searched for university among US students looking to study overseas. Google’s education team analysed US internet searches during 2014, and found that six of the ten most searched for subjects by US students looking to study overseas are arts/creative subjects. The research also found that fashion is the second most searched for course, with London College of Fashion among the most highly searched specialist institutions. London tops Google’s poll of the most searched for city by US students looking to study abroad.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson announced the research findings during his trade mission to the US, aimed at strengthening economic and cultural ties between London and the US. In his speech Boris singled out UAL for special praise, referencing UAL’s move to Stratford and our key role as one of the leading cultural and educational providers in the capital.
A delegation from UAL is currently visiting the States for a series of education events, including the inauguration of the New York UAL alumni group. American students make up the fourth largest international group studying at the University.
