We are disappointed that OccupyUAL have not brought the sit-in at King’s Cross to a close, following our offer of a joint review with the Students’ Union of our decision to reduce the number of places on Foundation in Art and Design courses.

This offer of a review was contingent upon the sit-in ending by 18:00 today. It is therefore with regret that we cannot now commit to a review.

This review would have involved a working party of up to eight members, co-chaired and equally composed of UAL management and Students’ Union elected officers. It would have embraced issues such as financial support for students, an equality impact assessment on students including ethnicity and social class, and student attainment.
