Creative Futures (formerly Graduate Futures Week) is University of the Arts London‘s annual careers event, designed to help students and graduates to get ahead in the creative industries, either as employed or self-employed professionals.

The week long programme includes: practical and inspiring talks and workshops; one-to-one support; employment and graduate opportunities; and industry networking.

2020 will also include the Creative Futures Fair, a careers and job fair which supports working in the creative industries and is a great opportunity for employers and creative sector supporters to meet face-to-face with UAL’s creative, motivated and talented students and graduates to promote their brand, services, offers or vacancies.

Creative Futures is part of UAL’s Big Refresh – a non-teaching week across CCW, CSM and LCC when students can find out more about the services, societies and industry advice on offer.
