Schedule a call with a student representative:



I am a third-year student pursuing a BA degree in History of Art. I am currently working on my dissertation focusing on fairy tale book illustrations from 1870 to 1920 and their impact on children. I will be able to answer any questions you have about life at UCL and in the department of History of Art, how to manage living in London and how to make the most of your first year. I am also taking courses in Archaeology and Italian and can address questions you have in those subjects. My current interests revolve around the links between fashion and art as well as psychology and social studies.

Freda Chan

I am a second year History of Art, Materials and Technology student, and can thus answer questions about the Materials and Technology (MAT) side of the course. Being from Singapore, I can give advice on adapting to a new culture and environment, and what it's like to live in London, especially during this pandemic. Currently, I'm interested in contemporary art, especially time-based media and film, as well as conservation.
