not just a shop is UAL's pioneering new retail and enterprise learning space in High Holborn.

not just a shop sells design products and artwork by the University’s abundance of talented alumni, whilst also providing a space for students to get support with starting and developing their businesses.

New products are sourced through a biannual open call. Students and graduates who meet the criteria outlined in our buying policy can submit their work for the chance to be included in the next season’s collection. 

UAL has long supported its students with starting and developing their businesses; the University’s Careers and Employability department helps students and alumni to embark on their professional futures in the creative industries, find jobs, set up businesses and sell their work.

As the name suggests, not just a shop is much more than a commercial retail space; it also hosts a programme of talks and workshops on topics ranging from pricing work to protecting intellectual property. Proceeds from the shop are reinvested back into supporting the department’s enterprise programme, which includes free talks, workshops, funding and one-to-one business education. 

Join our mailing list or follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to be informed about special events and offers.

not just a shop is sponsored by eIP.

  • Meet this week’s #FineArtFriday artist -  @starkey_painter. ・・・
Drawing video ✏️✏️🐴🦄🐴🐴 #artinprogress #progress #drawing
  • #FineArtFriday  Irina Starkova's (@starkey_painter) paintings explore the relationship between mind and body and her work addresses the fragmented relationship of our conscious mental states and subconscious dream states. She developed a series of oil and collage works on wood panels exploring these issues. Irina studied at the Andriyaka Art School in Moscow between 2001-2006 and is currently a Fine Art student at @chelseaual. ⠀
