At UCA, we know that everyone’s interests and ambitions are different, so we’re all about helping you find your own individual creative direction. Here’s what some of our recent grads have to say about their time with us, and how it has shaped their journeys.


“My lecturers supported me over three years of balancing music industry work with university commitments. On my last day, I handed in my final project and got straight on a tour bus with Anne Marie!” Phoebe Fox


“The course was structured as though we were already in industry, so I left prepared for any professional environment. I’ve spoken at events for TED and Google, where the skills I learned have been invaluable.” Jamie Windust


“My tutors didn’t just focus on the design aesthetics of creating a brand, but also the thinking behind it, which played a big part in getting me where I am with my stationery brand.” Kelsey Layne


“It was life-changing. For the first time, I felt like I could express who I am in a place where I was surrounded by like-minded people. It prepared me to step into the world of work.” Craig Maxwell
