Is UCA right for you?

UCA has a global outlook but at its heart are three creative communities spread over Surrey and Kent, where you’ll gain the freedom and confidence to unleash your creativity. It doesn’t matter whether you know what you want to do right now, or whether you’re still exploring your options. Whatever course you choose will allow you to grow, to experiment and to discover.

We offer a personalised experience – it’s your course and we’ll help you make it work for you, by providing amazing opportunities to dive deeper into your craft, and encouraging you to try new things you might not have considered. 

And it’s through these opportunities that we’ll help you prepare for your life after university, too. From live industry briefs, competitions, field trips, guest lectures and exhibitions, to work placements from a few weeks through to a year in length. Your time at UCA is designed to help you flourish – whichever campus you study at!
