Information and advice

We have made a number of changes to make our campuses covid-secure and keep our students, staff and local communities safe. This is all being done in accordance with government guidance and is being continually reviewed. Please visit the government website for the very latest. 

You can find out more about the changes we’ve made - from the mandatory wearing of face coverings to COVID-19 Inductions and Codes of Conduct for staff and students - on these pages.  


Universities that offer practical courses have been given the green light by Government to plan a safe and staggered return to campus from the 8 March.  At UCA, we are inviting our students back in year groups, alongside essential staff, to access our on-campus Covid-19 testing facilities. Once they have been tested twice these students will be able to access our studios, workshops and other specialist facilities, alongside personalised support from our academic teams.

Our students and staff will be expected to take part in regular twice weekly testing until at least Easter.
