Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt visits UCA

On Friday of last week, Vice-Chancellor Professor Bashir Makhoul met with Foreign Secretary and local Farnham MP Jeremy Hunt at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) Farnham. The Vice-Chancellor took this opportunity to update the Foreign Secretary on the University for the Creative Arts, and in particular its international partnership development activity.

Jeremy commented: “It was a genuine pleasure to learn more about the many recent successes and ambitious new plans for UCA. We should never forget the contribution the creative industries make on the British economy, and I am very proud that we have one of the best creative arts universities here in Farnham.”

The University for the Creative Arts is the second largest provider of creative arts education in Europe. The University offers a global perspective in creative education, with seventeen percent of our students coming to study with us from overseas and strong collaborative links with over fifty partner institutions around the world.

Bashir Makhoul said: “We were delighted to welcome the Foreign Secretary and tell him about our work to build on our position as the number one creative specialist university in two university league tables, and how we achieved this through international developments and collaborations.”
