The Complete University Guide 2021 names UCA the country's top creative specialist

The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) has risen four places in the Complete University Guide’s 2021 league table, retaining our position as the highest-ranked creative specialist in the country.

Rising four places to 44th is testament to the institution’s recurring position in the Guide’s Top Five of all Modern Universities in the UK, despite the challenging circumstances the university sector has been operating in.

UCA Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bashir Makhoul, said: “In recent months we’ve faced such uncertain times, so this exciting news gives me the encouragement to continue the hard work that the University has been doing so far, and spurs me on to tackle the approaching challenges.

“I am delighted that we not only rose four places but retained our position as the top place in the country to study the creative disciplines, continuing to offer our students a multitude of courses in the creative arts, business and technology.
