The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) has risen to 25th place in the Times Higher Education Table of Tables 2020. This is the highest position UCA has held to date and makes UCA the only specialist creative arts university to be featured in the Top 30, and among the best-performing universities in the UK.
The annual Table of Tables has been running since 2008 and combines the results of the three main UK university league tables: The Complete University Guide, The Guardian, and the combined Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide.
Professor John Pymm, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of UCA, said: “I am incredibly proud that UCA continues to receive recognition for the exceptional educational experience and creative opportunities it offers to students. This news comes on the back of our recent success, ranking 13th in the Guardian League Table 2020 and cements our position as one of the largest and best providers of creative education in Europe.
“As the only creative specialist in the Top 30, we owe a debt of gratitude to UCA’s hard-working team of world-class academics and researchers who are equipping the next generation of creators, innovators and leaders with the skills they need to thrive in the creative industries.”
UCA has more than 7,500 students studying on 120 creative arts, business and technology courses at campuses in Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham, Rochester, Hampton Court and Maidstone as well as by distance learning. As the No.1 creative specialist, UCA nurtures highly-skilled and versatile professionals to be able to thrive in the creative industries, which is now worth more than £100 billion each year.
