UCA offers a range of postgraduate courses – whether it's an MFA in Photography, a Master of Architecture, or an MBA.

If you're keen to deepen your creative understanding, all the information you need to apply is here.

All you need to do is find your chosen course using the form on this webpage and click the 'Apply Now' to apply using our online application form.


We accept applications throughout the year. There’s no set deadline but we encourage you to apply by 31 March so you have enough time to prepare for your studies and arrange funding, should you need it.

When we get your application we’ll send you an email with your login details for the applicant portal. This is where you'll access all the information you'll need through your applicant journey.

Once you’ve made your application we may invite you to an interview. We don’t interview all applicants - we may decide to offer you a place based on the strength of your application. If you are invited to an interview, this could be in-person, online or telephone interview. We may also ask you to upload a portfolio of work using the 'portfolio upload task' on the applicant portal.

You can discover more about the selection process and creating your portfolio on each individual course page. We’ll send you more details through the applicant portal after we've received your application.
