Careers and Employability

and Employability

Wherever you are on your creative journey we're here to help you take the next step.

You'll work alongside practising artists and industry leaders when you study with us, and our Careers Advisers will help you to set out on a career that is just right for you. Our Advisers will share their in-depth knowledge and experience of the creative sectors, they'll show you how to make the most of your industry contacts and they'll be there for you when you take that leap into industry.

And even after you've graduated you'll can still access our online resources, live events, and bookable one-to-one sessions to help you plan your next move.

What's on offer to UCA students

We work closely with course teams to deliver workshops, lectures, placements and seminars as part of your course.

Our dedicated one-to-one appointments are with experienced Careers Advisers. Students can book a session to find out more about further study, working abroad and how to kickstart a job search.

Featuring sessions with industry experts and panel discussions with Graduates who have made a name in their chosen creative fields, our careers events provide in-depth understanding of the creative industries.

Our careers platform is where our students find out about work experience positions, paid job vacancies, and information about working in the creative sector.
