Why do a postgraduate degree?

There are many reasons why you might consider a postgraduate degree as part of your learning journey.

It might be you need one to qualify in a specific field – like architecture for example – or you may want a career change, improved job prospects of a wish to specialise. Or it could just be pure passion for learning and your craft

Either way, our postgraduate courses will provide what you’re looking for, and more.

You’ll be challenged to push the boundaries of whatever it is you’re learning, whether its marketing or making, theory or practice. You’ll question, critique, explore and experiment, and you’ll develop the technical and research skills required to excel in your sphere of industry – whether it’s on a local, national or global scale.

As the Modern University of the Year (The Times Good University Guide) and with TEF Gold Award status, UCA offers the very best in facilities, opportunities and teaching. Our staff are renowned for their own personal careers and successes, and bring with them a wealth of knowledge, support and rich industry connections which you can exploit to develop your own skills and vital working relationships.

There are also extra-curricular opportunities to take advantage of on many of our courses, from work placements and international study prospects, to end-of-year MA Shows to exhibit work.

Above all, you’ll be able to do all this in a creative and friendly environment which gives you opportunities to collaborate with students from other courses and the room and freedom to thrive and grow.
