About the University for the Creative Arts
The University for the Creative Arts is for specialists like you, looking for a career in the creative industries. Courses span Arts, Business and Technology with subjects from Acting & Performance to Virtual & Augmented Reality – with plenty in between.
Campuses are located across the South East of England in Surrey and Kent, and provide spaces where you’ll have the freedom to express yourself alongside like-minded individuals.
Many courses encourage and support work experience within your chosen creative industry and even offer the chance for you to study abroad for a year. With all of this at your fingertips, and the ability to work collaboratively on your projects with other course, UCA has everything to help you prepare for life after your qualification.
Both our students and staff come from all walks of life across the world and bring a variety of abilities and skills with them from the creative sector. Our past and present student body are all united with their shared dedication and passion for creativity. Graduates leave UCA with the skills and drive to innovate and push the boundaries of the creative industries – and regularly come back to chat with current students about the experiences both at UCA and within the creative industries.
Each of our campuses have dedicated student support teams, so that all students are able to make the most out of their time at UCA. These teams are able to provide support both in person and online, with advice for both home and international students including health and wellbeing, finance and support and assistance with disabilities and learning difficulties.
We are a vibrant community of makers, artists, and innovators – so which ever campus you choose, you’ll feel right at home!
