At UCA, we believe that creativity makes global communities more vibrant, more innovative, more human.
Which is why, for 160 years, our university has been a passionate advocate for creative education and research.
We offer courses in Architecture, Crafts, Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration, Fine Art, Photography, Film, Media, the Performing Arts and Creative Business. Our programmes are acclaimed for their top teaching quality, and highly respected by creative sector employers.
But we’re a lot more than that, too.
We want to inspire people to use their creativity to drive change, overcome challenges and improve the lives of others.
So we’ve designed our university to be an inclusive, dynamic environment. Our campuses across Surrey and Kent, our Institute for Creative Innovation in Xiamen, China, and our homes within partner organisations such as the Maidstone Television Studios all have one thing in common:
They are places to forge inspiring partnerships, make work with purpose and build real solutions to human problems across the globe – whether that’s as part of our vibrant teaching and research community, or as a student on one of our courses.
If you’re looking for a fully creative university experience, you’ve come to the right place: we’re one of the UK’s top creative universities, entirely dedicated to creative courses.
But we’re more than that, too. On each of our campuses, you’ll find a close-knit community of staff and students who are learning together, collaborating, sharing ideas and pushing boundaries to solve real problems. Together, we create work that changes lives and shifts perspectives.
