University for the Creative Arts

The University for the Creative Arts is situated in the South East of England with four campuses in Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham, and Rochester, as well as specialist courses at The Maidstone Television Studios and the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace.

UCA is now the second largest specialist creative arts university in Europe, with a 160 year track record of educating creative practitioners who go on to lead in their chosen field. Key subject areas include: Animation, Architecture, Crafts & Product Design, Fashion & Textiles, Film, Fine Art, Graphics & Illustration, Journalism, Performing Arts and Photography.

UCA offers a rich practice-based and industry focussed learning experience. Students are taught by academics who are active practitioners in their field, ensuring that each discipline remains relevant to the sectors they serve, with opportunities for students to build connections with the working world whilst at university.

Campuses are 100% creative - learning takes place in a vibrant community of artists, designers, scholars and creative arts professionals, all of whom will provide the support and inspiration for students to create extraordinary and innovative work.
