Unleash your Creativity

We’re specialists. We get excited about change, difference, and the possibilities they open up. We’re all about shaping the future of creativity and teaching you how to find opportunities that speak to you – at university and beyond.

What makes us different

UCA has more than 160 years of history, but we’re always looking forward. Our experienced academics come from all walks of life and bring a huge variety of specialist knowledge from the creative sector. This will give you the confidence that you'll not only learn more about your chosen creative subject, but be ready to take on the world when you leave.

We’ll help turn your creative ideas into reality thanks to the extensive industry standard facilities, resources, and connections you'll have access to, as well as support from those around you in our close-knit community.

You’ll find the experience with us to be quieter and calmer than that offered at bigger universities, giving you the freedom to express yourself openly alongside like-minded others. Plus, our campuses are still in easy reach of lively cities and London, keeping you well-connected.
