WHY STUDY AT UCA?
Oscar winning filmmakers, world renowned fashion designers, television presenters, celebrity jewellers and Turner Prize nominees are just some of the high-profile graduates from the University for the Creative Arts.
As a specialist creative arts university, we have created a unique community for our students, where like-minded people can share in the creative process and inspire one another. Collaboration between courses is encouraged, with fine artists studying with budding filmmakers and fashion designers working alongside architects. In this way, our students benefit from exposure to a range of disciplines.
Choosing to study with us will give you the freedom to discover your own personal style through a winning combination of industry-focused courses, state-of-the-art facilities, and inspirational expert staff.
With over 2,000 students, Farnham is the biggest of the UCA campuses and has an incredibly strong community feel. The campus is home to the James Hockey and Foyer galleries which host a range of exhibitions by visiting artists as well as UCA staff, students and graduates. A number of research centre are also based on campus, including the Centre for Sustainable Design and the Crafts Study Centre, which is a purpose built museum and gallery for crafts.
The campus is only a 15-minute walk from the station, so you can zip into central London in just under an hour. The vibrant town of Guildford is only a short drive away. And, if you fancy casting your net wider, you’re only a stone’s throw from many seaside towns along the south coast.
If you’d like to find out more about our courses and our uniquely creative communities, why not visit us on an Open Day? You can meet academic staff and students, attend subject talks, get expert portfolio advice, and take a tour of the campuses, facilities and accommodation.
Attending one of our Farnham Open Days will give you the opportunity to experience just what it’s like to be a student here.
