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.
The campus is bursting with artistic energy and offers an inspirational environment to embark on a creative degree. Perched high on a hill, our purpose-built Rochester campus enjoys great views over the town and the River Medway. The campus is a creative hub for students studying a rich variety of courses in fashion, photography, product design and digital animation.
UCA Rochester overlooks the Medway area, home to some of the most creative people in the country. The Zandra Rhodes Gallery provides a focus for local interest in the arts as the campus hosts important exhibitions and contemporary art and design events throughout the year. UCA Rochester is at the centre of a busy community of creative arts organisations that produce, promote and retail the very best in contemporary design, craft and media, making Medway a phenomenally vibrant centre for all creatively minded people.
