Live Virtual Open Days at UCA
We know that Open Days play a key role in helping you decide which university is right for you – it has to be the right fit, from the nature of the course you want to take to the atmosphere of the campus you choose.
In 2021, we are continuing to host a series of live events, designed to help you decide if UCA is right for you.
You’ll have the opportunity to meet Programme Directors and staff from the courses you’re interested in, as well as find out more from our current students. We’re also hosting sessions on University topics such as student finance, and student life, to give you the full picture of what it’s like to study at UCA.
Where could your talent take you?
Could you be the next big name in the fashion industry, a photographer to the stars, or an award-winning animator or movie director?
At UCA, we specialise in unlocking creative talent across the arts, business and technology.
We’ll help you take your skills to the next level, and add the vital ingredients you need to build a creative career – from the entrepreneurial skills to form your own start-up to the confidence to exhibit your work publicly or the interpersonal tools to make connections in your chosen industry.
All our courses are designed to challenge and inspire you to make extraordinary things. Check out what our students have created and achieved.
Pick a campus that works for you
We have campuses in four inspiring locations across Kent and Surrey. Each one is home to a creative community like no other, where you’ll make connections that will shape your future.
Whichever you choose, you’ll find amazing specialist facilities located in towns and cities known for their creative vibe, all less than an hour’s train ride from London. Will you be Team Canterbury, Team Epsom, Team Farnham or Team Rochester?
Explore them all below.
Finding your home from home
Starting a new course can be a bit daunting, particularly if you’re moving away from home for the first time. So you need to know you’ll be living somewhere welcoming, safe and homely while you study.
Each of our campuses has its own halls of residence, and we can also help if you need or want to find a privately rented home you’ll love.

What’s it like to be a UCA student?
UCA is all about community. Here, you’ll be surrounded by people who share your passions, immersing yourself in a creative atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else.
Each campus sits in a vibrant town with its own culture, shops, entertainment and nightlife, and our on-campus social spaces are perfect venues to share ideas, hatch plans, or just enjoy some downtime.
On top of that, our Students’ Union runs a host of different activities – from training with your cheerleading or rugby team-mates to dancing to K-Pop or joining Pride parades with your friends, there’s a place for you to be yourself, to grow and to thrive.
