The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) is a unique centre of excellence supporting the UK’s world-leading reputation across the full breadth of creative arts professions. UCA prepares its students for employment and leadership in the creative industries through the provision of an intensive, studio-based education and instructs them in the use of industry-standard technical facilities.
