What happens

To make sure that you have everything you need to forge ahead with your creative ideas and ambitions, we've created each of our campuses with a few specialist focuses in mind.

Wherever your course is based, your campus will have the professional-grade facilities you need to take your talent further and be home to expert academics with the right knowledge and skills to support you in your studies.

And with each campus located in a beautiful city or town close to the bright lights of London, you'll get to enjoy both inspiring surroundings and industry connections.

At our Canterbury campus, budding architects build their skills, fine artists find inspiration, and the designers of the future explore new possibilities.

If you want to make a career in the business side of the creative industries, you'll find your home in UCA Epsom's Business School for the Creative Industries. The campus is also home to fashion and graphic design courses.

Located in the heart of the World Craft Town of Farnham, UCA Farnham is home to a wide range of specialist craft degrees. It's also the base for our world-renowned Animation course and highly respected degrees in gaming, film, performance, music, illustration, graphic design, fine art and photography.

If fashion is your passion, you'll find the tools and expertise to make it in the industry right here - whether its textiles, design, make-up and hair or photography.

Maidstone Television Studios - close to UCA Rochester - is where our BA TV Production students are based. The studios offer dedicated study spaces, industry-standard facilities for practical work, and on-site access to incredible work placement opportunities.

The idyllic and historical setting of Hampton Court Palace is home to the Royal School of Needlework, where students on the UK's only undergraduate degree in Hand Embroidery learn their craft.

OCA offers distance learning opportunities - meaning you can study for a creative degree or qualification from the comfort of your own home. There's a wide range of creative courses to choose from, from drawing and creative writing to garden design.
