Case study

MA Textiles

The most impressive things in UCA are artistic freedom and creative atmosphere. Because of I am an international student, everything in the UK are unfamiliar and different. However, UCA encourages me a lot to face all the problems, both study and life. The experience in UCA is unforgettable, responsible tutors and technicians, friendly course mates, comprehensive facilities.

Alumni ambassadors

Do you want to be one of UCA’s international alumni ambassadors? We are looking to connect with all of our students from around the world, so that they can support us at international events and join our growing alumni network.

Our international graduates help our student recruitment activities when we’re out in country. There’ll be great opportunities for you to join our Alumni Committee and expand your skillset, such as:

  • Organising alumni and future UCA student networking events

This is a great opportunity to network with other UCA graduates, as well as future students and creative academics and to also add skills to your CV.
