Undergraduate courses fees & finance

Studying an undergraduate course at the University for the Creative Arts is an investment in your future. With graduates earning on average £12,000 per year more than non-graduates, it's an investment well worth making.

There are many costs associated with studying at university and, while these may seem daunting at first, don’t forget that, as an undergraduate from the UK, you can apply for a student loan to help pay for tuition fees and you may also be eligible for a loan for living costs. These are designed to be affordable. You will only begin to pay back your loans when you are earning more than £25,000 a year, with repayments based on your salary, not the amount you borrow. 

If you are a student from the European Union or an International country looking for information about funding, please visit our EU and International fees and finance section.

Are you a UCA student progressing through the Diploma 2 Degree (D2D) scheme?

We are able to offer you a D2D Creative Scholarship.

If you have been offered a degree place through the D2D scheme, and you accept that offer before 31 January 2020, then you will be eligible for a £500 bursary to help to pay for technology, books or to put towards your travel costs.

When you apply, simply select what you want your bursary to be for (technology/travel costs/books). Once your application is processed and checked and you’re confirmed to eligible, you’ll hear from Student Records to let you know in October. Your bursary will be paid to you once you’ve submitted your financial information.
