shapes UCA

We believe that technological innovation sits at the heart of solving important issues facing society today, from sustainability to equality and inclusion. And so, our courses are designed to respond to the ever-evolving digital landscape, from virtual and augmented reality and mobile app design and development to digital fashion and visual effects. 

Cutting-edge technology runs hand in hand with the methods, practices and skills our students learn across our courses - enhancing their creativity. Our students use it to plan and produce exciting games, innovative products, sustainable textiles, 3D-printed jewellery, graphic design projects and more.  

By having the latest software and equipment – and offering future-facing degree courses – we make sure our students are ahead of the curve and ready to turn their innovative skills into life-changing careers.

UCA is so close-knit – you get your tutor time, staff are always approachable and classes are smaller. It has digital resources and production alongside the analogue side; you get the best of both worlds.
