University of the Creative Arts
Creativity makes global communities more vibrant, more innovative, more human.
Which is why, for 160 years, the University for the Creative Arts has been a passionate advocate for creativity, tailoring each student’s education to help every one to forge the path that’s right for them.
UCA is the UK’s highest-ranked creative specialist university, offering courses in Architecture, Crafts, Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration, Fine Art, Photography, Film, Media, the Performing Arts and Creative Business.
But that’s not the whole story.
The University’s campuses across Surrey and Kent, and overseas, are places to forge inspiring partnerships, work with creative experts and build real solutions to human problems.
You’ll find UCA students, staff and graduates making waves in every corner of the creative industries. They’re making fashion more inclusive, inventing new sustainable materials, using art to change perspectives, and winning awards – from Golden Globes to Pulitzers.
What support does UCA provide for disabled students?
We have a Disability & SpLD team at each of our four main campuses and provide services and visits by arrangement to our satellite campus locations at the Royal School of Needlework and Maidstone TV Studios. Our service is designed to help disabled students overcome or reduce barriers to learning and work towards more independent learning strategies, coping strategies and positive approaches to managing stress and anxiety.
Help to settle into University life
Starting university is an anxious time which can be increased if you have a disability or specific learning difference. We can offer support to help you get to know your campus and the services available to you.
The Campus Buddy scheme will connect you with a current student on your campus, who will help you with settling into university life at UCA during the first term.
You may benefit from attending a relaxed welcome and orientation day delivered to a smaller group of students prior to the main induction and welcome week in September.
