Based in a busy, historic student city, our Canterbury campus benefits from easy access to local exhibition projects and spaces such as the Turner Contemporary Gallery, as well as its own dedicated facilities. Our Canterbury campus is a short walk from the city centre and has a range of purpose-built studios, workshops and lecture theatres. The campus offers courses in Architecture, Fine Art, Illustration and Animation, and Graphic Design. It’s also home to a vibrant Further Education department that runs popular Foundation Diploma, Extended Diploma and Access to Higher Education Diploma courses. Alumni from the campus include: –– O  scar-winning filmmaker and designer Arnold Schwartzman OBE –– J  ustin Bere, innovative architect and most influential person in UK sustainability, 2010 –– A  ward-winning children’s illustrator, Babette Cole –– Iconic album cover artist, Roger Dean –– The creator of Rupert Bear, Mary Tourtel –– J  ames Burgess, Ministry of Sound DJ and sound engineer.

Canterbury students aim and achieve high while they study, too — current and recent students have won awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects, exhibited in the Turner Contemporary and designed skyscrapers in London. Many, too, continue their studies through to postgraduate level. With on-campus accommodation, a café, a newly-refurbished bar and a range of art facilities including a specialist library, an art shop and the Herbert Read Gallery, our Canterbury campus is a relaxed and creative environment to study in.


“I chose UCA Canterbury for the city itself, it’s a beautiful and bustling historic place with wonderful architecture on display. Alongside that, I found the intimate design studios on campus and agendas of the School of Architecture interesting and that has helped me evolve personally and professionally.” Daniel Stilwell, MA Architecture UCA Canterbury


Discover the city

Leisure and the arts

Canterbury is an unexpectedly small city with a big student population – being home to three universities makes it a lively place, with no shortage of entertainment or good food.

Canterbury’s two theatres (the contemporary Marlowe, and the Gulbenkian on the University of Kent campus) offer a wide programme, including opera, musicals, theatre, dance, music, pantomime and stand-up comedy.

Canterbury at a glance… –– Masses of student appeal –– Vibrant international art scene –– Steeped in history –– Over 80 restaurants and pubs –– Great for hopping across the Channel.

Many of our graduates find that Canterbury offers a lot towards helping them carve a career in the arts. We’ve created exciting links within Kent’s vibrant international art scene with festivals, grants, paid apprenticeships, studio spaces and internships available for art and design students and graduates in the area. Nightlife

You’ll find dancing, DJs, comedy, cocktails, live bands and more – Canterbury has an eclectic mix of laid-back pubs, lively clubs and popular bars offering nights out to appeal to all tastes. You’ll also be within easy reach of London, as well as the towns of Ashford, Maidstone and Rochester if you fancy exploring further afield. Shopping

If you’re in need of some retail therapy, Canterbury’s Whitefriars shopping centre brings you the best in fashion and lifestyle brands, while the King’s Mile, Westgate and St Dunstan’s are just a stone’s throw away and offer a range of specialist and individual outlets. If you’d rather browse more unusual and retro products, head for the independent craft and gift shops, boutiques and galleries in Herne Bay and Whitstable.


The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge offers an array of unusual collections, and for something a little off-beat, there are the Bagpuss and Rupert Bear displays at the Canterbury Heritage Museum. You might also come across the Canterbury Festival, held in October – a major international arts festival that brings a rich mixture of performing arts from around the world.

“I chose UCA because I wanted to study in a creative and diverse environment where I could be inspired and motivated by other disciplines within art and design. I considered the environment during my interview – Canterbury is a great historic city which I immediately felt comfortable in when I visited.” Antonia Adjei-Mensah, MA Architecture UCA Canterbury



Our Epsom campus is a modern, well-equipped collection of studios and facilities set in a picturesque town within easy reach of London. Living and studying at our Epsom campus, you’ll be immersed in a hub of creativity – the perfect place to let your talent run wild and create the extraordinary. Our Epsom campus is home to our Business School for the Creative Industries, offering a range of fashion, management, financial and marketing courses alongside graphic design and music. Through our Business School, you’ll have access to influential professionals, job prospects and potential employers, and with multiple technical and industry facilities on site, you’ll have a truly amazing study experience. Students from our Epsom campus have worked on a wide array of projects for well-known brands before graduating — our fashion courses have industry connections with Ted Baker, Topman, Red or Dead, Adidas, Puma, Givenchy, Ralph Lauren, French Connection and L’Oreal to name only a few. Our fashion students have also worked on industry-level projects including custom clothing for Florence and the Machine. They have had notable success at the Graduate Fashion Week, with many winning awards. Students on the Fashion Journalism course have undertaken placements with the likes of Vogue, Elle, Love Magazine and Dazed & Confused — and have continued on to careers with Harrods, John Lewis, Oasis and Bloomingdales.


Our music students have also benefitted from strong industry connections such as Kerrang!, Mojo, NME and The Guardian and graduates are now working for organisations like Radio 1, Vie and Absolute Radio. You might have seen some of our graphic design students’ work, too — on Nescafé coffee tins in 2016 and 2017, a project that has been a success two years in a row. Must-see on campus: The print room has an excellent collection of tools varying from the traditional screen-printing to the modern process of laser-cutting, and is always worth a visit.

“I came to an Open Day and it certainly made a difference as I wasn’t going to go to a university blind. The facilities, location to London and staff made my mind up.” Mason Terrill, Graphic Design UCA Epsom

Previously voted one of the top ten most desirable places to live, Epsom has a friendly, community-focused feel.

There are over 30 pubs and bars in and around Epsom, and plenty within walking distance of the university. You can head to a ‘proper pub’ for a craft beer, a lively Latino-themed cocktail bar or the ever-popular local Wetherspoons hangout for more budget-friendly prices.

Only a stone’s throw from London, it’s the perfect place to live and study. With a huge choice of bars and restaurants, great shopping, a multiplex cinema, nightclubs and much more, the town has bags of entertainment appeal. The town has a vibrant arts scene, boosted by exhibitions and activities organised by Surrey Arts (Surrey County Council), Surrey Contemporary Arts and Surrey Artists. The local youth service has a strong arts presence and works hard to promote new talent – you’ll often see student work showcased in many venues across the town.


For a change of scenery, a short trip to London will leave you spoilt for choice.

As well as its famous horse races, the Epsom Downs Racecourse also plays host to regular antique fairs, summer concerts, nights out and family fun days.

Farnham enjoys a long-standing association with the creative industries and is crammed with art galleries, venues and craft shops. The town and borough councils both support the thriving arts culture and work with local organisations to develop local craft and projects within England’s Craft Town.

Farnham at a glance…

Let the Farnham Maltings inspire you. This creative organisation works with artists and communities to encourage people to make, see and enjoy the best art possible.

From fry-ups to fine dining, you’re spoilt for choice in Farnham. You can take your pick from coffee shops, pizza houses and bistros as well as quirky, independent cafés and restaurants. Farnham has roots in the brewery trade too, so it’s no wonder that there are also over 50 pubs to choose from and plenty within walking distance of the campus. As the mood takes you, choose from a 16th century tavern with local ales and an open fire, regular live music gigs in a shabby-chic pub or a contemporary chain bar offering late-night resident DJs and cocktails.

We aim to house as many new full-time students as possible who want to live in university accommodation, in line with our allocation policy.

We offer a portfolio advice talk on our Open Days to make sure that you know exactly what we expect when you come for your interview – check the timetable on the day for details. We’ll explain what a portfolio is, what type of work you should include and how to present your portfolio at interview.

We’ve also put together a set of videos talking you through the process:
