University of the Creative Arts, one of the top creative universities in the UK, has been named Modern University of the Year by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019. It’s also the highest placed specialist creative university and in the top 35 of all UK universities in the Times and Sunday Times league table. As a specialist arts institution, UCA is 100% creative. Their distinctiveness against larger multi-disciplinary universities comes from focusing on provision through the creative campuses, which are not compromised by sharing facilities with other subjects or disciplines. With more than 6,000 students studying over 110 creative courses across four campuses, UCA generates unique communities of artists, designers, makers, writers and researchers. Many of their students and alumni have achieved artistic excellence and commercial success, such as Gareth Edwards, Zandra Rhodes, Tracy Emin and so on.
