Early Bird International Scholarships at University for the Creative Arts

The University of Creative Arts is awarding a £1,200 fee deduction to students who are seeking to pursue a degree program at the Institution.

Why study at the University for the Creative Arts?  The university seeks to inspire people to use their creativity to drive change, overcome problems, and better the lives of others. They are places to forge inspiring partnerships, make work with purpose, and build real solutions to human problems across the globe, whether that’s as part of our vibrant teaching and research community or as a student on one of our courses.

The origin of the University for the Creative Arts lies in the establishment of various small art schools in the English counties of Kent and Surrey in the nineteenth century. In Kent the first of these was Maidstone College of Art, founded in 1867, and in Surrey the Guildford School of Art, founded in 1856. During the second half of the twentieth century many of these small art schools merged, eventually forming Kent Institute of Art & Design in 1987, and Surrey Institute of Art & Design in 1995. These two organisations joined forces in 2005 to become the University College for the Creative Arts at Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham, Maidstone and Rochester. In May 2008 the University College for Creative Arts was granted full university status by the Privy Council, and adopted its current name, the University for the Creative Arts, officially in September 2008.

Following the election of a Coalition government, the Department for Business Innovation and Skills introduced legislation to increase tuition fees while reducing government spending on Higher Education in real terms and the University for the Creative Arts was revealed to be the fourth most-cut university in England with a cut of 7.8% (10.2% in real terms).

The University for the Creative Arts announced in February 2011 that it was discussing designating part of its Maidstone campus for use by MidKent College. Further to this, MidKent College expressed its willingness to buy the Maidstone campus from 2012 and phase out the UCA presence at the campus by 2014.

Eligibility criteria for the Early Bird International Scholarships at University for the Creative Arts

  • Applicants must have relevant academic backgrounds, work experience, and career interests.
  • Applicants must follow the given Language requirements of the university.
  • Applicants are required to follow the entry requirements of the University.

Eligible Countries: International

Type: Undergraduate, Graduate or PhD degree

Value of Award: £1,200 fee deduction for the first year

Number of Awards: Not Mentioned

Method of Application: Applicants for the Early Bird International Scholarships must apply for admission in an undergraduate degree course at the University for the Creative Arts.
