University of the Creative Arts has been nothing but outstanding - especially within Fashion Management and Marketing. The course has allowed me to flourish beyond my own beliefs. Each and every member of staff goes above and beyond to provide guidance, whilst working around the clock, taking serious care in each and every student on the course. As the staff are so invested within all of the students, a very positive and beneficial working environment is created.

UCA Rochester campus is overall a great university experience. The place is well designed indoors, a spectacular view from the cafe floor, which has just been renowed, a 9-floor plan serving each course or related courses its own storey, 4 lower and 4 upper floors, light, bright brick walls, huge windows and a lot of light which helps in the learning process. They've got several clubs, Student Union takes big part in improving the university experience for students. I'd say they've done a terrific job so far. Academic-wise the ratings keep growing, one of top 20 in the UK within arts categories. The staff are helpful, always open and available for advice, very motivating and pushing students to their full potential which is what we need. Students come from everywhere, international and people are always open to communication.
