Overview

The Advertising programme at the University for the Creative Arts continues to develop a mentoring scheme, giving you the chance to enter the industry as a valued professional. 

The UK advertising economy is one of the most sophisticated and dynamic in the world. Our aim is to teach you to learn how to become a creative problem causer and thinker – to lead advertising rather than to follow. We want you to understand and unfold strategies that are focused and creative, becoming an independent, intelligent professional with the ability to grow and reflect.  

Opportunities

We’ll encourage you to work alongside fellow students on the course to create fresh and attention-grabbing projects across a range of platforms. Within the wider UCA community you’ll find insight and knowledge from fellow artists in other exciting disciplines such as graphic designers, journalists, musicians and fashion designers. 

You will work to build specific skills in critical analysis, research, production and communication appropriate to the advertising industry, whilst also developing your resourceful and strategic thinking abilities. Our mentoring scheme is supported by some of the world’s best known creative directors – including Rory Sutherland – giving you the opportunity to enter the world of advertising and marketing professionally trained. 

By the end of the course, you'll have built your own unique book of holistic ad campaigns, showcasing high levels of creativity in art direction, copywriting and digital media. With our comprehensive curriculum, you’ll learn how to tackle challenging briefs whilst developing a critical, conceptual and contextual understanding of advertising.
