Art, Media and Design


Nurture your creative talents and pursue a rewarding career with the dynamic art, media and design degree courses at the University Centre Weston (UCW).  Our art, media and design courses don't just train you, they promote alternative ways of thinking, making and communicating; they provide you with space, tools and inspiration to develop your creative practice and a clear career path.  

UCW offers a highly creative and vibrant range of courses, led by staff who are practising artists, designers, makers, photographers, critics, writers and film production specialists. So, you will get expert teaching from active practitioners and researchers who will encourage you to adopt innovative and resourceful approaches that both perceive and create opportunities for better lives.

You’ll develop your creative practice whilst interacting with your peers in well-equipped studios, making and digital workshops. At the same time, you'll learn professional skills by working on applied briefs facilitated through our links with commercial clients, cultural institutions, businesses and organisations.

Creative Arts embrace inclusivity and diversity, allowing individuals to express themselves whilst facilitating modes of self-advocacy and communication. As a result, the arts act as a tool for cultural exchange, education and expression. Working in Creative Arts allow people to engage with all of their senses and emotions, whilst stimulating the mind and body, which nurtures the potential of innovative new projects. Here at University Centre Weston, we encourage individuality, embrace expression and champion inclusion.
