University for the creative arts advertising and brand communication

Course overview:

With our comprehensive Advertising course, you’ll learn to tackle challenging briefs both creatively and strategically, using the latest tools and processes. You’ll develop a deep understanding of how theory and practice are linked together in real-world scenarios.

Our aim is to teach you ways in which to become a creative problem causer and thinker; we want you to understand and deploy strategies that are focused and creative, becoming an independent, intelligent professional with the ability to grow and reflect.

We’ll encourage you to explore outwardly, collaborating with fellow students to create fresh, attention-grabbing creative projects across a range of platforms. Within the wider UCA community you’ll find insight and knowledge from fellow artists in other disciplines such as fine artists, photographers, illustrators, filmmakers, poets, playwrights, novelists, fashion designers and architects.

Throughout the course you’ll work to build specific skills in critical analysis, research, production and communication appropriate to the advertising industry, whilst also developing your creative and strategic thinking abilities.

Equipped with a fantastic library and excellent support services, our Farnham campus provides the ideal environment for this course – close enough to London’s leading ad agencies and mentors to gain valuable industry knowledge and experience but set in an inspiring and creative environment surrounded by like-minded people.
