UCA is home to over 6,000 creative students, and we know them better than anyone.
The average student spend per year is over £13,000, making the total market worth a massive £30 billion per year†. Moving away from home means that students are making decisions alone for the very first time about which brands they prefer, and where to spend their money. Our students are all creative, allowing precise targeting for your business.
