Calling all students! Recently announced on myUCA - just in case you missed it!
'Following the outstanding news that the University has been awarded the title of Modern University of the Year 2019 in the Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide, we are inviting all Undergraduate students to spread the good news by introducing a friend to UCA for September 2019.
>> A modern approach to co-creating our community with our students
Starting from the 1st November 2018, if you know someone you think would be a good fit for UCA to enrol in September 2019 on to any Undergraduate course, the University will be offering £350 per enrolee (up to a maximum of 4 enrolees) to current Undergraduate students* every time someone they have referred joins the institution following a successful application.
Increasing our creative community by bringing the best talent to UCA will be hugely important in maintaining our quality of teaching, student experience and developing our facilities over the next decade. We believe that our current students are the most likely people to have friends and family that would be perfectly placed at UCA to have an incredible creative career in the area of creative arts, business and technology.
The award will be made to you as a current student when your enrolee has completed their first term at UCA following enrolment in September 2019.
How to introduce a friend
If there is someone you’d like to introduce, all they need to do is ensure your full name and UCA Student Number are included during the application process*, citing you as their contact at the University and validating you as a referee. If your friend(s) should go on to enrol and join UCA in September 2019, you will be recognised as having acted as an advocate and helping the University to directly find the next generation of UCA students.
By committing to working with our current students to co-create our future student community, we believe that students should share in the benefits of keeping more of the University’s funding within the community and spending less on speculative advertising, promotion and events.
We hope that this will enhance the experience of both our current students, future students and the wider community to bring networks of friends together across years that remain long into our graduates’ careers.
So spread the word in your own way and help the University to bring the best new talent to our campuses in 2019!'
