01 June 2011
New BA Honours Degree courses in Creative Arts, Drama and an MA in Community Arts will be available at University Centre Folkestone from September this year.
The new courses are in addition to the wide range of performing and creative art courses already available at UCF, which include BA Honours in Creative and Professional Writing, Technical Theatre, Visual Arts and Design and Dance Education.
The University is holding an Open Day on Saturday, 11 June, 10.00 am - 2.00 pm for anyone interested in applying for September 2011 or 2012 entry. The open day represents the perfect opportunity to look around the campus and meet academic staff to discuss the opportunities available.
Yvonne McCann is one of the first to graduate from the BA Honours Visual Arts and Design course. She said: “University Centre Folkestone is a superb place to study, with a lively atmosphere and a stunning building right in the heart of the rejuvenated Creative Quarter. It is the perfect place to build links with the creative community, take part in the International Arts Festival of the Folkestone Triennial, and get involved in art projects.”
Chris Price, Campus Director at UCF, said: “At a recent awards ceremony to recognise the talent and achievement of our students, they spoke of how university had given them experiences and opportunities they would not have gained by themselves. It was evidence that our work at the University Centre Folkestone is helping to change lives and provide brighter futures.
”We’re keen to welcome those interested in exploring our Creative Arts subjects and we are certain that our curriculum has something of interest to any prospective students.”
Also on offer from 2012 will be a new degree, the BA Honours in Arts Management. More details on this and all the other courses will be available at the Open day.
The open day will takes place on Saturday 11 June, between 10am and 2pm at University Centre Folkestone, Mill Bay, Kent CT20 1JG. For more information and to book a place, please contact Jane Seaman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01303 760 600.
