If you’re thinking of joining us in 2021, it’s not too late.

Maybe you’ve changed your mind about your plans for the year, the course you want to study, or you didn’t quite get the results you were expecting.

Whatever your reason, clearing is an opportunity to achieve your ambition to study and it’s easy to apply as its managed by UCAS.

Clearing opens on 5 July 2021 but we also accept direct applications from students progressing internally within HCA or from students wishing to transfer from another College/University. Check out the ‘Apply now’ section on our course pages for details of how to apply or contact the Registry Team for further guidance by emailing registry@hca.ac.uk

As a specialist art college we are not just about grades – we look at your portfolio, passions and personality to see if we are right for each other.

If you want to join a close-knit creative community, home to people from all different backgrounds then we may be the right college for you.

“I love that you are not being forced to conform to a certain style or medium within crafts. You work with concepts and mediums that resonate with you and your personal practice. The tutors work with you so that you can develop the skills you need for your practice. It is a very personal and progressive way of learning. Different to what I previously experienced at Falmouth.”

BA (Hons) Contemporary Design Craft graduate
