Many courses offer professional experience through placements. This means that by the time you graduate you’ll already have a CV to be proud of.

UCB is a small campus and our students enjoy a great level of contact time with tutors. Our current students say this is one of the best things about UCB and why they chose to study here rather than anywhere else.

We are also incredibly proud of our facilities. Our Music students can access industry-standard mixing desks and recording studios. With smaller class sizes there is no waiting around to use equipment. In the Film department you can get to grips with a motion sensor suit, HD cameras, Steadicam, professional green screen and editing suites.

Our Art students have access to workshops and studios dedicated to different disciplines. Animal Management students study at our working farm and Sports students can make use of the great facilities at Honeywell Sports Village.

Barnsley itself is a student friendly, vibrant town with great nightlife. Barnsley is located a short drive from Sheffield and Leeds, close to both the M1 motorway and some of the UK’s most spectacular countryside.
