A specialized art and design institution in the south of England is called the University for the Creative Arts. When the Kent Institute of Art and Design merged with the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, which already had degree-granting status, it was created in 2005 as University College for the Creative Arts at Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham, Maidstone, and Rochester. Both constituent schools were created by joining the local art schools in Kent and Surrey, respectively. In 2008, it received university status, and the current name was adopted. It united with the Open College of the Arts in 2016.
Several modest art schools that were founded in the nineteenth century in the English counties of Surrey and Kent are where the University for the Creative Arts got its start. The earliest of them was Guildford School of Art, established in Surrey in 1856, and Maidstone College of Art, established in Kent in 1867. Many of these tiny art schools combined throughout the second part of the 20th century, resulting in the establishment of the Surrey Institute of Art & Design in 1995 and the Kent Institute of Art & Design in 1987, respectively.
The University College for the Creative Arts in Canterbury, Epsom, Farnham, Maidstone, and Rochester was formed in 2005 as a result of the merger of these two organizations. The Privy Council gave full university status to the University College for the Creative Arts in May 2008, and the University for the Creative Arts formally adopted its current name in September 2008.
