University for the Creative Arts

Program Type: Exchange

The University for the Creative Arts, Farnham (UCA, Farnham), located in the picturesque Surrey countryside, was formed through the Kent Institute and the Surrey Institute, both public multi-campus art & design institutes. UCA Farnham offers degree programs up to the doctorate level in 14 area subjects in every creative specialty ranging from architectural design to digital media and marketing to performing arts. Farnham is a step back in time, with its own 12th century castle, cobbled streets, and a Georgian marketplace with independent shops, art galleries and craft festivals.

Health Insurance

FIT requires all students to be covered in the U.S. and internationally for the duration of their study abroad program. Two types of coverage are required:

1. FIT requires students to be covered abroad for the duration of their program. This policy is mandatory, therefore students cannot waive it.

  • Coverage abroad: UHC Study Abroad Insurance
    *Students will be enrolled and account will be billed before start of program. More detailed information about coverage and claims processes will be provided post-approval.

2. FIT requires students to be covered in the U.S. for the duration of their program. Students may waive the Haylor insurance using the standard waiver process if they already have a U.S. based insurance policy with equal or better coverage.
