About Edinburgh College of Art
Edinburgh College of Art has an international reputation as one of the most successful independent art colleges in the UK. We have won that reputation by offering the highest quality of experience for our students and staff, and by providing a learning environment, which is both supportive and challenging. The College is known for its creativity, its co-operative atmosphere and its people; one recent graduate described the College as an ideas factory.
They have excellent facilities, but the ideas which continually drive and refresh their education are even more important. Their staff are practising artists, designers, architects, curators and writers, many with international reputations. Edinburgh College of Art graduates move into an extraordinarily wide range of careers and make a real contribution to the social, cultural and economic life of Scotland, the UK, and many other countries. Added to this, the degrees are validated and awarded by the University of Edinburgh, internationally recognised as a leading academic institution.
Edinburgh College of Art attracts students of the highest quality from throughout the UK, Europe and the World. Students want to study here and applications have continued to rise significantly in recent years. The atmosphere is truly international, with over one in five of our students coming from overseas. Over 70 different countries are represented in our student community. In Edinburgh they find a unique setting for research and study. They have access to world-class resources in a city celebrated for its vibrant creative and cultural environment. We hope that you will join them.
