Art + Design - Edinburgh College of Art

The Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), is one of 21 Schools housed at the University of Edinburgh, located in the heart of Scotland’s capital of Edinburgh. As a student you will join a community of practicing artists, writers, critics and curators working across visual, material, and sensual culture.

Art students have access to a foundry and casting room, metal workshop, painting studios, printmaking suite, and wood workshop.
