About Edinburgh College of Art
ECA is a vibrant and creative community of students and academics: a place of experimentation, exploration, intellectual stimulation and exciting collaborations.
We enjoy an international reputation for the quality of our teaching and research across the disciplines of art, design, architecture and landscape architecture, history of art and music.
Tracing our history back to the 1770s, we remain at the forefront of teaching and research, ideally placed to engage with the challenges of the future. Our home within the University of Edinburgh makes us distinctive, offering many opportunities to benefit from the diverse range of expertise and resources associated with one of the world's leading academic institutions.
Edinburgh has one of the UK’s longest-established and largest groups of art historians. All are researching and publishing at the highest levels. They take public engagement extremely seriously, and many have major public profiles.
The city, a UNESCO World Heritage is the home of some of Europe’s most valuable art collections, while it is an important and developing centre for contemporary art, and digital media, especially gaming. You can find our graduates in leadership roles in the arts worldwide: all over the world they curate exhibitions, write about art, and shape culture. Edinburgh is where those careers start.
