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.
