If you are interested in any of the postgraduate programmes that we have on offer at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), you may also be interested in seeing our facilities and studios. We have a variety of options to visit, which are listed below, and are spread throughout the year so there should be a time that suits you.

Open Days

Open Day 2014

Join ECA at one of the University-wide postgraduate Open Days in November. These allow you to meet with academic staff, attend a range of talks by academics and student services (such as Admissions, Student Finance and Accommodation Services), and take a student-led tour of the ECA facilities outside of teaching time.

The next postgraduate open day will be:

If you would like to view our facilities virtually, you can explore the studios, libraries and performance spaces across the campus online.

Student-led tours

Student-led tours

Join a student led tour of the ECA campus (available for Art, Design, Architecture and Landscape Architecture, and Music). Students interested in History of Art, or who want to see the wider University campus can also attend a George Square campus tour which includes the central campus teaching facilities, unions and Main Library.

Art and Design tours leave from the Main Building foyer at 11:00, Architecture tours leave from the Minto House foyer at 11:00, and Music tours leave from Alison House at 11:00 (see map below). Tour length varies depending on numbers and level of interest, but usually last around 1 hour.

Please note that we are unable to include the Film and TV department in the Art and Design tours, due to staff availability and class scheduling. If you are interested in this area, we strongly recommend that you attend one of the postgraduate Open Days, where you will be able to view the facilities and meet with members of staff.

UK and European events

Throughout the year, the University of Edinburgh attends a number of events across the UK and Europe so we can speak with you where you are.
