ECA offers an unparalleled student experience by opening up a breadth of possibilities to study in, and across, five schools:  Architecture and Landscape Architecture; Art; Design; History of Art; and Music. We are part of the University of Edinburgh, renowned for innovative teaching, learning and research and located in the heart of one of the world’s great cultural cities. We are at the fulcrum of creative and critical endeavour, with excellent links to the creative industries. We are proud to offer 4-year undergraduate degrees of optimum flexibility and scope for interdisciplinarity across the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

At ECA, we invest in our undergraduates from application to alumnus. We encourage a mix of teaching and learning styles and provide wonderful workshop and studio facilities, world-leading lectures and seminars. Our programmes are taught by eminent, energetic and engaged researchers interested in advancing their subject areas and questioning the past, present and future of their discipline. Culture is a conversation in which we want our students to participate and we foster a spirit of independent thinking within a close community.
