Welcome to Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), a leading international art college within the University of Edinburgh. Located in the historic Old Town of one of the world’s greatest cultural cities, we offer a creative and supportive environment in which to study one of 80 ground-breaking programmes or take forward research within a global Top 50 institution.
ECA graduates taking part in the RSA’s annual exhibition have been recognised with awards following the opening of the exhibition, including the prestigious £15,000 Glenfiddich Artist in Residence Award.
A new bequest from the estate of ECA alumni and former lecturers Dame Elizabeth Blackadder RSA and John Houston RSA OBE will fund an extensive programme of support for artists in Scotland, including new funding awards for ECA students.
Scottish Opera’s Breath Cycle project led by ECA's Dr Gareth Williams will continue to support people with Long COVID through singing and songwriting workshops, thanks to new Scottish Government health and social care funding.
