Our events are provided either by ECA, or are in collaboration with other institutions. Throughout the year we offer different events, which will suit a variety of students at differing stages of the application process, so whether you are interested in finding out more about what is available to study at a higher level, or wanting support to develop your portfolio, we have something available to suit your needs.
Access to Creative Education in Scotland (ACES) is a project for school students in S4-S6 who are interested in studying a visual creative subject, such as art, design or architecture, at university.
We work with our students to support their creative development, explore their future options and help them create a competitive application.

LEAPS Creative Extras
This is a week-long event hosted by LEAPS (Lothians Equal Access Programme for Schools). We are actively involved in the Creative Extras week, alongside Queen Margaret, Edinburgh Napier and Heriot-Watt universities, offering practical workshops, application support through personal statement advice and portfolio development.
This week is a great opportunity to enhance your experience, portfolio, and ultimately your university application.
