Why choose us?

You’ll join a passionate community of designers, with the opportunity to focus on your particular design field, as well as to collaborate across a broad range of disciplines.
Taught by leading practitioners and theorists, you’ll be supported in responding to live briefs, showcasing your work, and entering high-profile competitions.
Our city is a world-leading centre of knowledge in science, engineering and innovation. We are at the heart of this network, working closely with key partners.
You’ll be able to take courses from across the University of Edinburgh, using both traditional and digital facilities, and world-class libraries, museums and collections.
We are educating not only problem-solvers, but opportunity-seekers. Our students become the designers / thinkers / makers who positively shape the world we inhabit.
