Art Schools are places of passion and vitality. They are places where great ideas are forged, as well as places of intense debate. Cardiff School of Art & Design is part of that tradition. We are a leading Art School in a European Capital city and we are as passionate about Art, Design and Architecture today as we have ever been.

Our students share our commitment to continue the vitality of the Art School into the future. No one has a stake in the future more than students, that’s why we put you, at the centre of everything we do. Whether it is the teaching, the research or the social life of the School, we design everything with students and the future sustainability of art and design in mind.

Studying for a degree at Cardiff School of Art & Design is a demanding experience. We want everything we create in our School to be of the highest quality. We believe you will make the most of it, getting as much out of it as you put in and helping to continue our real reputation for real excellence.

Through your own creativity and research and hard work, you will be on the way to a professional career as an artist or designer or architect, or perhaps to further study towards a postgraduate degree and even a doctorate. Almost all of our staff are practicing artists and designers and have extensive experience of working in industry, they are working at the leading edge of research in our disciplines and are experienced and committed to education too. It is little wonder that our staff and student retention rates are so high: once here, people chose to stay.
