International work

The School of Arts and Creative Industries is proud of its international focus.  We welcome students from across the globe, boast a truly international curriculum and research, and provide students studying with us to pursue myriad opportunities for international study and projects around the world.

We offer articulation routes to our courses from partner institutions in China, India, the US, Canada, Sweden and France, and collaborative programmes in North America, Asia and Europe.

With over 1,700 students from more than 15 countries studying at our Merchiston campus, we’re a vibrant and cosmopolitan community in Scotland’s creative capital. We’re an outward facing school and believe having an international perspective gives our students, graduates and staff a creative edge.
