Overall
The university, facilities are rather excellent due to the wide range of design and art departments. The printing studios offer many techniques of printing, including goccko, screenprint, risograph, fabric printing. You can mix media using the glass department, sculpture, and many others. The teachers are always very friendly and happy to help. Although at times I feel we are not informed enough about events and how to succeed after graduation.  The students wary from nice to.. internalized. There are a lot of events to explore but often I have noticed the participants are in somewhat closed off circles.

ABOUT
Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) is an art, design, creative and performing arts school in Edinburgh, the oldest and largest in Scotland, providing higher education in art and design, architecture, history of art and music disciplines for over two thousand University of Edinburgh students. ECA has an international reputation as one of the most successful art colleges in Europe; its stated mission is to promote critical inquiry through scholarly research, learning, teaching and education in creative practice.[5] ECA is a School in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Edinburgh and comprises five subject areas: School of Art, Reid School of Music, School of Design, School of History of Art, Edinburgh School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture (ESALA).[6] ECA is mainly located in the Old Town of Edinburgh, overlooking the Grassmarket; the Lauriston Place campus is located in the University of Edinburgh's Central Area Campus, not far from George Square. It was ranked 1st in Art and Design in the UK in The Complete University Guide 2012. The college was founded in 1760, and gained its present name and site in 1907. Formerly associated with Heriot-Watt University, its degrees have been issued by the University of Edinburgh since 2004. The College formally merged with the University on 1 August 2011, combining with the School of Arts, Culture and Environment and continues to exist with the name Edinburgh College of Art as an enlarged school in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. As a result, the new Edinburgh College of Art comprises not only Art, Design, Architecture and Landscape Architecture, but also History of Art and Music.[7][8] In September 2011 Professor Chris Breward became Principal of Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) and Vice Principal Creative Industries & Performing Arts of the University of Edinburgh.[
