Academic Year 2020/21 – schools information

Cardiff School of Art and Design (CSAD)

Our plans for the academic year focus on ensuring the health and wellbeing of our student and staff community. From October students will have greater control over the when and the where of their learning with the chance to utilise the latest educational technology to enhance their learning experience through both on and off-line learning.
Our programmes will include guided sessions, enhanced group working opportunities, and ‘real-time’ and ‘on-demand’ flexibility for learning and creating. Technical support will be available, and no student will be placed at a disadvantage.

CSAD has one of the most adaptable buildings on campus, and social distancing measures introduced prior to lockdown are being revised to make sure we can provide as much access as possible to studios, workshops and learning spaces.

We will, as we have always done, continue to work with our students to ensure that creativity can flourish, in an inspiring and safe environment.

We will be in contact through the summer with students and applicants with further information.
