What our students say...
I initially did a night class at Edinburgh College in Studio Photography and I was so impressed with the facilities and standard of teaching. The best thing about learning at Edinburgh College has been the lecturers with their passion for what they do and the support they offer, as well as all the facilities and the like-minded students I have been lucky to go through this journey with – we all support each other.Jennifer - Photography
I originally came to PASS hearing good things about the acting courses and then, over the years, moved to the dance courses feeling that I was better suited for them. I’ve had an incredible five years at PASS. It’s been hard work and I’ve had really hard times but if you’re willing to do the work it can be an amazing experience.Nichole - Performing Arts
Edinburgh College seemed to be a perfect pathway to nourish my development and forge new connections within the Art and Design community.Katherine - Art and Design
