For over 140 years we have been preparing artistic people, just like you, for amazing careers in the creative industries. Cleveland College of Art & Design (CCAD) is the only specialist art and design school in the North East.

We have a brilliant reputation for being a fun, friendly and an inspirational place to learn.
Our tutors are outstanding. Between them, they all have vast industry experience and many are practising artists and designers. Their skills and knowledge, coupled with our superb facilities, makes for an exceptional atmosphere allowing students to thrive.
We offer students superb value for money. They receive excellent tutor contact time, which is almost double that offered by most other institutions.

Students at CCAD benefit from a unique experience and one which is very different from a city-based university. And we provide some of the most competitive accommodation rates in the country.We are based in a distinctive part of the UK. Hartlepool is a vibrant coastal town offering students a wealth of attractions and artistic inspiration. To demonstrate this, every image in this prospectus has been taken within the region.
