The Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture offers programs in seven creative disciplines, expanding these fields beyond their traditional boundaries through internal and external collaborations. It has a strong focus on sustainability and relevance, and engages actively with the dynamism, creativity and diversity of many cities in the country in imagining new approaches to art and design education. Equipped with state-of-the art, custom-built facilities, the Faculty is staffed by highly regarded academics, artists and designers.

We believe that you learn best by trying things out and experiencing them for yourself. We call this hands-on approach ‘thinking through making’.

Part of a modern university with an international reputation and connections and as such we have a wealth of cutting edge facilities and resources. We have one of the best 3D workshops in the country! The philosophy we try to adopt here at East London University is that of blending traditional skills and expertise with the latest technology. Over recent years we have invested over R. 170million in facilities and resources to support that focus.

Our staff are practitioners in their specialisms so you’ll be taught by professionals and we have a wealth of industry connections and partners
