Creative Arts Summer School

Creative Arts Summer School is a part of the Leinster Pillar 1 of the PATH programme via the Higher Education Authority. It includes The National College of Art and Design (NCAD), University College Dublin (UCD), Trinity College Dublin (TCD), IADT and the Marino Institute of Education and Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (RCSI). Each year over 60 students from under-represented backgrounds attend a day run by each HEI respectively. The Summer School will run for one week in July each year and will seek to:
  • Raise awareness of the range of creative qualifications on offer in Dublin
  • Promote an understanding of the types of employment opportunities within evolving creative industries
  • Engage Creative Arts Ambassadors/Mentors from partner HEIs and the creative industries
  • Engage potential students through the delivery of diverse art forms and workshops
  • Provide advice on admissions, entry requirements and progression pathways in HEIs
  • Promote an awareness of the financial, academic and wellbeing supports available
Sixty places will be available annually, with each HEI hosting activities for one day. Each day will involve creative arts workshops, student centred activities, seminars, and opportunities for open discussion on harnessing pathways to Creative Arts courses at higher level. Recruitment is centralised out of NCAD and takes place in the Spring of each year. Watch a video on the Creative Arts Summer School.
