The School of Creative Art’s origins go back over 125 years to an art college in St. Albans. A merger between the University of Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire College of Art and Design in the 1990s added to its creative credentials. Today it is a thriving School that houses wonderful studios for art, photography, multimedia, graphic, and product design classes including well-equipped workshops for metalwork, woodwork, plastics, and fabrics. The computer resources offer a wealth of opportunity for 3D modelling, multimedia design and work with sound, video and animation. 

The School has important international ties and its reputation abroad is very high. It aims to help students become independent, goal-oriented and resourceful practitioners who know the history of design and are well prepared for work in the creative industries.
