Building Dreams

A €17 million investment has created a new home for YAADA. Phase one was completed in early 2021, with work on the final phase starting shortly afterwards. This state of the art, collaborative environment is where our creative students will spend most, if not all, of their time.

Space to Grow

Time to design and create, play a key role in our courses. Dedicated studio spaces and specialist facilities give students the opportunity to fully express themselves. It is this environment that has seen our students win National and Global awards, in areas such as Design and Interior Architecture.

Visitors & Visiting

Guest lecturers have included laureates, artists and industry experts, who have delivered unforgettable workshops to our students. Annual field trips to design cities such as Lisbon and Rome provide a first-hand experience of everything from cutting-edge contemporary design to world famous galleries.
