Worried about sending your kid to art and design school? Don’t be!

We’ve heard all the myths about the employment options for our grads – they aren’t true.

OCAD University is Canada’s biggest and oldest art and design university and more than 94% of our grads are employed. They work in everything from city planning to marketing, IT, illustration and interior design. The skills they learn here are transferable to many different kinds of careers just like any other bachelor’s degree like history or political science.

Just like any other university, we provide a supportive and fun campus life experience. Our campus includes a medical centre, library, plenty of chill-out space, food court and opportunities for intramural sports and social events.

We’re located in downtown Toronto’s Entertainment District and next to Queen Street West, the Art Gallery of Ontario and beautiful Grange Park. With small class sizes and technical staff in all our shops and studios, our students are more than just a number.

OCAD U has more than 4,500 students and 17 undergraduate programs. Field placement and internship opportunities are available in almost every program.

The world needs the talent of your kids — they belong here! Come visit us and see for yourself how your child can develop their skills and learn how to get paid doing what they love.
