Art Courses in Canada

Studying Art in Canada

International students applying to study Art in Canada must choose the right university or Arts school in accordance to the specific art form you wish to learn. Each art school has different equipments and specialisations to help you learn.

Studio-based work is central to all Art courses and can include painting, sculpture, installation, printing, photography and digital media, with students specialising in their own area of interest. Universities often invite professional artists and critics to talk to students and also include a public display of final year students' art along with the professional artists’ studio works.

Graduate Art Careers

Art graduates will move into careers in multimedia, publishing, advertising, museums, galleries, fashion, and the film industry, doing a wide range of roles which can include photography, illustration, graphic design, interior design and website design.

Art Entry Requirements

Entry requirements vary for each Canadian university, but international students will need an IELTS score of 6.5 overall, no lower than 6.0 in each component, and an International Baccalaureate score of 34 points. A personal portfolio of work is a must and some art schools prefer prior knowledge of the history of art and related subjects.
