Burren College of Art

Ballyvaghan, Ireland
As an international College we believe that studying abroad is an incomparable experience. It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to live the life of another country, learn the customs of another culture and adapt to new surroundings. The success of a student’s experience depends to a large extent upon their own efforts to acclimatise to living and studying in a foreign country.

About

History

Founded in 1993 by Michael Greene and Mary Hawkes-Greene, to give student artists the opportunity to develop their creative potential in the unique environment of the Burren, the Burren College of Art has grown rapidly to an institution of international standing.

Education

To date, the core of the Burren experience has been the education of artists, with ecology, law, archaeology, business, leadership and other subjects as background elements. Our new vision unites these disciplines and aims to connect creativity to all academic disciplines through our centre for creative learning.

Student Life

Campus life

Life here for students is unlike that of city college campuses. At BCA students fully integrate with village life, becoming recognised members of the local community and often forging strong bonds and friendships that last beyond graduation. Students coming from large cities may be struck by the stillness and unhurried pace of the area. It can be amazing how much of our lives is taken up in traffic, noise and bustle. At BCA it takes 5 minutes to get from housing to your studio - allowing for an undisturbed creative environment.
