More than nine out of ten OCAD U grads are employed

OCAD University is Canada’s biggest art and design university. We’re a world-famous hub for art, design, digital media, research, innovation and creativity. The stereotypes aren’t true — art and design grads are driving Canada’s new creative economy.

We’re located in downtown Toronto next to the Art Gallery of Ontario. Our campus is easily accessible by transit and surrounded by safe, walkable neighbourhoods. From small class sizes to technical support in all our shops and studios, our students are more than just a number.

More than nine out of ten OCAD U alumni are employed, and almost the same number have been their own boss. Our grads work in everything from city planning and advertising to community development, photography and interior design. We survey our grads often and 82% say they were employed six months after graduation. With an OCAD U degree, many graduates go on to complete graduate degrees in fields as diverse as architecture, law and education.

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