Creative Futures Academy

CFA is a space where some journeys begin and others evolve, allowing learners at all stages of their career to explore creative, flexible and collaborative learning.

We are a unique collaborative partnership between NCAD, IADT and UCD. Through direct engagement with industry experts, CFA identifies future skills and knowledge needed to create a sustainable and vibrant creative and cultural sector. Our courses focus on the creative industries in Ireland today, including digital and screen culture, media, literature, broadcasting, art, design, and fashion. We offer a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses; many delivered in hybrid formats to suit professionals and creative practitioners looking to upskill or be inspired. 

From January 2023, CFA will be rolling out a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses. To take the next step in your journey check out what’s on offer and visit for further updates.
