ACES Resources

The Access to Creative Education in Scotland (ACES) resources page provides an overview of the application process to visual creative degrees and directs to useful websites for further research and portfolio development. The resources can be used by any S4 to S6 student and their supporters – not just those signed up to ACES Edinburgh or eligible for the programme.
