About The Cass
The Cass at London Metropolitan University is internationally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent facilities and unique interdisciplinary opportunities.
Learning through practice, playing with process and working with clients, students at The Cass gain real world experience in both individual and collaborative projects, engaging with professionals, communities and companies. There is a strong emphasis in our studios on socially engaged architecture, art and design applied to both local and global contexts, and many projects focus on London.
Our central London location also gives you easy access to the creative and cultural hub which surrounds the Aldgate campus. Our many specialist facilities include wood and metal workshops, laboratories, TV and recording studios, editing suites, darkrooms and Metropolitan Works, our digital manufacturing centre.
Many of our students have exhibited at major international exhibitions and festivals and have won prestigious awards.
The Faculty is now structured around what we call the 'Casses'. These are new and bridge between our studios and the three schools of art, architecture and design. Casses are strong subject or support areas. Currently there are nine academic Casses (see right), surrounded and supported by three support areas, Projects, Works and Culture.
