Learning Environment

The Premier of Ontario, Dalton Mcguinty, visits Canuhome with the Director of Design’s Luigi Ferrara.

At the School of Design, learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom. The school is located in the heart of the creative industry of downtown Toronto, giving you access to the cultural capital of Canada as well as unique resources and networking opportunities.  

The projects you’ll work on while attending the School of Design will challenge you, help you build work-ready skills, and push you to think outside the box. Students in the past have worked on projects like Canühome, a travelling exhibit that showcases a home environment that re-imagines how we may live in the future.

Some of the most important learning experiences you’ll have will take place outside the classroom. At the Institute without Boundaries, students work on projects of public and global significance with a focus on innovation through design. The Bike Charrette is an example of one of these projects. The college, the City of Toronto, community and cycling advocacy groups worked together to design a bike storage system for the existing and future campuses of George Brown College.

The School of Design is also one of the founding partners of Digifest, Toronto’s international festival celebrating innovation and digital creativity. In the fall, some of the world’s best designers, technologists and artists are brought together for an incredible learning experience. 

George Brown’s learning environment has a strong international component. In addition to sharing a classroom with international students from around the world you have several opportunities for international fieldwork and international field trips. You can also take advantage of academic pathways available to various education institutions overseas. The GBC curriculum benefits from our many global partnerships and our credentials are geared towards preparing you for the global marketplace.

Day-to-day our students interact with expert faculty and industry partners, giving you a leading edge in a competitive job market and invaluable networking opportunities. Workspaces within the school are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to prepare you for modern work environments. However learning doesn’t stop when class ends, we provide you with the chance to share your ideas and immerse yourself in creative projects. At the School of Design you have the freedom to shape your learning experience to achieve the career you want.
