Rigorous career preparation takes place in the historic, UNESCO-award-winning former North Kowloon Magistracy Building, a grand courthouse restored and rehabilitated by SCAD-home to SCAD Hong Kong. This newest SCAD location has become a thriving member of the city's academic community, having received approval by the Hong Kong Education Bureau for the registration of its 21 course offerings.

SCAD Hong Kong students regularly collaborate with global brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Audemars Piguet and Makedo, and they participate in the city's many cultural events, including the Hong Kong Film Festival and the Hong Kong International Art Fair.
