Finn O'Neill runs the rule over the plethora of advertising school options for aspiring creatives and compiles a global top 10 list.

Finding a list of different advertising schools for aspiring creatives shouldn’t be as hard as it currently proves to be. Having scoured the internet looking at the different options available to me, I realised that there is a huge variety in advertising schools and it would be hugely beneficial to compile a list of them. This is by no means a complete global list of advertising schools, there are certainly plenty in North America which I haven’t covered, however, it should prove a helpful and informative starting block for people seeking to develop their skills as creatives. Many universities offer bachelor degrees in marketing, however I wanted a list of schools which focus mainly on the copywriting and art directing side of creative advertising.
