Massey University College of Creative Arts, Toi Rauwharangi, is a world-class art and design school. It has been part of the creative capital for 128 years, dating back to Arthur Riley's founding of the Wellington School of Design in 1886.

The college teaches internationally recognised programmes in fine art and design, from certificate-level to PhD. From 2015, it will add creative media production and commercial music to its degree offerings.

College staff members continue to work as artists and designers, many with international reputations. 84% of college academics are active researchers.

Making up half of Massey University’s combined Wellington campus, the college contributes an estimated $237.5 million annually and 416 full-time equivalent jobs to the Wellington regional economy. College alumni have a multi-billion dollar impact on the global economy.

Around 400 students graduate from the college each year, and many of them go on to make an extraordinary contribution worldwide, says Pro Vice Chancellor Claire Robinson.

"We're very proud of people like Daniel Coster, whose design work at Apple has revolutionised the way people communicate and do business - he holds over 500 design patents. And then there's Sir Richard Taylor at Weta Workshop, Matt Holmes at Nike Global, Mark Elmore who's with Fisher & Paykel Appliances and Rebecca Taylor, making a name as a fashion designer in New York. The list goes on, and long may it keep going on!"
