The GSA is internationally recognised as one of Europe's leading university-level institutions for the visual creative disciplines. Their studio-based approach to research and teaching, brings disciplines together to explore problems in new ways to find new innovative solutions. The studio creates the environment for inter-disciplinarity, peer learning, critical enquiry, experimentation and prototyping, helping to addressing many of the grand challenges confronting society and contemporary business.

Since the School was founded in 1845 our role has continually evolved and redefined itself to reflect the needs of the communities we are part of, embracing in the late 19th century fine art and architecture education and today, digital technology. Then as now our purpose remains the same - to contribute to a better world through creative education and research.

With a proven history of producing some of the world's most influential and successful creative practitioners, the GSA's studio-based, practice-led education draws talented individuals with a shared passion for visual culture from all over the world.

Many students choose to remain in Glasgow after graduation because of the unique network of creative people, spaces and organisations in the city, and are joined by artists, designers, architects, writers and musicians from around the world who are drawn here by the quality of life and the clear sense of creative opportunity.
