The Glasgow School of Art

www.gsa.ac.uk

The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) is internationally recognised as one of Europe's leading university-level institutions for the visual creative disciplines. The GSA offers undergraduate and graduate level programmes across architecture, design, fine art, innovation and simulation and visualisation.

 

 

A 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 interdisciplinarity, peer learning, critical enquiry, experimentation and prototyping, helping to address many of the grand challenges confronting society and contemporary business.

Since the School was founded in 1845 as one of the first Government Schools of Design, as a centre of creativity promoting good design for the manufacturing industries, the role of the School has continually evolved and redefined to reflect the needs of the communities it is a part of, embracing in the late 19th century fine art and architecture education and today, digital technology. Then as now the purpose of the GSA remains the same - to contribute to a better world through developing creative approaches with new audiences.
