The Glasgow School of Art is internationally recognised as one of Europe's foremost higher education institutions for creative education and research in fine art, design and architecture.
A creative hothouse. A small, concentrated community of committed, creative people bound together by a shared visual language and a concern for visual culture.
At the heart of one of Europe's most influential and creative artistic communities providing an energetic environment in which new ideas can flourish.
Producers of mature, confident graduates through education in fine art, design and architecture, which is practice based, face-to-face, professionally oriented and socially engaged.
Researchers that influence world culture by generating new knowledge through creativity and conceptual thinking.
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, our role has continually evolved and redefined 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 vision remained the same - to provide world-class creative education and research in architecture, design and fine art that makes a significant cultural, social and economic contribution.
