The Glasgow School of Art
Founded in 1845, the Glasgow School of Art is internationally recognised as one of Europe's leading higher education institutions for education and research in the visual creative disciplines. Its studio-based approach to research and teaching, brings disciplines together to explore problems in new ways to find new innovative solutions. This approach creates the environment for inter-disciplinarity, peer learning, critical enquiry, experimentation and prototyping, helping to address many of the grand challenges confronting society and contemporary business.

It offers an environment in which difference is encouraged and diversity of background and approach is valued.
