Information, Advice and Guidance >

Welcome to the Widening Participation Information, Advice and Guidance page. Our team can provide eligible pupils with impartial information, advice and guidance. Our job is to see young people progressing into creative courses at any Scottish College or University - not just those on offer at GSA. 

We provide information to our young people in the following ways:

  • by e-mail to those registered on our mailing list
  • online via our website and social media
  • through attendance at in-schools careers events
  • at our organised activities on campus
  • one-to-one by appointment

Language used in relation to Art, Design and Architecture courses is not always straight-foward! The WP team is more than happy to help our young people interpret any resources which may be difficult to get to grips with. We promise that if we can't help you directly, we'll point you to someone who can. Any questions about creative courses at College or University can be put to our team at:

  • 0141 353 4407
  • 0141 353 4436

And we know sometimes making decisions after looking at all the information available can be tricky! We seek to help our young people explore a range of options, in relation to their own individual needs and circumstances and to make decisions about their next steps. 

We pride ourselves on making sure that our information, advice and guidance is completely impartial, transparent and accessible to all. We will ensure that all registered participants have the opportunity to access our support and that anything discussed with our team will be treated in the strictest confidence.
