Welcome to Degree Show 2018

Welcome to The Glasgow School of Art's Degree Show 2018 online, a preview of the annual exhibition of work by final year undergraduate and postgraduate students from the schools of Architecture, Design and Fine Art. 

Each year some 600 undergraduate and postgraduate students challenge and delight us with their insight, rigour and innovation. Over 25,000 visitors join us annually for the Degree Show - one of the UK's largest. Here in our virtual exhibition space, and via Flickr and Vimeo, you can experience a taste of just some of the work on show this year from across our specialisms of fine art, design, innovation, and architecture.

This year the Degree Show takes place across several venues - the School of Design and Innovation School shows are housed in the Reid Building on Renfrew Street; the Mackintosh School of Architecture show takes place in the Bourdon Building (diagonally opposite the Reid Building); and the Tontine campus in the Merchant City hosts the Fine Art show. The Master of Fine Art show takes place from 31 May at The Glue Factory, just a short walk from Garnethill. Running concurrently to Degree Show, work by students from our Widening Participation and Portfolio Preparation programmes is on show at Fleming House on Renfrew Street.

This year, Degree Show at the GSA's campuses in Glasgow will be followed by presentations from a number of undergraduate programmes in London across the summer - more information can be found here.

I do hope you'll join us in person in Glasgow or London to experience, in context, the full breadth of what the GSA Degree Show has to offer. You will not be disappointed.
