Terms & Conditions  

Fees vary according to class size, facilities, equipment or essential materials required, and the requirement of a life model.

Discounted Fees If you are a senior citizen in receipt of a state pension, unemployed or a full time FE or HE student, the discounted fee as stated in the course description is applicable. You will be required to email a scanned copy of your evidence to open-studio@gsa.ac.uk

To benefit from the Discounted Fee, you need to select the course you want to attend and enter the code: Discount_Fee in the ‘Promotion Code’ box.

Discounts are not available for the Children’s Courses but we do offer full fee bursaries. For information see ‘Children’s Course Bursaries’ below.

Cancellation Refunds cannot be offered if you choose to cancel your booking. We understand that personal circumstances can change, however GSA cannot accept responsibility for this. If there is a change to your personal circumstances beyond your control prior to the start of your course, we will make every effort to offer you an alternative course. The only exception for a refund will be students withdrawing from a course on medical or compassionate grounds (documentation may be requested).

Children’s Course Bursaries As part of the School’s strategy to encourage participation in Further and Higher Education from currently underrepresented groups, a system of bursary support is available for Children’s Saturday Courses. This support is aimed at low-income and unemployed parents/guardians of children who would otherwise be unable to join the Programme. Bursaries are available for Children’s Courses only. Our aim is to offer direct assistance to such students in the form of a fee waiver directly from the Department. There are a limited number of bursaries available and only one bursary may be awarded per household.

Please contact us on +44 (0)141 353 4596/4565 or (0)141 566 1311 for further details and to request a Bursary Application Form.

Tuition Students are provided with tuition of the highest quality. Course tutors are members of the GSA staff or invited artists and designers drawn from the wider artistic community who specialise in their field. Our aim is to ensure that students have access to current initiatives in education especially in the area of skill acquisition. Tuition is through demonstration, group discussion and one-to-one advice and guidance.

Studios/Workshops Courses are held in workshops and studios across the GSA campus. The McLellan Galleries and Fleming House will now house all our drawing and painting courses after the unfortunate incident in the Mackintosh Building, while specialist technical workshops are used as per the needs of your selected course. The department does not take responsibility for personal belongings lost or damaged while students are on campus. We would ask you to be vigilant of any belongings and report any cause for concern. 

Disabled Access As the school sits on a very steep hill, it is recommended that students with mobility difficulties discuss their access requirements with the Department prior to making a formal booking. We will endeavour to accommodate all levels of need. Curbs are lowered in areas surrounding the School for wheelchair access and lifts are available in buildings used for our courses.

Health & Safety The Health and Safety regulations of the Art School can be obtained from the office on request. Health and Safety guidelines will be issued to each student at the start of course for the specific building that they are in. Risk assessments will have been carried out on all studios and equipment prior to the start of the course. 

Equal Opportunities GSA is committed to supporting equal opportunities. We aim to ensure that everyone regardless of race, gender, disability, age or sexual orientation is able to make the most of their time on the programme. It is the responsibility of the department, tutors and students to help achieve this goal. The GSA Promoting Diversity Policy is available on request.
