Here at the Glasgow School of Art our courses are designed to support the creative development of students in their chosen subject. Learning and the change this implies cannot happen without support. Student support is therefore integral to the activities of every academic department.

Student Support Services >

The Glasgow School of Art has an excellent record of providing specialist support services that complement and underpin the core provision available through the academic departments.

Under the umbrella of Student Support & Development Services, the following specialist services are available to all GSA students:

Student Welfare

Practical support and advice about accommodation, funding and finances, childcare and the practicalities of being a student.  You will also find advice for Care Leavers and Looked After Young People.

Learning Support & Development

Help and advice is available to all students about the process of learning at the Glasgow School of Art.  Specific support is also available to international students for whom English is not their first language.


Offers students the opportunity to talk through personal and troubling issues in a safe and confidential environment with a professional, trained counsellor.

Supporting Students with Disability

Offers specific support to students who have a disability (a physical or sensory impairment, medical condition or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia).

Support for International Students

Visa and immigration information is available for students who are studying on a Tier 4 General Student visa.
