Welcome to Degree Show 2016

Welcome to The Glasgow School of Art's Degree Show 2016 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 and architecture.

This year the Degree Show takes place across several venues - the School of Design Degree Show is 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 these are just 25 minutes' walk from the Tontine campus on Trongate, Merchant City which features the Fine Art show for the first time. The Master of Fine Art show, meanwhile, takes place from 11 June at a third location, The Glue Factory, just a short walk from Garnethill. 

From 8 July you can also join us here online as the launch of the GSA Degree Show 2016 in Singapore, where our third cohort of Communication Design and Interior Design students are exhibiting at DECK in Singapore.

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