Thinking of studying at the GSA? Virtual Open Days are your first port of call to get information. These online events are held around once a week in different time slots, focusing on different aspects of life as a student at GSA.

Virtual Open Days might be for you if:

  • You are thinking about studying either at GSA or an art school education generally
  • You are not sure which programme of study might suit you
  • You want to know more about entry requirements, how to apply and studying in Glasgow
  • You live somewhere outside Glasgow, or you otherwise have difficulty visiting GSA in person
  • You have a question and would like to speak to someone at GSA
  • You have access to a computer, laptop or smartphone and wifi

During Virtual Open Days you can meet some of our staff, and take part in helpful advice sessions and group Q+As. These sessions cover topics from our programmes to advice on portfolios, visas and accommodation. They are hosted by staff members most able to offer tailored advice – from programme tutors and our dedicated admissions team, to student support services and technical support staff.

Virtual Open Days are free to attend and available to book on a series of dates throughout the year. If you are looking for advice on a number of topics, you are welcome to book to attend multiple sessions. Browse upcoming events and register here.


Want to visit the GSA in person? We are currently making plans for campus- based Open Days to take place in 2021 with appropriate social distancing requirements. More details will be available in due course. Please note that the GSA is currently closed to the public and visitors. 

In the meantime, a guided video tour of the GSA’s campus is available. Led by GSA’s Student Ambassadors Martha & Maja, third year students in Painting + Printmaking and Architecture, the campus tour visits studios, the library and workshop areas. Take the tour here.
