            Great Experience; such a diverse mix of studentsI did my Masters of Architecture degree at the GSA, and was impressed by the close attention of the staff, the diversity of the graduate student mix, and the fascinating urban feel of the city.I would definitely recommend the school and the city; Where else would you get a chance to study and be within easy access to Charles Rennie Mackintosh's buildings?

            A place like no otherGSA is a place like no other I have ever had the joy of experiencing.This is a place that will open up your mind and train you to think way beyond your wildest dreams. It will be tough and competitive but so is life, if you can't handle it you won't last a day in the creative world beyond art school.I can't recommend GSA highly enough, there aren't words to adequately cover it.
