Very intriguing and challenging but also fun and gives me so much. You get to learn more about yourself and also have fun on the way towards a degree. As an internation student however, brexit is causing me to be a bit anxious about the future.
They have lectures and start talk about placements early on so you have time to prepare yourself.
Most: all tutors are very passioned about the subject Least: Everything has to be done alone and there is little time for discussion and questions since most tutors are only here part time
They are doing a good job but a lack of interest from the students.
Very safe, fresh and a perfect location. Kitchen could be slightly better since it lacks space and utensils. The rent is also a bit high considering the space
Since the fire of the mac building, the architecture school have quite poor facilities, however everything that is needed is available. The planning in the building isnt the best.
Yes, close to everything!
Very poor. Since it's an art school a lot of student arent massive fans of sports and fun group activities
Very good from what I heard. Never contacted them but they are trying to keep in touch with all students so that one knows where to turn
The worst education establishment I have ever attended. It is an institution which is purely interested in promoting it’s own ‘excellence’ and mystique but lets students down at every opportunity. Staff would barely notice if someone just stopped attending altogether. Supervision is so minimal that I think it would be feasible to simply come in, set up a degree show, hand in a dissertation and they would probably award you a degree there and then!
Nothing mentioned whatsoever
No contact time for weeks on end. No teaching, guidance or any form of explanation as to what students should be doing.
Overpriced, disorganised, few activities.
New building has studio space and workshops with potential. However, we are a month in to the course and have not yet been allocated individual spaces - no work getting made.
Glasgow is depressing, threatening, wet and dirty.
Very few and not appealing to a wide range of people.
Terrible - no regard given to disability or long-term illness. Conditions made through the learning support department do not get implemented by teaching staff. We are entirely left to our own devices.
Wouldn't recommend £9250 for nothing, don't waste your time! I worked hard for 3 years to go to my dream art school and was left very disappointed. It's a lot of money to pay for a disorganised course with a complete lack of resources
No- the professional practice lecture completely useless basically told you to be careful with solvents in studio no help with employment or exhibitions
Most- people on my course were very supportive Printmaking technicians are amazing really helpful and know their stuff Least- only had 2 part time tutors for 8 students so tutor time was non existent Badly organised no replacement tutors to cover illness Trips were badly organised or got cancelled Completely lacked resources in comparison to other years
Student Union always has different events on and lots of societies to join. Highly recommend the karaoke on at The Vic always a fun night
Margaret MacDonald house was overpriced but more homely than Blythswood house.Had many issues with plumbing including leaking sink, broken boiler. Kitchen appliances e.g. broken freezer and oven never replaced
Facilities look better for design than painting but that may change with Stow building next year
Friendly city with lots to do great places to eat and explore
Lots of clubs allow free entry with student card
Completely lack any support didn't attend for 6 weeks and nobody noticed Took me over a month to drop out as nobody answers their emails Feedback on assignments always felt rushed after months of working on a project to get feedback which should have already been mentioned during tutorials
I have enjoyed the lifestyle but if I were to apply for uni again I certainly wouldn’t apply to GSA. They’re disorganised, unsupportive and honestly all you need to look at is the fact they are at the bottom of the league table for student satisfaction and that says it all.
They don’t really at all, I’ve just finished my final year and had next to no input in preparing me for employability
I don’t like anything, they are disorganised, unsupportive and I feel that I would have been better off hiring a studio space and teaching myself the techniques. All it has given me is a price of paper and the opportunity to network at degree show
They are also useless, it’s really gone down since I joined GSA. There are also very few societies which I found to be disappointing.
The facilities for Silversmithing and Jewellery are probably the only decent thing in the whole department. They have literally everything you could possibly need. The only problem is you have to ask to be inducted on them and they don’t tell you what there is in the department so you don’t know what opportunities there are.
I love Glasgow, there’s so much culture, the people are so friendly and the nightlife is amazing.
Rubbish, there’s very few and the majority of them are sport societies so it’s sucks if you’re not into that.
The support has been extremely poor, I suffer from mental health issues and my tutors have not supported this in any way, in fact a direct quote from the head of department was just to “leave all that at the door and get on with my work” which anyone with a mental health issue will know is not possible.
The academic institutions are well organised, highly qualified staff, broad spectrum of educational instruments, clear goals and high level offer and expectations. I just wish I would work harder to take advantage of the resources available here. The city is absolutely gorgeous, could spend my entire time wandering the streets, and my entire fortune here shopping. :)) Last but not least, the people are very friendly and relaxed, yet not intrusive (I am 6-foot 7, never seen a taller guy yet, yet no one stares - big thumbs up).
Career counseling, work and internship offers every week.
I like the difficulty of the subjects (it's all about "go hard or go home" for me), their diversity and applicability in the 'real world' the teaching it's quite clear and helpful and interactive, I also like the assignments giving us short-term goals. Cannot think of anything I like least, sorry. :)
It seems well organised. I don't get involved much because of my studies.
Quite exciting. I could spend my entire day wandering the streets. :)
I got into the Mountaineering society, yet didn't get to join their activities yet - yes, I have to keep up with my studies.
Very friendly and open and I can ask anything any time.
