The course is poor, you can't choose your own studio or tutor. In fact the 5th year project has been called "the ethical city" for about a decade (embarrassing title that sums up the banality of the course). Some tutors are good but the wheels have fallen off long ago. The school has a real knack for making sideways and backward steps and pretending its in the students' best interests (it never is!) I don't know how it gets away with it year after year... Avoid! read more

while the school has seen issues across the different sub school's as a member of MSA (mackintosh school of architecture) i can say it is organised very well. A lot of the other reviews are linked to their individual school and i wouldn't say reflect GSA as a whole. I know MSA students as very realistic about the past year and while its not been GSA's best they are aware of the challenges the institution has had in light of COVID and the flip flopping of the movement on what can and cannot be open. Other schools have not been treated as well as some however MSA is a grand faculty, the staff are so hard working and if you want to make something happen there are measures put in place to make them happen. While studios have been closed the staff have done their best to facilitate a learning experience as much as possible such as Post Graduate Events that have been very successful and the introduction Miro that has allowed for virtual pin up. read more

Tutor is the worst person I have ever encountered. I have never met someone so rude and negative. Always turns down every idea You have for a design. read more

The architecture school is well known but relies far too heavily on this. There needs to be more of a focus on teaching and course development. read more

Lacking a bit in technology teaching, and some aspects of architecture are taught too late, in my opinion. But none the less a good school with good staff members and great studio spaces. read more
