The MassArt International Exchange Programs are full immersion programs at one of our reciprocal exchange partner host institutions. Students enroll directly in the host institution abroad but pay MassArt tuition and fees. Most forms of financial aid apply, but it is important to check with the financial aid office for more information. Be sure to visit our website for more information on the steps to study abroad.
Glasgow School of Art is located in the urban center of Glasgow, where the city’s historic Mackintosh Building stands as an iconic feature of the campus. Glasgow is Scotland’s most populous city, and shares a temperate climate along with most of the country.
