The Master of Fine Art programme at Glasgow is a two-year, full-time, research-based postgraduate degree. Throughout the 1990s, the City of Glasgow witnessed an explosion of activity in the visual arts. Artists, critics and curators from all over the world have visited Glasgow to see for themselves what curator Hans Ulrich Obrist has termed 'the Glasgow miracle'.
There are many young practising artists working in Glasgow who have helped shape a thriving creative community generating artist-led initiatives, permanent and temporary gallery spaces, and innovative approaches to public and site specific work.
The Glasgow School of Art, Master of Fine Art programme began in 1988 and has achieved international recognition as a centre of excellence in postgraduate education in the visual arts. The course occupies a unique and influential position within the extraordinary dynamic that characterises the visual art community in Glasgow.
Whilst in the wider international art community the MFA has developed a wide range of international links and formal exchange agreements with other prestigious art schools and students have been invited to participate in four international exchange exhibitions: Berlin, Brussels, Chicago and most recently New York.
