Glasgow School of Art hoped that the Student Transitions Theme would make a big impact on the student experience. The University used the first year of the Theme to outline what actions they would follow up in years two and three. Their main focus was to identify existing good practice and areas for priority. Topics covered in year one include:

  • articulation
  • employability
  • internationalisation at postgraduate level.

The work in year two focused on transitions through higher education. They looked at a mix of activities aimed at student transitions taking place in each school.


In year three, Glasgow School of Art focused on student transitions out of university. This helped build on their aspirations for interdisciplinary learning. The University related this to the development of students becoming professional practitioners. The project "Designing Your Own Future" helped achieve this. Other work in the School of Art focused on building upon a recently complete project “An anatomy of Employability” which mapped professional practice opportunities for students.
