Gray’s School of Art is one of Scotland’s four art schools and is an integral part of Robert Gordon University (RGU) in Aberdeen. The School has a vibrant mix of around a thousand students attending both full-time and part-time programmes including undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral, and evening courses.

The School portfolio covers a wide range of specialist subjects found within the breadth of Design and Fine Art disciplines. Within each course students have the opportunity to specialise and focus their study within their core discipline area, thus allowing for greater creative diversity and development of their expertise.

There are six undergraduate application routes into the School representing the core disciplines through which greater specialism occurs.
