Goldsmiths vs Glasgow School of Art (MFA Fine Art)

I am from the US and have been accepted into the MFA programs at Goldsmiths and GSA. My primary media is oil paint, but my practice also includes woodblock printmaking. From afar, I find both programs very interesting in different ways, on par with top schools in the US, and less expensive than NYC programs. If there is anyone, especially current or former MFA students, out there who can comment on the strengths and advantages as well as weaknesses and disadvantages of the programs, I would really appreciate it if you would reply or DM me. I have searched on this site to learn about the programs, but could find only limited info. I do gather that funding, strikes, etc have been an issue. Is it as bad as a couple of years ago?
Goldsmiths is a part of University of London and you will be near major art galleries. :smile:

It was quick, less than two days.
When was your interview? I've been waiting 4 days for a response now and just starting to wonder if I've got lost in the system...

I graduated from GSA with a BA(Hons)Fine Art 1 year ago. Was there for 4 years. My sincere advice is stay away from that place. Its bad quality teaching. Almost none of the teachers are artists themselves. I stayed for the sole reason of keeping my student visa and graduate visa to further settle in the country legally. Quote from one of the most talented, in my opinion, MFA Fine Art students at GSA: "It is a waste of money". I couldn't agree more. They don't give you anything. They can't give anything.
