Further & Higher Education

The National Galleries of Scotland is an immensely valuable resource for students and tutors in further and higher education. In addition to an art collection of international quality and first-rate temporary exhibitions, we also have specialist:

  • art archives
  • libraries
  • print rooms
  • online activities

These can be of great use for independent learning.

We can offer the following facilities to students and tutors in higher and further education:

  • a dynamic talks and lectures programme relating to the collection and temporary exhibitions
  • academic conferences, study days and courses relating to exhibitions and displays
  • specialist film screenings on art and artists
  • special events for trainee teachers
  • guided and self-guided tours of the collection (please note we have to charge HEIs and FEIs for guided tours)
  • reduced-price entry to temporary exhibitions (two weeks’ notice required)

We are keen to facilitate on-site teaching and are always open to new ideas for educational partnerships.
