Details / Notes

Student records from The Glasgow School of Art confirm that at least eight Belgian students attended the School between 1914 and 1916.

It is likely that these students were Belgian refugees, arriving in Britain when their country became occupied upon the outbreak of World War One. This information is based on a research project investigating the number of international students who attended the Glasgow School of Art between 1903 and 1949.

The student's names are listed below. Please get in touch if you have any further information.

- Renée Anthony, 1915

- Suzanne Nys Baltus, 1915

It also contains several travel itineraries specific to different countries. These were presumably created as a starting point for bursary winning students going to particular countries. The are very detailed, advising students about particular areas of interest for their studies as well as offering advice about where to stay, how to use public transport and where to go for help. Within this folder are itineraries for London, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Italy and Belgium. In addition, the folder contains general information about staying in the Halls of Residence at the National College of Rubber Technology in London.
