We have at Altyre a world-class teaching and research institution whose recent graduate destinations include BBC, Dyson, Apple, Rockstar Games, The Modern Institute, Graven Images, Foster and Partners and JM Architects, L’Oreal, BAE Systems, Ford, Nokia, Sony, GAP, Apple. Over the next 5 years Altyre will also make itself available to act as a host to GSA’s International Exchange Programme, which currently embraces 75 leading institutions.
