Amazing

I haven't started but the accommodation is very good. The lecturers are very interactive with the students and the students relate well with other international students. The environment is conducive for learning.

Great university, beautiful place and awesome people!

I had a great experience here. University of Glasgow is one of the reputable university in the world, particularly in health sciences. This university has shown me the excellence of teaching and research activities. Being a student here, you would be feel like the second home, staffs and lecturers were very helpful, supervisor was incredibly supportive, department also has friendly environment. Not only in campus atmosphere, Scottish people are very nice and helpful. You would always miss this place when you become an alumni (I want to be there as student, longer! or..as long as I live). I also love main campus building-you can see the real Hogwarts.

Take degree/course here is recommended, you will get everything in one place, great teaching experience, stay in beautiful city and meet awesome people/friends!

The University of Glasgow: The Way Out

My experience in university of Glasgow has been wonderful. This is based on my MSc project tittled (Is there a difference in fat metabolism in responce to feeding and exercise between West Africans and White Europeans) under the surpervision of Dr Jason Gill. 
This advice goes to prospective student, the university of Glasgow is not home for lazy students.

Glasgow is welcoming only when you invest your time and energy into getting to know it. I am proud that I have made that extra step of making Glasgow my home and doing my best to enjoy my uni experience. Make sure you can handle life in a big city surrounded by hundreds of very different people.

Glasgow University is the best place to study!

Finding a University with an interesting program and scholarship opportunities was a big challenge. I am really happy I was one of the students to get a scholarship for studying here at Glasgow University. A vibrant community, multi- national and -cultural environment, new field of studies. The University life is really full of interesting events, clubs and societies. Every week trips to different parts of UK are organized for international students which helps to get acquainted with the culture, nature and history! 
The education system here is quite different and you need time to adjust to it. Whatsoever, it is all worth it because of high level of education and freedom of choice.
Life here is really active and all you need is to catch up with this  stream and enjoy your life as a Glasgow Uni student.

Brilliant university with a fantastic student life. The city near us gives us a brilliant location to go on weekends. Lecturers/tutors are extremely knowledgable and fantastic at explaining complex subjects.

The best place to study if you want to get as much as possible from your studies

I really enjoy studying here because the lecturer are very well - qualified here. Accordingly, it encourages to put more efforts in studying. They make the subject interesting for you. The general environment at the university is excellent. The students are friendly and it is not very difficult to integrate into the community. Moreover, the university suggests a variety of activities after classes.

Fantastic university

This is without a doubt one of the best decisions i have ever made. The university is fantastic, very challenging, but rewarding. The most important advice if you are thinking on coming here would be: be prepared to study hard but at the same time to meet a lot of friendly people from all around the world and have a great time in this wonderful city.

Viva Glasvegas!

Uni and college is in a whole different league of its own. I've had good and bad experiences but then again you get this everywhere. You can have fun if you choose to, you can be stressed if you choose to. So, my advise for people is to divide their time for work and fun properly. Definitely work hard or you WILL regret it but at the same time have FUN FUN FUN!!! Go out and meet people. Participate in extra curricular. DON'T BE SHY!!  Go for it!! That is the true university experience!!
