  • Overview
Overview

A prestigious institution, the University of Glasgow has been educating students since 1451. Ranked in the world’s top 100 universities, Glasgow is the fourth-oldest higher education provider in the UK, and has recently been given the title of Scottish University of the Year by the Good University Guide 2018.

The University of Glasgow is a truly international organisation. Not only does it welcome students from more than 140 different countries worldwide, but it also helped to create Universitas 21, a group of institutions that tries to raise the standards of global higher education.

It has a number of notable alumni, too. From Joseph Lister, who introduced the world to antiseptic, all the way to Nicola Sturgeon, the current First Minister of Scotland. It even welcomed Albert Einstein in 1933 to give a lecture on the theory of relativity.

The University is in the process of creating a whole new campus as part of one of the most substantial expansions of a UK institution in the last 100 years. It will be centred around a 14-acre area of land in the city, by the Gilmorehill Campus.

With 94.9% of graduates either being in employment or further study a year after leaving the University of Glasgow, students can feel confident that their degree will leave them well prepared for making the jump into the world of work. Students can also use the University’s Internship Hub, which offers over 350 internship opportunities every year.

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! show less

The selection process of my course was rather easy. The university website and department had the modules the program entailed, which i really needed to know before the start of the program. The lecturers are so good and experienced at what they do. Considering the fact that there is a diversity of student, the lecturers make it their responsiblity for students to understand what they are trying to pass across and are very patient with students who do not understand there accent and try to make sure they understand. Glasgow is a very lovely city, good tourist site and Glasgwegians are very friendly people. There are also part time job opportunities during student year, student benefits are reasonable as well. Personally i love shopping and using your student ID card some really good shops give discounts. Also as a student you are excempted from council tax if you decide to get a private accomodation. Overall my stay in Glasgow has been beautiful, i would encourage not only students but tourists to visit the city. show less
