Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the UK and has maintained a consistent reputation for academic excellence and innovative research. We are a truly Scottish university, with over 73% of our students coming from all over Scotland. We offer visiting students the opportunity to study in a world-class teaching and living environment.  International students can choose from 900 courses from a range of faculties. This flexibility ensures a broad academic experience and allows you to match your study abroad options with your degree course at home.  Students can take two art courses at The Glasgow School of Art as well in addition to their other studies.

Glasgow, Scotland's largest city is a bustling, lively and cultural place to live and study. There is always something to see and do with excellent shopping, nightlife, museums, parks and galleries. Glasgow is a friendly and welcoming multi-cultural city which has recently been voted 'politest city in the UK'.   Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Glasgow is an ideal gateway to further explore our beautiful country and is less than an hour away from many attractions, including Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Edinburgh, Stirling and the Ayrshire Coast.
