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 continues to raise the standards of global higher education.
Students can choose from over 600 different courses on offer at the institution, and can seek guidance from a brilliant student support service that helps with queries about workload, life in the UK, or even how to pay tuition fees. Students can also use the University’s Internship Hub, which offers over 350 internship opportunities every year.
Glasgow 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.
Glasgow is a brilliant student city and is widely regarded as Scotland’s ‘culture capital’, with spectacular museums and galleries, inspiring performing arts centres and breath-taking architecture.
With 95.9% of graduates being employed or involved in further study 12 months after leaving the University, students can feel confident that a degree from Glasgow will leave them ready to take the step into employment after graduation.
