Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. Today it is a broad-based, research-intensive institution with a global reach.
As a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading UK research universities, the University is constantly striving to change the world with its expertise. The institution’s annual research income totals more than £177m, which places it in the UK’s top 10 earners for research.
The institution’s research-led approach is one of the reasons why a degree from the University is so prized, but as a postgraduate student you can also benefit from opportunities to:
•study abroad and take part in work placements
•equip yourself with the skills you need to compete in a global workplace
•learn from pioneering academics whose research is internationally recognised
•form friendships and networks that last a lifetime; and
•be part of a university ranked in the top 1% of the world.
Glasgow invests in facilities to support the professional and personal development of its 6,000 postgraduate students. The University has spent £7.5 million on lecture theatres and seminar rooms since 2007 and has plans to invest a further £3.5 million by 2017.
