The University of Glasgow has been helping talented people to succeed since 1451.
It's the fourth oldest university in the UK; Glasgow's undergraduates walk in the footsteps of eminent thinkers throughout history such as the father of economics Adam Smith, and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister Donald Dewar. Today, the University continues its proud tradition as a research-intensive institution with a global reach.
If you want to achieve the best you can in life, joining Glasgow's community of 16,500 undergraduates is a good way to start. The University offers a broad choice of subjects, excellent teaching standards and superb facilities. You can choose from a wide range of degree programmes that are flexible enough to meet your needs. And the University's international reputation, high graduate employment and exciting student lifestyle are great benefits too.
This means that if you choose to study at the University of Glasgow, you’ll:
•be part of a university ranked in the top 1% of the world
•learn from pioneering academics whose research is internationally recognised
•discover a diverse student population made up of 20,000 people from more than 120 countries
•find first class facilities for sport, one of the best libraries in Europe and a new students services building where you can get advice on everything from careers to council tax; and
•enjoy living in the UK’s 3rd largest city – Scotland’s biggest – with a renowned music scene, fabulous shopping, a wealth of arts and cultural venues, and friendly nightlife, all on your doorstep.
These are some of the reasons why the International Student Barometer ranks Glasgow 3rd in the UK, and why the University's final year undergraduates report satisfaction levels of 90%, according to the National Student Survey 2010.
