Scotland’s most populous city, Glasgow, is home to two universities in the 2011 QS World University Rankings: the University of Glasgow, which ranks 59 and the University of Strathclyde at 270=. The former is one of the world’s oldest universities, having been founded well over 500 years ago.
The city as a whole has, in recent years, shaken off its gritty reputation to become one the UK’s leading cultural, financial and higher educational and research hubs. It is known for its music scene and the fierce rivalry between its two biggest football clubs, Rangers and Celtic.
Glasgow has a rich, long history, having been settled since the pre-Roman era. So there’s no shortage of grand historical architecture (the University of Glasgow boasts some of the grandest) alongside vestiges of the city’s role as one of the world’s leading industrial centers during the 19th century and the gleaming modern structures of the modern city.
