The University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. Since opening our doors in 1451, we’ve dedicated our time to inspiring great minds throughout history, from the father of economics, Adam Smith, to the pioneer of television, John Logie Baird. We’re proud that our learning community continues to foster wisdom, respect and satisfaction today.
Each year, the University welcomes around 25,000 undergraduate and postgraduate scholars from over 135 countries around the world. The University consistently ranks highly for student satisfaction and our students graduate equipped with the skills they need to compete in a global environment, and with friendships and networks that last a lifetime.
A broad choice of subjects, excellent teaching standards and superb facilities, high graduate employment rates and a top-quality student lifestyle in the UK’s third largest city, are just some of the reasons why we think Glasgow is a wise choice.
