University of Glasgow

Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world.

A leading research centre

The University of Glasgow is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading UK research universities and is striving to change the world with its expertise. Its annual earnings for research are £175m, which means that it can make important discoveries, whether that’s finding a way to detect malaria in minutes, or contributing to the biggest particle physics experiment in the world: the Large Hadron Collider.

Excellence in teaching

The University’s research-led approach is one of the reasons why a degree from the University of Glasgow is so prized, but students also benefit from opportunities to study abroad, improve their employability, take part in work placements and explore a wide range of social activities. As a result, it attracts scholars from 120 countries around the world.

Rated third for international student satisfaction among universities participating in the International Student Barometer Summer 2012, the University ensures that its students graduate equipped with the skills they need to compete in a global workplace. The friendships and networks they make at Glasgow can last a lifetime - the university is in touch with 118,000 alumni in 162 countries.

Working with others

The University knows it cannot succeed alone, which is why it works with partners and friends in Glasgow, Scotland and beyond. Whether it’s sharing expertise on climate change and disease prevention in developing countries, or offering investment to kickstart new collaborations with growing companies in Scotland, the benefits of its ever-expanding network of friendships and partnerships are wide-ranging and reciprocal.
