About Glasgow

Glasgow, established 560 years ago, is Scotland's second oldest university, the UK's fourth oldest, and an important pillar of Scotland's biggest city.

As well as excellent teaching and a worldwide reputation, students enjoy a compact campus at the heart of the city's stylish West End. A flexible system of study means that those who aren't studying for a professional degree can make the final decision about their honours subject/s at the end of the second year.

The university's alumni includes seven Nobel laureates and two British Prime Ministers.
