I was very impressed by the library and IT services at the College and University. I was also very happy to discover different cultural and sport societies offered by the two Students’ Unions.

We are committed to being a truly international university, and our links with Glasgow International College are key in supporting this goal. We hope you will take the first steps towards joining us at Glasgow and becoming part of this wonderful institution, and we wish you every success in your degree with us.
