I chose to study in Glasgow because of the beautiful environment, the hospitable people and, most importantly, because of the University of Glasgow's excellent reputation.

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.
