    Supportive teaching environment, very good provision of extracurricular activities

    The University of Glasgow provides a teaching environment very well adapted to the students’ needs and requirements and always considers and implements changes proposed by students. The teaching methods and materials are constantly reviewed and are fine-tuned to help the student as much as possible, without hindering the independence of the learning process. The university’s facilities are amazing, they offer incredible opportunities for all students. The student organizations, clubs, and societies are very active, very prominently present in the students’ lives and represent their interests fairly, while also providing plenty of opportunities for social interaction, mental healthcare, educational support.

    Studying in a Picturesque Castle with Magical Landscapes

    On first arrival at The University of Glasgow I thought I was literally walking into Hogwarts! The University setting is absolutely beautiful and everyday waking up you feel motivated to go and study there due to the beautiful setting and environment. Being a Russell Group University and an ancient university in the UK, The University of Glasgow truly lives up to its prestigious name as one of the best universities the UK has to offer. The facilities, lecturers and activities at the university are simply some of the best in the world when it comes to education. Studying there has truly helped to shape me and to shape my future in the best possible way. I am always learning and experiencing new things each and everyday, from making new friends and memorising a new equation to trying out parachuting at one of the university societies!

  • A really good university

    After studying for 5 years at the University of Glasgow it is clear to me that it is certainly one of the best universities in the world. The university campus is already amazing and is constantly improving.
    I have been under the “umbrella” of both the School of Engineering and the Business School and I must say that they both have pros and cons.
    The School of Engineering is certainly demanding, but you learn a lot. You have the opportunities that you wouldn’t have in another university, and you can enrich your knowledge by visiting all the different facilities that they have. The problem is that engineering is very focused on research and not that much in developing the students’ practical skills. Most of the staff members are very friendly and approachable.
    In Business School the courses are really interesting, all the staff members are extremely friendly and you really enjoy studying with them. The problem is that sometimes it is pretty tough to approach them since they tend to be really busy. This is a bit frustrating, to be honest.
    Apart from studying, at the university, you can enjoy numerous activities. They have a huge gym where you can also try several different sports and join different teams, 4 unions, numerous clubs and societies and they even have a night-club. That means that students can make their student lives more interesting and enrich their CV by doing other extracurricular activities. This helps them connect with other people too.
    They also have a huge library which provides almost everything a student would need for their research.
    Lastly, a great thing that the University of Glasgow has is the fact that they are extremely organised. They follow an exact schedule that is generally known from the beginning of each academic years, hence as a student, you can organise yourself as well.
    Needless to say that the university looks like Hogwarts and the graduation ceremony certainly makes you feel like just graduated a School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It makes you feel really proud of yourself.

    The course I am on is absolutely great and the teaching standard is superior. It is a fantastic university and I would have liked to have completed my undergraduate degree here, but I was not aware of how amazing the university was after finishing my A levels. It’s a great choice!

  • Great uni, could have better support

    I’m in my last year at Glasgow, the teaching quality is great and the marking is fair. The only thing I think they could improve on is student support, or ensuring students are more connected with their lecturers. The first few years I felt the classes were too big and I wasn’t really sure who to speak to about certain things. You never really get to know a lecturer or councillor. However the last 2 years the classes have been smaller so we did get this opportunity more. It would be nice to have a designated student support staff member who knew you and emailed you etc. because sometimes I have felt I don’t know who to email or speak to. Apart from that it’s been a great experience and every staff member I have come into contact with has been very helpful and always kind.

    Great university

    Currently, I am finishing my Undergraduate programme at the University of Glasgow. I study psychology and while the programme is very demanding, it is also very interesting and rates very highly in the UK! It provides you with lots of background knowledge and is especially good for learning how to conduct research. I believe the university has lots to offer in terms of subjects, programmes, entertainment etc. The teaching system is interesting, up-to-date and allows for communication between the students and the staff. The main focus in my programme is on research, which I find fascinating. The university is well-organised, obviously beautiful and the overall atmosphere is amazing! I highly recommend.

    Excellent

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time studying Nursing at The University of Glasgow. The course itself was well organised and had great facilities. The number of students per year is kept small which is definitely an advantage for students making the course more engaging and the lecturers more approachable. Being a vocational course it heavily involved placements and these were carefully picked ensuring students were given a variety and this definitely was a benefit when applying for jobs.

    The University itself is situated in the West end of Glasgow which is a beautiful area to live, filled with parks, a fantastic variety of restaurants and shops. It is also within short walking distance of Glasgow’s city centre which is Scotland’s biggest city. If you enjoy the outdoors there are many trains and buses which link Glasgow to the Mountains around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Back to the campus the University has, not one but, two unions where students can socialise, eat, study and relax. There are many clubs and societies to offer which I would recommend participating in during your time at the University. They are great ways to make friends, learn new skills and sports and even plan trips abroad!

    My time at University was great fun and I would highly recommend studying here!

    Great place to find yourself - Plus it looks like Hogwarts

    I personally had a really great time at the University of Glasgow, where I studied an MEng in MEchanical Engineering. My recommendation is take the time at University to join a club / sport, it’s a great way to make friends, find yourself and develop as a person.

    The University is situated in the west end of Glasgow, which is a lovely area full of parks, restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops and everything else you could want.

    I found the teaching to be really engaging, with attentive lecturers who could always be called upon to answer questions and assist with your studies/projects.

    The degree included many practical learning exercises, called ‘Labs’ where we got to get hands on and test out the theories we were taught in the classroom. When studying for exams, ensure you can do the past papers and know the formulas – if you do these two things you will get good results.
