We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Ranked in the world's top 100 for Arts and Humanities, the University of Glasgow is based in one of Europe’s most cultural and exciting cities. The College of Arts at Glasgow is home to over 6,000 students and a growing international student population of almost 1,000 students from across the globe. We have specialised in the research and teaching since 1451 and developed wide-ranging expertise and world-leading research.
The College brings together four schools and their subjects;

School of Culture & Creative Arts
(History of Art, Music, Theatre, Film and Television Studies)
School of Humanities

Arts & the City
The City of Glasgow is one of the cultural centres in the UK. A UNESCO City of Music, it is home to 15 major concert and music venues, 13 museums and galleries and countless international festivals. Links with these organisations has allowed us to further develop work placements, invite guest lecturers, practitioner workshops and create research opportunities for our students. Our taught programmes are developed with an understanding of the current context of the creative, cultural and heritage sectors and with the specific needs of employers in mind. This means that whether you choose to follow an academic or professional pathway once completing your postgraduate qualification, you will be perfectly positioned to do so.
The College of Arts has been at the centre of the University since its inception in 1451 and from that day we have continued to produce internationally recognised research and contribute to the success of our graduates. The College’s research income and PG funding are in the UK top 10 and most subjects are consistently in the top 10 or 20 in various university guides.
In the recent research assessment exercise (REF 2014), we had top 10 results for Celtic & Gaelic (overall and for outputs), English Language and Literature (environment), History (impact and environment), History of Art (impact and environment) and Theatre, Film and Television Studies and the Centre for Cultural Policy Research (environment, joint first place); and top 20 results for Celtic & Gaelic (environment), Classics (overall, outputs, impact and environment), History (overall), Theatre, Film and Television Studies and the Centre for Cultural Policy Research (overall and outputs), Theology and Religious Studies (impact).
Globally, Glasgow’s Arts and Humanities is ranked among the world’s top 100, ranked 71th in the QS top university rankings.
The Kelvin Hall is a result of the partnership between the University of Glasgow, the National Library of Scotland and the city of Glasgow. It provide access to Glasgow Museums' Social History, Mackintosh, Archaeology and furniture collections through tours, events and temporary displays.
