I chose Glasgow as I heard it was a good university for the degree that I was applying for and I heard great things about the city and the people here. The whole experience is great but I think that ultimately having one of the best universities in the UK on your CV is the best thing and knowing that you are going into the real world knowing as much as possible. The teaching is brilliant, the buildings are beautiful and the city is great
I first came to Glasgow on the Erasmus exchange programme. I especially liked the practical nature of the postgraduate courses offered at Glasgow. The combination of theory and its application, using industry software, in river engineering, GIS and urban drainage, was particularly useful. Of course, my personal experience of the University was very important in my decision to continue to study here, but the University’s prestige in world ranking terms was important too. I thought the programme was well organised and I really appreciated the chance to do an experimental study for my major project work. Glasgow itself is a great city, with all the museums, concerts and social life that you would expect, and the people are friendly too.

Carnegie-Cameron Taught Postgraduate Bursaries are awarded towards the payment of tuition fees for one-year taught postgraduate Masters programmes offered by a Scottish university. The bursaries aim to enable students to enhance their employability in their chosen field, develop their specialist skills or supplement existing ones, thus bettering their career prospects.Candidates will be selected on the basis of their merit and promise, and of their financial circumstances. The most important selection criteria should be those envisaged by Andrew Carnegie: that the candidates be qualified and deserving, industrious and ambitious, and that they would derive particular benefit from a one-year taught postgraduate degree, which they would be unlikely to attend without the award. The Bursaries should not be considered as a stepping stone for further study at PhD level and preference will be given to candidates with a clear career plan outside academia. Certificates or diplomas are not eligible degree. One-year taught postgraduate courses may be attended on a part-time basis over two consecutive years.
