Located around 80 miles north of the border with England, Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and one of its most important cultural centres. It is home to four universities, along with several higher education colleges and over 85,000 students.
Situated on the River Clyde, Glasgow’s history is closely associated with maritime industry, shipbuilding and international trade. In modern times the city’s economic focus has shifted to business, finance and media, but its cultural identity and historical landmarks retain strong links to this industrial heritage.
You’ll find that student life in Glasgow is vibrant and varied, with a rich cultural history complemented by the chance to visit famous music venues and sporting arenas. Glasgow has been the birthplace of a number of famous bands including Simple Minds, Belle and Sebastian, Mogwai and Biffy Clyro – a pedigree that led it to be named as one of the first UNESCO Cities of Music. Two of the local football teams, Rangers FC and Celtic FC, are the most successful in Scotland and the city has shone in the international spotlight as the host of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
One of Glasgow’s highlights is the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, a treasure trove of natural history, cultural artefacts and priceless paintings. The Riverside Museum, meanwhile, pays tribute to Glasgow’s proud industrial heritage, featuring a series of transport-focused exhibitions.
Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is Scotland’s second-oldest ‘Ancient University’ and the fourth oldest university in the British Isles. It is now a member of the Russell Group of leading UK research universities and is regularly ranked as one of the world’s top 100 higher education institutions. The second-oldest university in Glasgow is the University of Strathclyde, established in 1796 as a pioneering institute for professional and vocational education. It has also been recognised as one of the 50 best universities in the UK.
In addition to the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow is home to Glasgow Caledonian University as well as offices and teaching centres associated with the University of the West of Scotland. The Glasgow School of Art is another important higher education institution in the city.
Glasgow has a modern, diverse economy that provides plenty of employment opportunities for postgraduates wishing to forge a career in the city. Key business sectors include financial services, digital technology, creative industries and advanced manufacturing. Many international companies maintain bases in Glasgow, including Lockheed Martin, JP Morgan, Aon and AXA, as well as the BBC Scottish headquarters.
