The University of Glasgow has a long established relationship with Ireland and we have been welcoming students here for many decades. Our Irish graduates include Teachers, Engineers and Veterinary Surgeons among many others. At Glasgow, you will study to gain an internationally respected degree, but we can guarantee you much more besides. Glasgow is one of Europe’s most diverse cities and includes a large Irish population which tend to have more in common with the local population than our shared Celtic heritage.
