A community campus

You can expect a warm welcome from students and staff. The interdisciplinary teaching and friendly residences help you to get to know students and staff from all disciplines quickly and really feel at home. You will be taught by academics who are among the top researchers in their fields, and who have a bright vision for your teaching and research both on and off campus.

Working in partnership

We’re proud to be a partnership campus, sharing our Library and IT facilities with the University of the West of Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway College. Your degree will have all the rigour and esteem of a University of Glasgow degree, and the opportunity to work with a range of partners means you’ll really have the best of both worlds: a degree from one of the world’s top universities, plus cutting-edge facilities and a progressive approach to learning.
