GlasGOw Global Award

GlasGOw Global Award

‘GlasGOw GLOBAL’ is a College of Social Sciences initiative of challenge and achievement for our College's undergraduate students. Taking part will provide you with a deeper insight into contemporary international issues and a better understanding of other’s cultures and viewpoints. Success is rewarded through the award of the ‘GlasGOw Global Citizens’ Award’ and recognition on your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Record) transcript upon graduation; participation may also lead to academic credit and grade conversion. There’s nothing to lose, and much to gain – so look through our webpages and sign up for the scheme!

GlasGOw Global is designed to be a portal to all the fantastic opportunities available in Glasgow, as well as further afield, that you can take in in order to internationalise your profile and gain a global perspective! There are three tiers:

Engage with the international scene at the University of Glasgow by learning a new language, joining an internationally orientated organisation, or become a student mentor for incoming international students!

Explore by under taking a short-term work-based placement or period of study at another campus – an excellent way to gain an insight into another culture!

Exchange through spending time studying abroad at a partner university.

Earn points from any of these tiers and, if once you gain enough, you’ll be awarded a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award depending on your level of participation!
