For those who are new to the city, Glasgow is a wonderful place to explore, to try something new, develop your skills and get a world class education. Those students already living in Glasgow will know what a great city it is, but will now get to experience it from the perspective of a new student.
Glasgow is one of the most exciting cities in the UK and has one of the largest student populations. You will find something to cater for every taste, be it dancing until 3am, shopping for the latest fashions, sampling some of the local music, or relaxing in one of the many coffee shops.
The University offers many opportunities to get involved in student life.
- Join one of our two Student Unions, both offering endless hours of entertainment.
- Become a member of a club or society or start your own – an ideal way to make new friends.
- Make a difference by standing for election in the Students’ Representative Council.
- Become a Student Ambassador and assist at Open Days and Campus Visits.
These are just a few of the ways you can make your time at university as fulfilling and exciting as possible. Life at the University of Glasgow is more than just getting a degree.
