Celtic and Gaelic

Celtic and Gaelic at Glasgow brings together the teaching and research of the ancient, medieval and modern periods in the Celtic languages of Scottish Gaelic, Irish and Welsh.

Our primary interests are in:

  • Scottish Gaelic and Irish language and literature
  • Medieval Celtic literatures and history.

We are the first university in Scotland to have a dedicated Chair of Gaelic. The excellent research our department carries out was recognised in the 2014 REF when we were ranked 10th in the UK for overall quality and 3rd in the UK for 4* output.

Our high standard of teaching was reflected in the 2015 NSS (National Student Survey), when we were ranked joint first with an overall student satisfaction rate of 100%.

With links to archaeology, history and modern languages and cultures, we can provide you with a unique opportunity to study a range of fascinating languages and cultures.
