Before You Arrive

You have accepted your offer! What should you do now?

To give you plenty of time to get organised, the MVLS Graduate School's  gathers a wide range of helpful resources and important information.

The University's information for getting started with us in Glasgow is also a great guide.

International Students can email the Support Welcome Team at:
international-welcome-team@glasgow.ac.uk, who are on hand to answer any questions you have about coming to Glasgow and settling in. 


You must fully register at the beginning of your studies, and at the start of each academic year until your thesis submission date. This means both academically and financially. If you don't, you can't enrol on any skills training courses and will have limited access to university systems.

Having difficulty registering? Please watch the registration videos or contact the MyCampus Registration Team on the Ivanti Helpdesk .
