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, once you gain enough, you may be awarded a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award depending on your level of participation!
