Glasgow

Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and is located to the west of the country. Officially the world’s friendliest city (according to Time Out Magazine 2019), you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome in Glasgow, and there is so much to explore and enjoy in this beautiful, vibrant city. Within the city, you’ll find world-class visitor attractions, diverse neighbourhoods, stunning architecture, an ever-evolving food and drink scene and legendary nightlife.  

Glasgow means 'dear green place' in Gaelic and it's easy to see why, with more than 90 parks and gardens open for the public to enjoy, including Kelvingrove Park and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (TripAdvisor's top-rated art museum in the UK), a short walk from the university campus.  

In the UK, Glasgow has the largest academic community outside London, with world-leading research in life sciences, engineering, science and technology. 

Outwith the city, if you wish to extend your stay and explore Scotland’s rich history and heritage, there is an abundance of historical and beautiful locations to visit such as Stirling, Perth, Dundee or the capital city, Edinburgh.
