Students at utdoor cafe


Our students tell us how much they love being part of a welcoming and affordable city. As Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is big enough to contain a wide range of attractions, while being small enough to navigate easily. It also has great travel links to other cities in Scotland and the UK. Glasgow’s West End, home to our Gilmorehill campus, is named the 20th coolest neighbourhood in the world (Time Out, 2023).

Music, culture, sport and socialising are all important here. In fact, Glasgow has been named:  

  • the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music  
  • European Capital of Sport for 2023

The name Glasgow translates to ‘dear green place’ in Gaelic. The city has more than 90 parks and gardens to explore, and it’s also on the doorstep of many of Scotland’s most visited attractions from castles and beaches, to outdoor activities and spectacular scenery.
