Argentina

The University of Glasgow has been welcoming students from Argentina since the late 1800s. Our first Argentinian student, Lorenzo Saborido, attended the University in 1892 to study Naval Architecture from Buenos Aires.

Since then we have developed a strong link with Argentina including a very popular student exchange programme with Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires.

In addition to a wealth of events held by our International Student Support team, our Argentinian students are invited to join the University’s Hispanic Society.

Entry Requirements

Undergraduate

The University will consider students who have gained the Bachillerato for admission into Glasgow’s foundation programme, which is run by Glasgow International College. On successful completion on the foundation programme, you will progress into Year 2 of the main Undergraduate Bachelors degree.

International Baccalaureate

Applications with 30-34 points will be considered for direct admission to most schools, although a minimum of 30 points will be considered for admissions to Engineering. Please note there will be certain exceptions.

Postgraduate Taught

We will consider applications to a Masters degree from graduates holding a Licenciado.  This qualification is considered comparable to the British Bachelor degree when awarded after four or more years of study.  If a minimum pass mark of 7.5 or above is achieved, this may be considered for admission to a taught Master's degree course.  Alternatively, applicants with a GPA of 3.0 or above may be considered for postgraduate study.
