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.
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.
The University will accept students studying A-levels and IBDP for direct entry. Please refer to the webpage for the programme you want to study. Students studying SAT/ACT/AP Exams should go to the USA page.
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.
