The University of Glasgow is pleased to receive a small number of Armenian students every year into Social Sciences, and has links with the Russian-Armenian Slavonic University.

Like Armenia, Scotland is rich in culture with our own traditional costumes, dances and interesting food. But in case you need a taste of home while you are here, Glasgow also has a restaurant serving Armenian food.

Entry Requirements


Students from Armenia must undertake one of the following options to be eligible for entry to the University of Glasgow:

A) A-Levels or International Baccalaureate.  For information on specific grade requirements please refer to our online prospectus
B) One year of study at a recognised Armenian Higher Education Institute on a relevant degree programme with a minimum GPA of 3/4 or 4/5; OR
C) A pass on a recognised foundation programme.

Glasgow International College offers a number of foundation programmes which lead into the second year of studies at the University of Glasgow. For more information visit the GIC website.

Postgraduate Taught

We welcome applications from students with Bakalavri or a Specialist Diploma with a minimum GPA of 3.4/4 or 4.2/5.


The University of Glasgow is an established partner of the Russian Armenian (Slavonic) University (RAU). Cooperation between the two institutions allows students on master programmes in Accounting & Finance at RAU to join Glasgow in the January semester, and receive a Glasgow master degree after two semesters of study, and a double degree with RAU.
