‌Students from Bangladesh have been coming to the study at the University of Glasgow for decades – and are warmly welcomed by the staff and students alike.  Glasgow is home to one of the largest South Asian communities in the UK so you will have the opportunity to mix with people from your home country while also enjoying the people and city of Glasgow. In 2009, the University was delighted to award an honorary doctorate to Prof. Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank.

Meet Us

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
