The University of Glasgow has a strong history with Chile and has been welcoming Chilean students since the late 1800s. Tomás de la Barra Fontecilla from Chile was the first ever international student to obtain a PhD at the University was in 1924.
The University is delighted to currently have around 20 registered Chilean students. We also boast a strong link with Chile including a very popular student exchange programme with Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
