China

‌Did you know that the first Chinese student to study at the University of Glasgow arrived in 1886? We now have over 1500 students from China studying with us and links with institutions across China.

You’ll feel at home in Glasgow with a wealth of Chinese restaurants, supermarkets and traditional medicine stores in the city. Our Confucius Centre was established with Nankai University on a foundation of long-standing research collaborations between the two universities, including social sciences, arts and business, and in particular through the Scottish Centre for China Research. They run a number of Chinese cultural events throughout the year, including at Spring Festival, and in 2016 won the Confucius Institute of the Year Award. We also have a Chinese Students Society and an English & Chinese Club on campus – two of 150 different clubs and societies on offer.

You can now also study for a University of Glasgow degree at our partner institutions in China. Glasgow offers BEng degrees in Electronic & Electrical Engineering at University of Electronic Science & Technology China in Chengdu, and Master degrees in Urban Studies, International Relations, Environmental Management and Translation Studies at our Joint Graduate School with Nankai University in Tianjin.

Entry Requirements

Undergraduate

The University will consider students who have gained good scores in the Gaokao exam for direct entry into first year. Students who have taken a recognised foundation or access programme or equivalent will also be considered, as well as those students who have taken international qualifications such as the IB diploma, GCE A Levels, AP and SATs.

Postgraduate

We will consider applications to Masters degrees from graduates of national quality Chinese universities with the approximate entry guidelines given below. In addition to the minimum GPA requirements in a relevant degree, some programmes have core module requirements and academic performance in relevant subjects will be accorded greater significance and entry will be entirely at the discretion of the University of Glasgow. The requirements for each programme can be found at https://www.gla.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught

We can only accept top-up honours degrees with the final year at a UK or other university if the first 3 years were taught at an institution accepted for admission by the University of Glasgow.  Please note that we will require for you to upload to your application, details of all modules that you will complete in your final year of studies in order to process your application and make a decision for admission. We strongly encourage you to provide these details at the time of submitting your application, to avoid delays in processing your application.

Grades given below are the minimum entry requirements considered and do not guarantee an offer.

  • 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.
