‌To further build the relationship between Glasgow and Colombia, the University has developed a partnership with the Fundación para el futuro de Colombia, created subject links with Universidad de los Andes and engaged in collaborations with the British Chevening Association, Colombia.

In addition to a wealth of events held by our International Student Support team, our Colombian students are also invited to join the University’s Hispanic Society.

Entry Requirements


The University will consider students who have gained the Bachillerato (Diploma de Bachillér) – a qualification considered comparable to GCSE grades A*-C standard on a subject for subject basis - for admission into Glasgow’s foundation programme which is run by the Glagow International College. On successful completion of the foundation programme you will progress into Year two of the main undergraduate Bachelors Degree.

International Baccalaureate
Applications with 30-34 points will be considered for direct admission to most schools. Please note that there are certain exceptions.

Postgraduate Taught

We will consider applications to a Masters degree from graduates holding a Licenciado or Titulo Profesional. 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 4 or above is achieved, this may be considered for admission to a taught Master's degree course.


The University of Glasgow is fortunate to have a partnership with the Fundacion para el Futuro de Colombia (COLFUTURO). This partnership strengthens bi-lateral co-operation in the field of education between Colombia and Glasgow.

The University also has strong links in many subject areas with Universidad de los Andes.

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.
