‌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 Glasgow International College. On successful completion of the foundation programme you will progress into Year two of the main undergraduate Bachelors Degree.

The University will accept A-levels and IBDP for direct entry. Please visit the webpage for the programme you want to study. Students studying SAT/ACT/AP Exams should go to the USA page.

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.

Undergraduate Information Session

The University of Glasgow is pleased to invite all prospective undergraduate (Bachelors) students to online information sessions which will be dedicated to answering your questions about joining #TeamUofG.

The team will give a presentation covering the undergraduate application process, entry requirements and student life. There will be time at the end of the presentation for you to ask questions.

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.
