‌Danes have been coming to study at the University of Glasgow for a while - our first known graduate was Joseph Joachim who graduated in Law in 1889, although links go back over 250 years. Many more have followed and our Danish graduates are active in law, IT and academia, amongst others.

Many of the 30-40 Danes who start their studies at the University of Glasgow every year are attracted by student life at a world top 100 university in one of the world’s best student cities, as well as, of course, our Nordic Society. Why not consider joining them and share our love of bacon, islands, beer and Lego!
