We currently have over 40 Ecuadorian students at Glasgow, studying a range of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. To further build the relationship between Glasgow and Ecuador, the University is currently working with SENESCYT to develop an agreement to offer discounts on tuition fees for students receiving SENESCYT support. In addition to a wealth of events held by our International Student Support team, our Ecuadorian students are also invited to join the University’s Hispanic Society.
We welcome students from over 140 countries, equating your local qualification(s) to an equivalent of our entry requirements. If you still have queries after reviewing, please refer to 'Contact Us' below.
The University will consider students who have gained the Ecuadorian high school diploma (Bachillerato) 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 Bachelor’s Degree.
The University will consider students that have completed the IB. Applications with 36 points will be considered for direct admission to most schools. Please note that there are certain exceptions.
For Masters degrees we are looking for a minimum 14 out of 20 in a relevant subject area.

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.
