The University of Glasgow has been delighted to welcome Egyptian students for many decades to both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. We currently have more than 30 Egyptian students studying with us and look forward to welcoming more. At Glasgow, you will study to gain an internationally respected degree, but we can guarantee you much more. Glasgow is one of Europe’s most friendly and diverse cities and includes a large Muslim population. The city is home to twelve mosques and a wide range of Halal butchers and shops. The University also has a Middle Eastern and North African Society that allows students from the region to share their culture with all students.

The University offers an excellent standard of comfortable and secure student accommodation, with single-gender occupancy available. Furthermore, we guarantee a place for all full-time new Egyptian students studying for a degree (application deadlines apply).

  • 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.
