France

‌The ‘Auld Alliance’ is alive and well at the University of Glasgow, with over 130 French students starting their studies at a world top 100 university every year. In fact, the French have been coming to study at the fourth oldest English speaking university in the world for over 400 years, with our first known student from France, Isaacus Mazerius, graduating in Arts in 1585. Alumni have gone on to work in industry, academia, media and management, amongst many others.

Interested in a degree from a world top 100 university in one of the world’s best student cities? Look no further! We do, after all, have so much in common - from a love of football / rugby, art and architecture, to an appreciation of literature, romance...and wine!
