Germany

‌Our German friends have consistently come to study at the University of Glasgow - for over 230 years in fact - starting with Johann Dietrich Philipp Christian Ebeling, who was our first German born medical graduate in 1779. Many, many more have followed and our German graduates are active in media, industry, academia and the finance professions, amongst others. In fact, we welcome over 350 students from Germany every year, one of the highest of any EU country, attracted by student life at a world top 100 university in one of the world’s best student cities.

Sample what some of them get up to via our German Society and why not consider joining them? After all, we share a love of beer (we have our own German Brewery, founded by a the University of Glasgow graduate), as well as an appreciation for the wonderful game, castles and sausage (although ours are square)!
