India

‌The first Indian University of Glasgow students arrived in 1870 and the first graduate was Gopal Chandra Roy from Bengal, who qualified as a Doctor in 1871. Dr Marbai Ardesir Vakil from Mumbai was our first female Asian graduate in 1897.  During the first half of the twentieth century, over 1000 Indian students came to the University of Glasgow. The most popular subjects were Engineering and Medicine.

The Indian community is one of the largest and most established ethnic communities in Scotland with a population of around 10,500. Glasgow has an excellent mix of Indian restaurants, shops and cultural organisations and is home to the Scottish Academy of Asian Arts (SAAA) which provides training in dance, tabla, classical Indian singing, drama, visual arts and henna painting.

  • 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.

What our students say

Drishti Dudani, International Banking and Finance MSc

"Spending a year studying my Masters (Msc) in International Banking and Finance at the Adam Smith Business School has been one of the most memorable years of my life. It has been a pleasure studying at the University of Glasgow, after completing my Bachelors in Mumbai, even though studying at Glasgow has been quite challenging since the method and quality of teaching is quite advanced.

The experience of living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world has been a dream come true for me. From living in university student accommodation to exploring the city as well as enjoying the vast culture of the country has been a pure joy.  All the more so because Glasgow is said to be such a friendly city, which is undoubtedly true. The people around the city are very hospitable and welcoming. The culture and heritage of the city is apparent everywhere as even the university itself is over 500 years old.

I feel proud to be called a "UofG" alumnus today after experiencing all the ups and downs and having faced many challenges during the period of my study. I will always cherish the experience and it will always hold an important place in my life."
