Malaysia

‌We have been welcoming students from Malaysia since 1911 when our first Malaysian student came to the University to study Engineering. The University has a Malaysian Student Society which arranges activities throughout the year and there are currently over 100 students from Malaysia at the university.

Glasgow is a multi-cultural city with a large Muslim and Chinese population. The city is home to twelve mosques and a wide range of Halal butchers and shops. The University has its own Muslim Students Association and student accommodation. Single-gender occupancy is available although we encourage early application for accommodation of this nature to avoid disappointment. You will also find local provisions are excellent with access to Chinese supermarkets and traditional Chinese medicine stores in the city.

Meet Us

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.
