‌The University of Glasgow is pleased to be recognised by the Mongolian Education Ministry to receive sponsored students, and today we have a small number at the University on a variety of programmes, mostly Social Sciences.

Scotland’s links with Mongolia are fostered by the Honory Consul for Mongolia in Scotland, based in Glasgow. And we think you’ll enjoy our quality lamb and whisky, served with a good helping of humour.
