New Zealand

‌New Zealand and Scotland share a common heritage. Around 50% of New Zealanders can claim Scottish ancestry and in fact, the city of Dunedin, which boasts to be the most Scottish city in New Zealand , was founded by members of the Free Church of Scotland, led by none other than poet Robert Burns’ nephew, Reverend Thomas Burns. With such a historical and familial tie, it is no wonder New Zealanders feel a kinship with Scotland and a desire to study here.

Entry Requirements

Undergraduate

The University accepts students with a University Entrance Certificate, a University Entrance Certificate with New Zealand Bursaries Certificate, or a University Entrance Certificate with a National Certificate in Educational Achievement Level 3 (80 Credits).

Holders of the Higher School Certificate or the Sixth Form Certificate will be considered for entrance into one of our Foundation Programmes at Glasgow International College.

If you are studying IBDP or A-levels, please refer to the webpage for the programme you want to study. Applicants studying the American curriculum should go to the USA page.

Postgraduate Taught

We require a Bachelor (Honours) degree, awarded after four or more years of study, with a GPA of 3.0 or above. Holders of a Bachelor degree (not Honours) are still encouraged to apply as applications are considered on a case-by-case basis.


Prospective Student Information Sessions

The University of Glasgow is pleased to invite all prospective students to online information sessions which will be dedicated to answering your questions about joining #TeamUofG.

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.
