The University of Glasgow has a long established relationship with Norway and in the last five years has welcomed over 300 Norwegian students to study at the University in our various undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Particular popular areas of study amongst Norwegian students include Engineering, Psychology, Politics and Law.
The University offers Norwegian students the opportunity to gain an internationally respected degree but also the chance to study in one of Europe’s most diverse cities. Further, with a large Nordic population and similar cultural traditions, including the annual Burns Supper celebration and a combined love of whisky, many Norwegians feel right at home in Scotland’s Dear Green City.

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.
