Ahlan wa sahlan

Over the years the University of Glasgow has been fortunate to welcome Omani students to both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. There are currently around 50 Omani students studying at Glasgow and we look forward to growing this number in the future.

The city of Glasgow is a thriving and contemporary city.  Middle Eastern culture is very influential here with a wealth of halal butchers, shops and a total of twelve mosques. Omani students are also invited to join our Muslim Students Association which represents and caters for Muslim students on campus.

The University offers an excellent standard of comfortable and secure student accommodation, with single-gender occupancy available. Furthermore, we guarantee a place for all full-time new entrant international students studying for a degree (providing students apply on-time).

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.
