Glasgow has a large Polish community, boosted every year by the 60+ students who journey from Poland to start studying at the University of Glasgow. Attracted by an education at a world top 100 university in one of the best student cities, our Polish graduates date back to 1843 when Loretan Dydynski, a refugee, completed his degree in Medicine. Many more have followed since then with alumni now active in engineering, commerce, academia or finance, amongst others.

- 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.
