Singapore

‌‌‌Our first students from Singapore arrived in 1947 to study Medicine and Science. Since then many Singaporean students have come to the University and studied a range of subjects including Aerospace Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science and Biomedical Sciences. The university has a Singapore Student Society and there are currently around 50 students from Singapore studying at Glasgow.

Glasgow is a multi-cultural city with a large Chinese population. Chinese students will also find local provisions good with access to Chinese supermarkets and traditional Chinese medicine stores in the city. There is also a Glasgow Chinese Student Society and Scholars Association.

We also have an active Muslim student society. The Glasgow University Muslim Students Association (GUMSA) is open to helping you with any enquiries relating to your Muslim faith prior to arriving in Glasgow and once you're here.

Entry Requirements

Undergraduate

The University accepts the H2 and Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Advanced (GCE A Level). The university also welcomes the following qualifications: International Baccalaureate (IB) and the South Australian Matriculation Certificate. Entry requirements for Singapore GCE candidates are three A Levels at specific grades. H2 are considered equivalent to A Level on a subject for subject basis.

Students with AAB performance in A Levels/ IB may be also eligible for year 2 entry to a number of Engineering and Science degree programmes.  Diploma-holders (completion of the 3 year polytechnic Diploma) may also be considered for entry (typically with entry to year 2 or 3 of a 4-year degree programme) on a case by case basis. Usually a grade average of at least a ‘B’ would be needed.

Postgraduate Taught

We will consider applications to Masters degrees from graduates of Singaporean universities with a good Honours degree (usually the equivalent of a second class upper or a grade point average minimum of 3.0).

  • 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.
