Slovakia

‌Slovakians have been coming to study at the University of Glasgow for many a year - our first known graduate being Herbert Kay (né Koniec), who graduated in 1952 with a Medical degree, after fleeing the Nazis. Other alumni include industrialists, academics and other professionals, originally attracted to the University of Glasgow by student life at a world top 100 university in one of the world’s best student cities.

With more world-class universities per head of population than anywhere else, why not join the 60-80 Slovakians who commence study in Scotland at the University of Glasgow each year? An added benefit is the opportunity to compare castles, sample our dynamic culture and explore a multitude of natural and urban environments.

See what your compatriots get up to via our Slovak & Czech and Central and Eastern European Studies societies.

Representatives

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.
