Spain

‌We love the Spanish and the Spanish love Scotland, so much so that over 200 Spaniards come to the University of Glasgow every year, playing an active part in our diverse and international campus. It’s been like this for over a century (although our connections go back further) - our first known Spanish student was Manuel Álvarez Florencio, who studied Science & Engineering from 1874-1876. Many (not all, some decide to stay) graduates return home to enjoy careers in media, education, commerce, engineering and other professions.

With so much in common, it is hardly surprising that so many come to the land that has more world-class universities per head of population than anywhere else! Our shared passion for food, art, architecture, football, tapas and wine all help too and mean you will feel very welcome in your new home, as evidenced by our Hispanic Society.

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.
