‌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.
