‌The University of Glasgow has a long established relationship with Switzerland and we have been welcoming students here for many decades. Our Swiss graduates include influential members of industry, academics and health professional among many others. At Glasgow, you will study to gain an internationally respected degree, but we can guarantee you much more besides. Glasgow is one of Europe’s most diverse cities and includes a large Swiss population which tend to have more in common with the local population than our shared love of winter sports.
