Syria

The University of Glasgow has been welcoming students from Syria for many decades. We understand that student life in Glasgow goes beyond studying and that socialising with other students is an important part of living abroad. We offer our Syrian and international students a dedicated International Student Support service.

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 Muslim population. The city is home to twelve mosques and a wide range of Halal butchers and shops.  Furthermore, the University has its own Muslim Students Association which represents and caters for Muslim students on campus. 

The University offers an excellent standard of comfortable and secure student accommodation, with single-gender occupancy available. Furthermore, we guarantee a place for all full-time new entrant international students studying for a degree (providing students apply on time).
