The University has been welcoming students from Taiwan since the late 1800s and today there are over 50 students studying on subjects across the University. We asked some of them about their experience of studying in Glasgow, and what they loved best was the historic campus environment, and opportunities to shop!
The City of Glasgow also has a wealth of Chinese restaurants, supermarkets and traditional Chinese medicine stores in the city, all helping to make our students feel at home and enjoy themselves while they study.
The Taiwanese High School Diploma/Certificate is not acceptable for direct entry to the University of Glasgow. Applicants who have studied A Levels, IB, a recognised foundation programme or equivalent will be considered for entry.
We will consider applications to Masters Degrees from graduates of recognised Universities in Taiwan, normally with 80% (GPA 3.2) or better. Many Masters degrees also have subject-specific requirements.
- University of Glasgow funding
The University works closely with National Yang Ming University, Kaohsiung Medical University and Taipei Municipal University of Education.

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.
