‌The University of Glasgow has a long established relationship with Turkey dating back to the late eighteenth century; with our earliest recorded student having served as Chaplain to the British Embassy in Constantinople. The University extends a warm welcome to students from Turkey and our Turkish graduates have gone on to pursue careers in Medicine, Business and Education.

Our campus is currently home to over 4,000 international students from 180 countries and is located at the heart of the west end of Glasgow, a vibrant and multicultural European metropolis.

Similar to Turkey, Scotland is a country rich in history and culture and it is this shared love of rich cultural heritage that typically entices Turkish students to choose Glasgow as their desired place of study.
