‌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.

Meet Us

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.



We would be happy to welcome you to our historic main campus in the heart of Glasgow, where we host open days and campus tours for you to experience our University in person. For more information, go to: http://www.gla.ac.uk/about/visit/.
