Transition to Glasgow (T2G)

Published: 10 August 2022

All incoming undergraduate students for 2022/23 have been offered a place on the University's T2G course

All our incoming undergraduate students have been offered a place on our bespoke Transition to Glasgow (T2G) course. We ran T2G for the first-time last year with huge success, and have offered it again to our incoming undergraduate cohort for 2022-23.

T2G is offered to students on an optional basis. The course runs for two weeks from 22 August. Students take part in a core module around academic literacies/scientific skills, peer learning activity, and mental health and well-being. Students also select two elective modules from a range of subjects to study. We have courses on things like ‘solving murder in the lab’, ‘history of argument’, ‘what is America?’, ‘biotechnology through the decades’, and many more. Students can select the courses that most interest them.

As part of T2G, our students submit an essay to one elective. Students receive feedback on this elective before the start of semester. What’s more, students who complete T2G receive credit for the compulsory writing course for all students, the Academic Writing Skills Programme (AWSP).

T2G is an exciting, innovative approach to welcoming our students to the University. Run by Student Learning Development (SLD, formerly known as LEADS), the initiative was recently a finalist in The Herald Higher Education Awards.

All information is available from the T2G website. If you have any questions about the course, get in touch with the Head of Student Learning Development, Andrew Struan (
