The vision of Glasgow College, UESTC and Glasgow College Hainan, UESTC is to combine the strengths of two world-class university systems to provide our students with the benefit of a truly global educational experience, while pursuing exciting and innovative collaborations in learning & teaching, research, and the sharing of knowledge.  

It is a place that inspires ambitious people to succeed. A place where inquiring minds can develop their ideas. A place where talented people are given the space to realise their dreams. 

Our joint degree programmes, delivered entirely in English, build on the strengths of the Chinese and British education systems and will prepare students for their career better than either University can do alone.
