The University of Glasgow has helped foster the talents of some of the greatest thinkers, innovators and leaders of all time. Lord Kelvin, Adam Smith, John Logie Baird, James Watt, David Livingstone and Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell are just a handful of the many world-changers who have drawn inspiration from their time here in Glasgow.
That list of people grows longer every day because Glasgow is a place where everyone has the opportunity to change the world. Regardless of your background, if you have the talent, drive and enthusiasm to excel, we’re here to inspire and support you.
Here are just a few of our inspiring people:
