Student Testimonials

"I would describe the University of Glasgow as exciting and dynamic. The best thing about being a student here is the number of additional opportunities that are available. I was initially attracted here by my supervisor, the school’s reputation, and my career goals.

The best thing about the degree is having the freedom to think of an research idea and test a prediction. I feel extremely lucky to be in an environment that allows me to conduct research on what interests me the most, so in all my time here I have never felt bored.

To any new student coming to the University, I would say this: Throw yourself at every opportunity that comes your way. If it gets too much, you can always scale back, but those opportunities can make all the difference between getting what you want and having to settle for second best."


"The city had a role in attracting me here, but mostly I was impressed with the research carried out in the school and by the new centre of cognitive neuroimaging.

The University is multicultural, open, committed to research at the highest standards. I would say the best thing about being here is the scientific environment, especially the supportive training at school and college level. This is great because of its general applicability. Of course developing expertise in my specific field of research is the other big motivation.

The University offers a fantastic academic environment, seminars, interdisciplinary initiatives, as well as a remarkable library and sport facility. For these reasons, I would heartily recommend the University of Glasgow to other students. I would encourage them to enjoy and exploit the trainings, seminars, academic expertise, and social networking to the full. By doing that I have discovered how science is made from within, seized opportunities to develop all sorts of skills, and enjoyed rewarding social exchange and cultural life."
