I am unable to upload documents?

You can only upload documents that have been requested by an Admissions Officer. You will see any requested documents in the To-Do List on the Applicant Self-Service portal. If there are no items listed in your To-Do List, it means we do not require any documents from you at this time. If you would like to upload documents to support your application that are not listed on your To-Do List, please contact Admissions on ugadmissions@glasgow.ac.uk.

Documents must be uploaded in .jpg, .jpeg or .pdf format and must not exceed 5MB in size. There is a maximum 10MB upload size for all documents with the application. You can find instructions on how to upload a document in the video below.

Please note: this video was produced for UCAS and direct admissions applicants so some of the features in the video may not be available for UCAS applicants.
