Students at the University of Glasgow benefit from living in Scotlandâs largest city and one of the most vibrant and fun places in the UK. From its culture, music and arts scenes to its lively and varied nightlife, Glasgow is an amazing place to be a student. Itâs also friendly and has a relatively low cost of living, in comparison to many other UK cities. The uni has students enrolled from more than 140 countries worldwide, leading to a diverse student body who can choose from undergraduate degrees in subject areas like the arts, medical sciences, social sciences and engineering. Teaching is spread over three campuses in and around the city, all of which have their own facilities. A degree from the University of Glasgow is well-respected and among the uniâs notable alumni are seven Nobel Prize winners and a Prime Minister.
