Your university education: the Glasgow experience

International students feel right at home in the culturally diverse city of Glasgow. It is exciting to think that you will be receiving your university education in a place of great historical significance. The city’s history goes back to prehistoric times when settlers lived around the River Clyde. You can relax outside of your studies by visiting a large variety of theatres, including the Kings Theatre, Pavilion Theatre and Theatre Royal. There is also the Scottish Ballet, art galleries, numerous shopping centres and a wealth of museums, plus the world’s tallest Cineworld cinema. There is something fun for everyone!

Glasgow has been home to a rich variety of musical talent, including the globally successful Snow Patrol and Franz Ferdinand. In 2009 the city hosted the Mobo awards, and in 2008 was awarded the UNESCO City of Music award. International festivals run throughout the year, and in 2008 Lonely Planet recommended Glasgow as one of its ten top tourist destinations. In 2014, Glasgow was the proud host of the Commonwealth Games. You definitely won’t run out of things to do in Glasgow!
