Hi everyone,

So I have an unconditional offer to Glasgow University for this year (deferred entry) and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go, but I'm still not a hundred percent sure... So it would be great if you guys (current or perspective students) could tell me why you are applying or already study at the University of Glasgow.

Thanks for any comments, they're very appreciated

It's top 20... how is that not good?

The uni is absolutely fantastic, it has a great student life and is well known for it's student politics. The two unions are amazing.

I'm an ex student and I wish I could go back.

I only found a couple of lecturers to come across as stuck up, yet they still treated me with respect. Also, what's wrong with knowing that you are working at a great uni? I would be proud if I was a lecturer or doing research at Glasgow Uni. As long as they don't brag about, it's not a problem.

I think he was talking about the nightlife and Glasgow does have a decent nightlife. The West End is quite nice too and there's a few bars around there. For the rest of Glasgow, I pretty much agree with you on it being a hole. :p:

not the lecturers, the students! what are you talking about, i didnt say anything about bragging?

i love glasgow and the people there but found that the university of glasgow didnt represent the glasgow that i know! as the majority of the people werent from glasgow.

just what i think, no need to go mad, im not insulting the uni!

The majority of the people weren't from Glasgow? I'd say at least 70 percent are from Glasgow or very close by!

i dont go to glasgow though i got an unconditional offer too; that was because i didnt want to live in scotland lol. Glasgow itself is awseome though, the architecture is fantastic, reknowned school and youll definitely end up with a respected degree. the students there are really cool and relaxed too, so its a nice environment.

+ they offer some really cool stuff. A mate of mine is applying for a snell exhibition scholarship to do his PHD at Oxford uni which glasgow has an affiliation with.

About half of the students here are from Glasgow or nearby. Tutorial groups are not necessarily representative of the university population as a whole.

I don't even know why the issue has even become so important in this thread. The OP is asking for information about the university and doesn't really need to read some petty little debate.

OP: there are lots of international students here so it's a really thriving community within the university so you should settle in really quickly and easily. Is there anything specific you'd like to know about accommodation or your course etc.?

45% percent are from within 30 miles. But in Scotland 30 miles takes you pretty far.
