    Hi,

    I am an applicant from Malaysia. I'm wondering how open Glasgow is to alternative qualifications? I currently hold a Diploma (2.5 years) at a Distinction level. Would it be considered as at least one A-Level subject, or two?

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    I applied for Biomedical Engineering for 2012 entry. Narrowly missing the automatic unconditional grades and so I received an email stating that my application will be held until all applications have been reviewed in January 2012 and that I will get an update sometime in March. I am just wondering if its possible to get any news before March? It's just that I am really excited about the course and the waiting is frustrating!

    Thank you in advance!

    HI There,

    So glad you are excited about the Engineering programme.

    The end of March is the latest you will find out what the decision is, so it could be a bit before then, it is all dependant on how many applications we receive as to how quick we can let students know. We will do our best to ensure you aren't waiting too long.

    Many Thanks

    I have submitted an application online for a masters program. The reply online is listed as conditional. I am three months from finishing my undergrad and so once I submit my final transcript it will change to unconditional, yes? So it means I'm in?

    Hi there

    Thanks for your enquiry. If you fulfil the conditional offer then yes, it will become an unconditional offer after you finish your undergraduate degree and you have a place

    I have a question about Primary Education. Recently I got an interview for the Dumfries campus for the 2nd of February yet yesterday I got an unsuccessful offer for Primary Education at the Glasgow campus. The rejected was based on my results. What I fail to understand is why would Glasgow campus reject me on my grades but Dumfries give me an interview if they are both like the same university in a way?

    Hi

    Thanks for your message.

    Dumfries requires different entry requirements for some of their programmes and this could be why you have different offers. For up to date information on our requirements (grades, work experiences, extra qualifications needed) check out our website:

    HI

    You will receive an offer letter stating the conditional requirements, this should also be available online also.

    Hi there,

    Was wondering whether you can still apply to Glasgow University on a transfer basis if you are currently at a different university (in my case Durham), but want to study a course at Glasgow different than the one I am currently studying at present?

    If so, how does this type of application differ from a normal application on UCAS?

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    Yesterday I've got a conditional offer for undergraduate Economic studies at University of Glasgow. The language requirements are IELTS at 6.5 with no subset under 6. Today, I've got the results of IELTS exam and my band score overall is 6.0 ( listening: 6.5, reading: 6.0, writing: 5.0, speaking: 6.0). I was wondering what should I do? Are there still any possibilities that I would get in?

    Hi there

    Basically i need information on wheather or not i would be able to study the law course at glasgow, i am hoping to send my application away towards the end of this year hoping to study a course in 2013.

    the only problem i have is that i didn't decide on my career choice untill midway through 5th year and i was only doing one higher at the time though i was able to pick up one more higher but i wasn't allow to do anymore as courses had gone into to much depth.

    in the end i achieved 2 A's for my highers in 5th year which were business Managment and Modern Studies.

    In 6th year i choose to study 5 highers in english,computing and crashed 3 which were RMPS, Geography and Spanish.

    As of now i have 5A's and 2B's is there any chance i would still have a chance of getting an offer for glasgow

    thanks.
