The University of Glasgow is one of the UK’s oldest and most prestigious seats of learning, and is the fourth oldest university in the English speaking world. The University of Glasgow is recognised internationally for its ground-breaking work and has inspired thinkers from eminent scientist Lord Kelvin to the father of economics Adam Smith.
We are ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world:
- 88th Times Higher World University Rankings 2016/17
- 89% satisfaction (National Student Survey 2017)
- 89.4% international student satisfaction (ISB summer wave 2016)
- 94.9% of students in employment or further study 6 months after graduation (Higher Education Statistics Agency 2014/15)
- Glasgow is the world’s friendliest city (Rough Guides 2014)
I instantly felt at home. I am very keen on theatre and the student theatre society has become a second family. The courses I take are interesting and there is so much support available. I was terrified before I started and now I secretly wish I didn't have to come home over summer!

Student Life in Glasgow
Glasgow is one of Scotland’s great cities and boasts rich Victorian and art nouveau culture. It’s a cultural hub full of music, shopping, dance, museums, thriving nightlife, sports and theatre, and offers an iconic place for learning and teaching. The stunning campus of the University of Glasgow boasts over 100 listed buildings and its landmark neo-Gothic main building.
The University of Glasgow is comprised of three campuses: Gilmorehill, Garscube, and Dumfries. The Glasgow City Bus is the most convenient form of transport between the campuses and come every 30 minutes or more. Other buses travel through campus and the Westerton train station is only a 10 minutes walk away.
The Adam Smith Economics Society is a student-run society with the aim of bringing together students from across all departments that share a common interest in Economics.
We believe that academic economics in general, and economics curricula in particular have become too narrow and unfairly exclude a large number of fruitful alternative approaches. At the same time, the orthodoxy is accepted and taught uncritically, to the detriment of students. GURWES therefore aims to provide a platform for students and other interested individuals to explore and discuss alternative approaches to economics. We do this through hosting guest lectures, having workshops and reading groups, and providing tutorial sessions for students alongside other means. We also continue to campaign for a reform of economics curricula, both at the local level and as part of the national and international movements for pluralism. All students and academics interested in economics are encouraged to join.
Glasgow Student Marketing Society was established in 2014 in partnership with The Marketing Society Scotland with the primary aim of providing a platform where students can gain a better insight into the world of marketing and the opportunities that it provides. Over the past year we have collaborated with a number of established companies throughout Scotland including Tennent’s, Material Group, and Digital Impact. Members have the opportunity to attend seminars, networking events, workshops and dinners.
The University of Glasgow Business Club is a student-run organisation which provides activities for Business School students as well as everyone else that wants to be involved. If you have books to sell or are looking for a book, post on the wall so all members can see it. If You have ideas for the development of the club please post them on our wall!
GUCS is a society aimed at teaching members the skills strategy consultants use during their engagements.
