Why is Glasgow the place to be?
Glasgow is full of life. Crowds of shoppers fill Buchanan Street. Buskers play music in the streets. Interesting art and sculptures can be found everywhere. The smells of amazing food from over 1,000 restaurants linger in the air.
Although it’s Scotland’s largest city, it’s easy to get around on foot. Everything you need is in easy reach of the University campus. There is always something to do. Unique events and festivals like the ‘Aye, Write!’ book festival happen here. History, architecture, art, music, sport - whatever you're interested in, you'll find it in Glasgow.
People from all over the world live in Glasgow and each culture has become a part of the city. The community that lives here is open and friendly, and particularly welcoming of students.
Glasgow has excellent transport links for you to explore the UK. A train to Edinburgh - Scotland’s capital city – takes an hour. And, if you want to see the sights of London while you’re here, you can fly there in just over an hour.
