Glasgow-uni-995

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. It is recognised internationally for its ground-breaking work and has inspired thinkers from eminent scientist Lord Kelvin to the father of economics Adam Smith. Whilst the University is steeped in history and tradition it is immensely proud of its past but focused on an exciting future.

Over the last five centuries, the University of Glasgow has pushed the boundaries of what's possible. We've fostered the talents of seven Nobel laureates, one Prime Minister and Scotland's inaugural First Minister. We've welcomed Albert Einstein to give a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity, and Scotland's first female medical graduates completed their degrees here in 1894. If you choose to study here, you'll be walking in the footsteps of some of the world's most renowned innovators, from scientist Lord Kelvin, to the pioneer of television John Logie Baird and head writer and executive producer of Dr Who and Sherlock, Steven Moffat.

With more than 25,000 students, the University is a melting pot of ideas, ingenuity and innovation housed in one of the most stunning campuses in the UK and in a city that matches the University in dynamism and vibrancy.
