About the Scholarship Provider:
The University of Glasgow was established by a Papal Bull in 1451. It is the fourth-oldest university in the United States and the fifth-oldest in Scotland. Along with Edinburgh and St. Andrews and Aberdeen, it was one of the four principal capitals of the Scottish Enlightenment in the 18th century. Only eight universities in the entire United Kingdom can claim to be “old,” and the University of Glasgow is one of them. There are four schools here: one for science and engineering; another for the arts; a fourth for medicine, veterinary medicine, and the life sciences; and a fifth for social sciences. The larger university is made up of several different campuses. Gilmorehill is Hillhead’s principal campus. The university’s medical school is located at Gartnavel Royal Hospital on Great Western Road, while the veterinary college, athletic fields, and dental clinic are all located at the Garscube Estate in Bearsden.
The Crichton campus and the teaching center of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Dumfries are jointly managed by the Open University, the University of the West of Scotland, and the University of Glasgow. We have undergraduate and graduate students from over 140 different nations. As one of the largest employers in Glasgow, it employs over 8,000 people, including more than 3,400 in the academic and research sectors. This prestigious university is part of the prestigious Russell Group of United Kingdom academic institutions. Urban campuses at Gilmorehill and Garscube can be found at the University of Glasgow. Dumfries, to the south of Glasgow, hosts a third campus. Accessing either of the urban campuses is a breeze because to the abundance of nearby bus and subway stops.
Glasgow’s convenient location in relation to the rest of the United Kingdom and the rest of the world is facilitated by the city’s proximity to two major airports and two large train terminals in the downtown region. Due in significant part to its enormous student population, Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, is one of the top five most popular UK destinations among tourists, according to the Office for National Statistics. Glasgow has a robust theatre culture, a plethora of high-quality shopping alternatives, and often hosts international events, making it one of the liveliest towns in Europe. Frommer’s and Condenaste agree that Glasgow is one of the top two places to visit in the United Kingdom. Sir George Gilbert Scott designed the neo-Gothic center of the campus, which is among the many university structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The University of Glasgow is home to Scotland’s only Department of Aerospace Engineering and the oldest Faculty of Engineering in the United Kingdom.
The World-Changing Alumni Award is given to those who have graduated with distinction and made a significant contribution to the world at large. The winner for 2017 was Susanne Mitschke, whereas 2016’s winner was Matt Fountain. Bonar Law, Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, and William Lamb are three more illustrious alums. If an international student accepts an offer of enrollment and submits their full application before the August deadline of the year of admission, they will be guaranteed a housing assignment. It takes around 45 minutes to walk from the main campus to the farthest of the city’s 3,500 hotel rooms, located in the northwest part of the city. Aside from assisting with university housing, the Accommodation Office in Glasgow also assists students in finding private rental property. Private housing includes hotels, apartments, and houses.
Three miles west of the city center is where the main campus of the University of Glasgow can be found in Glasgow’s hip West End neighborhood. Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city and one of the friendliest in the world, was named one of Time’s “Best Cities in the World in 2019” (Rough Guides 2019). Glasgow has firmly established itself as one of Europe’s busiest cities due to its year-round calendar of world-class events and festivals, diversified cultural attractions, outstanding architecture, numerous parks and open spaces, fantastic shopping, and vibrant nightlife.
All current students at the University of Glasgow have access to the Student Counseling and Advisory Service. The Welcome Team at Glasgow Airport will meet all incoming international students and help them get on the complimentary shuttle to their new dorms on campus. International Student Support provides an orientation session for new international students each semester. Pre-sessional English courses are also available for non-native speakers.
