Scottish people are very friendly and kind. Glasgow is a very comfortable city to live in, not too big or too small as a city.

University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow is one of Scotland’s four ancient universities, dating back to 1451. The university is particularly famous for medicine and veterinary medicine and is one of the 24 Russell Group universities, dedicated to the highest level of academic excellence. 

 

Glasgow Caledonian University

Glasgow Caledonian University is known to have excellent links with industry and many courses have accreditation from professional bodies with opportunities for work placements and to study or work abroad. The university is recognised as the largest provider of NHS healthcare graduates in Scotland, particularly in nursing and midwifery.

 

University of Strathclyde

Founded in 1796, the University of Strathclyde is Glasgow’s second-oldest university. Strathclyde is home to Scotland’s largest faculty of engineering as well as Scotland’s largest provider of teacher education. The university is currently in the process of transforming its campus and investing £1 billion by 2023.

Glasgow School of Art

The GSA is known as one of Europe’s leading institutions for education and research in visual creative disciplines. Established in 1845 as one of the first Government Schools of Design, the school's purpose remains the same now as it was then, ‘to contribute to a better world through creative education and research’.

Shopping

 
The Barras’ market in the East End of Glasgow is a historic flea market (officially called ‘Barrowland’, and you’ll find the old Barrowland Ballroom next to it) is a slice of proper Glaswegian history, and you can still dig out a bargain amid the stalls and market traders you’ll find there. Just a few streets over is Glickman’s, the oldest sweet shop in Glasgow.

For the rest of your retail therapy needs, the majority of high street stores can be found around Sauchiehall Street, in the city centre. For independent shops, vintage outlets, and boutiques, go to the West End.

Museums & Galleries

Glasgow boasts over 20 museums and galleries with the added bonus that most are free to visit! Some of the most popular ones are the Gallery of Modern Art, The Lighthouse (check out the great views of the city),  Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and Riverside Museum

Street Art

In 2008, Glasgow City Council set about rejuvenating the city by asking artists to create murals around the tired streets and buildings. There is now a mural trial you can follow through the city centre so you can see all the beautiful and diverse pieces of art. 

Music

Glasgow was named the UK’s first UNESCO city of music due to its legendary music scene that crosses many genres. You can watch live music every night of the week. Here are a handful of popular venues: The Barrowland Ballroom, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Òran Mór, SWG3 and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

Theatre 

Glasgow is home to the renowned Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera who are residents at the Theatre Royal, the oldest theatre in Glasgow, that also puts on a wide variety of drama, comedy, dance and musicals. Make sure you check out independent cinema, Glasgow Film Theatre, for a unique and diverse film programme. Join their free ‘15-25 Card’ scheme and get standard GFT tickets for just £6!

Glasgow has a large international student population thanks to the number of students who choose to attend the local universities, so if you enjoy the night life you will surely find plenty of clubs to visit.

From what I gather, the cost of living is cheaper than other cities in the UK. However, as an international student, eating out is still expensive and so is the public transport. The bus system is rather disappointing, with the infrequency, less connnectivity and high ticket prices. On many occasions, walking to the destination takes only a few minutes longer than taking the bus. read more

Glasgow has a great cost of living and is a very vibrant artsy city. Unfortunately I will probably not be staying on as I think other cities like Edinburgh and London are better if you want to work in larger companies. The buses are rubbish since it's run by two different companies, and they never come on time. The subway is great where it runs but is geographically very limited to the city centre and west. It's also a bit spenny, at about £3 for a return trip. Great places to eat in the city though, and if you ever get bored the rest of Scotland is on your doorstep! read more

A good student city with decent living expenses. Restaurant and bar options are aplenty, but vegans/vegetarians might have a tough time finding good ones. Clubs have reopened after COVID and Friday and Saturday nights are quite lively in the city. Shopping locations are mostly concentrated on one or two streets in the City Center but you get everything you need somewhere in Glasgow. As for public transport, subway cards, 16-25 railcard, and bus day/week pass help you save a bit of money while travelling. Bus travel is free for the under-22 age group. read more

Glasgow city is one of my favourite cities in the UK, as it has everything to offer .

Perfect for students! If you live in the city centre or the west end you have access to everything. You'll find a bunch of shops, restaurants and things to do. Only thing I'd say is kind of hard to come by are big grocery shops. You have Tesco, Sainsbury's Local, Aldi, Lidl, Co-op. These are all within 30 minute walking distance if you live in the city centre and apart from the Sainsbury's & Co-op the stores are of decent size but you won't get the big Tesco Metro/Extra or ASDA close-by. Those are farther out but you can take the bus or subway there. read more

Everything about Glasgow is great. This year I didn’t really get to experience the night out and the shopping but I still have memories from last year when I also stayed here in Glasgow. Public transport is excellent and quite cheap too. The night outs were very enjoyable and was a good time to relax and take time of studying 24/7. There’s very nice spots to catch lunch or dinner in Glasgow city and west end. So all in all Glasgow has been the best city any student could ask for. There’s so much to do that you’ll never get bored at least in a “covid less” world. read more

Glasgow is a grea...

Glasgow is a great city for those creatively inclined. You can usually find a part time job to hold you over while you study and the night life is usually on 5 out of 7 days a week and is always eventful. Depending on what area you live in the rent will differ but the cheaper options tend to be just as well kept if not better than some of the more pricey west end flats. The people are nice but like most cities it has its vices but nothing on a level that will ruin your experience here or that will be noticeable for anyone not looking for them. The bad rep that Glasgow has is starting to soften and rightly so, it feels very much like the city is entering a new age but what that will be like no one can say. read more

The cost of living in Glasgow is actually quite high. The price is a little higher than that of other cities except London. But the Scots are really good. Most of them are really friendly. Apart from the slightly higher consumption, the other experience of living here is good, whether it is eating, transportation or shopping. All in all, coming to Glasgow is not to be regretted read more

My accommodation...

My accommodation was a costly one, but with little efforts, one can find cheaper options. I liked the warmth of the people of Glasgow and was amazed with the freedom and night life. Things are cheaper if they could be searched and eating out gives a lot of varieties. Weather is a bit of concern, but appropriate clothing can prevent getting too bothered by it. Travel to nearby tourist spots like Loch Lomond and Loch Ness is a must for any visitor of Glasgow. read more

Glasgow is a fantastic place to live as a student. Lot's of diffrent areas to live in so you can find what works best for your budget and great public transport (aside from the buses being kinda expensive). There's always something going on at a night so if you live close enough to the city centere you'll never be bored in the evening. Lots of options for grocery shopping though it's all well spread out so getting one of those old lady shopping trolleys wont hurt ya. read more

Utterly superb city to study in. Easily walkable with a fantastic Subway system, diverse array of boroughs and areas, endless array of food and drink places, Kelvingrove/Pollok Park provide wonderful green space, easily navigable city centre with every shop you could need. Nightlife is second to none - relaxed, friendly, superior bookings and venues. And when this all gets too much then the tourist trail of Edinburgh or the rural delights of the highlands are both less than an hour away. Just invest in some good coats! read more

Cheap to live in, with a lot for your money. Not very many down trodden student places - mostly vast Victorian buildings, with huge rooms (perfect for big parties). I really cannot emphasise enough how amazing the nightlife is in Glasgow! It has something for all tastes. You cannot talk about nightlife in Glasgow without mentioning Sub Club, even if it isn't your scene. It is the oldest sub culture club in Europe, quite possibly the world. Drawing in the biggest DJs on a monthly basis, as well as having two very high standard resident DJs - who on their own right are renowned world wide. read more
