What really makes this uni I feel is the library. Although it is often tight for space, the staff can really make your day. They always seem honestly happy to help with any problem you have. Coming in on a Sunday morning to write an essay for the next day (like I did this morning) is a pretty horrible thing to have to do, and getting a smile and being asked how your day has been by someone who actually seems interested really puts a smile on my face and motivates me. I can't recommend this university more.
I did a masters in economics and was very disappointed. Very expensive, yet you don't get much back, level is kept extremely low to make most students pass. The business model seems to be built mostly on a good marketing scheme.
A historically good university ruined first by its students, electing a pathetic rector, purely as a political gesture, wishing to censor free speech, and then the University Officials having a complete disregard for the heritage of the university and the surrounding area and demolishing a sizable ornate former infirmary block to throw up some glass monstrosity. It disappointed me more every year.
The whole university as a whole is a timeless location with great minds coming out from it and has been a crucial part of the Galasgow culture and life as a Glasgow Uni student is definitely at the top from great education facilities to great night life. There’s a lot for students to do in and out with the uni.
Mostly old lecture theatres, hence quite uncomfortable benches and stuff. Just like old churches. Computer labs in Maths and Stats building and Boyd Orr building are good. Lots of cafeterias and coffee shops around campus, but not always easy to find! Very crowded in the 2017/2018 semesters due to a mistake where the uni accepted too many students.
Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting. The experience I had with this University left me humiliated and absolutely dejected. I was treated with so much rudeness from the staff members and unbelievable indifference for a potential student trying to explain that their online account does not work. The man from the complaints team seemed absolutely bored with his job which would explain why he hung up on me and BLOCKED my number. What kind of University allows the staff members to act in this manner....absolutely dissapointed. It is not worth it.
Disgusting, disgusting, disgusting. The experience I had with this University left me sick to my stomach, humiliated and angry. I was with extreme rudeness from staff members and utmost indifference. It left me speechless how terrible they can be to potential students. I wish I had never signed up for this University.
Glasgow University is like studying at Hogwarts without the witchcraft and wizardry. It is a beautiful campus with lots of useful facilities surrounding it. The library is huge, and there are always staff around to help. There are many opportunities to join clubs and societies, the only criticism I would have of this is the funding for the clubs is not the best. There are two unions to choose from, GU is definitely the best if you can get past the smell of stale beer. Overall a great place to study!
Really friendly and lively, always someone to talk to! All facilities needed are available, there's nothing needed that we don't seem to have! Main buildings are beautiful with great views especially in summer. Also high level of teaching and staff.
Great facilities on campus with lots of events on and clubs to join. Wi-fi is a bit temperamental at times but this is not a massive issue. A great benefit is the computer labs open 24 hours for computing students which is of great benefit to computing students.
Excellent university with great facilities and an unbeatable reputation. I value in particular the learning atmosphere around the campus, the university's very dedicated academic staff and its extensively well equipped library; the UofG is a perfect place for studying and research!
Glasgow uni is the best decision I ever made. I study languages and love my course! The city is the best place to be as a student and the university is so beautiful - it's so nice to study in such a lovely building. Come to Glasgow - I can guarantee you won't regret it!
The University of Glasgow has a plethora of outstanding features, in a variety of areas. From academic prowess and achievements to sporting dominance - not forgetting the insane nightlife that goes with it! There's something for everyone. And not just something to get involved in, something to be proud of!
Surpassed all my expecatations, made my first year a stress free, fun, enjoyable experience. Really amazing university, already strongly passionate about it, would recommend it to anyone! Great for meeting a huge range of people, discovering new things and, at risk of sounding very cliche, really helping you grow as a person.
The university of Glasgow is as a whole a fantastic university to be part of. The campus is amazing with unique buildings which make it a pleasure to go to lectures. The societies and clubs are great as there is an amazing,large selection to choose from and allows for a wider university experience!! I can't wait to start year 2!!!
A fantastic and warm environment welcomes any student that is willing to partake in events and social gatherings. For students who are a bit more secluded, the university offers many clubs and societies that anyone will fit into and make friends for life. I know that I have made 4 fantastic friends that I will hopefully keep all my life.
Not always the facilities for the vast number of students - despite the library being enormous it is often jam packed. Any hope of studying in there during exam season is lost. Campus wifi is eduroam so is bad as a standard. Option of two large students unions is excellent, you can find any sort of environment you want. Prices are a bit on the high side for a union but still not as bad as in normal pubs.
The university of Glasgow is absolutely amazing! The city as a whole is fantastic and the university stands out amongst it, it also has extremely helpful staff and facilities and the option of a truly flexible degree.
It's a great university and if you make the effort you'll find really good societies and became very close to the people you meet. The Queen Margaret Union is really cool and a nice place to hang out, and to go to on Friday nights. The music is more varied than in the other union.
