The University of Glasgow is just great!! :)
Except from the beautiful campus, the university of glasgow makes you feel at home and provides everything to make students enjoy the journey of studying
Amazing university and great professors and outstanding for reasearch
Great University, beautiful campus and beautiful facilities
The course structure was not that updated for my field of study
Good university with a wide range of subjects available to study.
As a university of glasgow student I had a really good experience and helpful career services, been pretty social as the clubs and societies are really active
Amazing staff and facilities. Located near all Shops.
So glad to have chosen university of glasgow to do my masters. Learned a lot and got to know so many people from different cultures.
Amazing facilities, quite self led learning, fun events
Im a first year law student and although i love the course and the variaty of topics which we cover, there is a lack of feedback making it hard to know how you are getting on until you get your final exam results
Easily going here was one of the best decisions I’ve made, the experience has been so fun I’ve got to try so many new things in and out of the college. If music is your passion this is absolutely the place to be in Scotland
Great accommodation lovley staff, new kitchens spacy bedrooms, group activitys are great to meet other students
Best university in Glasgow, right in the heart of the city providing a very good student life
Good university, good staff, great facilities
UoG has a huge community and long history and so the student clubs are naturally well developed. The new study buildings are really great.
Impressive university experience. Due to COVID-19, most students have only been able to take classes online, and I was impressed with my tour around campus. Even with online teaching, I can still receive correct guidance and clear knowledge
Great school, going there doing mbchb and got all support I ever wanted
it's a very good university but the connection wifi it's soo bad
90% of classes are practical so you actually get to learn what you need for the job
One of the most beautiful campus in UK in my mind, which has good facility, location and student management. But except this, I do hope UofG can try their best to realize more on-campus teaching activities like that before the pandemic.
Glasgow university has a lot to offer with lots of clubs and societies available.
Except the online classes, anything else is very good.
Good experience and it’s convenient to live here.
University of Glasgow was my first choice and i am content with the overall experience. The faculty, the facilities and the overall standard of teaching was high. I would highly recommend coming to University of Glasgow to anyone looking to do a postgraduate course.
The University of Glasgow offers great variety in study spaces & local amenities, with a wide range of student societies. It has been a pleasure to study here.
I think the apartment is very convenient to the school and the staff are very friendly
Very nice location for UofG students. King and warm-hearted staffs. Not that large but tidy and clean spaces.
The chemistry department showed a complete disregard for student concerns during the pandemic and the course was delivered in a disorganised manner with a lack of clarity and support.
Love the university I’m studying business and management it’s a great course . Got to meet alot of amazing people.. So far loving the experience
Good university with a wide range of classes and clubs and in a beautiful location.
An awful university. Unprepared for the world changes, super inadequate communication between university and students. just a waste of money and time. Do not come here. I repeat do not attend this school
Slightly ambivalent. The lecturers are great, the management regarding certain things could have been better. E.g. Recording of video lectures delivered, because of covid I couldn't attend one of the key lectures and it becomes difficult to keep up. (2) The Industria action. Mid semester students have missed on lectures and simply not examining those portions is not enough.
I love studying in the University of Glasgow. The professors are very nice, the staff is also very helpful and the locations/amenities are perfect for studying on campus.
My experience here at the university have been splendid. I wanted to meet and experience my university courses here in Glasgow, face to face rather than doing it online that's why I defferd my course to the next year and it was the best decision.
The university provides vast area in research and is efficient in every aspect
Good for studying and entertainment
University of Glasgow is a really nice university.
Amazing facilities to study in.
Uni has amazing faculty, infrastructure, facilities and unions. Everything you need in an ideal university, you have it at UofG. Proud to be a part of it.
It’s been quite a tough time at the university due to the pandemic. The staff support provided was not adequate
it is a great prestigious university.
Great experience, great facilities, great faculties.
Did my Masters at University of Glasgow and it has been great! The University is good and has great infrastructure and facilities. The course is structured well and gives good exposure. It is also such a beautiful place to study in!
It's a beautiful location to study, and it's been named the Scottish University of the Year. The current hybrid class system has made it easier for some pupils to focus on class.
Good University to study. Teaching and social life is great here.
The university experience has been good so far. There are endless opportunities in and around campus. It would have been great all the classes were offline.
Great place to study with great architecture. The university gives a feels of Hogwarts and also is very old making it very prestigious.
The University has been a great place to be for the first two years of my degree, and even when courses had to move online every lecturer was quick to make suitable arrangements. There is a wide variety of courses offered and the teaching quality is high. The university library is spacious and can host hundreds of students, and other new, modern study spaces are being built.
Best university for my financial course, good professor and variety of activities and events balanced for social life
Good university, i am having fun. The campus is great and has many study areas, most of which also have available computers to use. There are also various societies for all sorts of interests.
Very nice university, clean and new facilities.
Huge Campus that looks great. Lots of comfortable study spaces.
Great uni, patchy wifi on campus but reckon you’ll get that anywhere. Sports pitches are also far from the uni. However, the study and support facilities on campus are easy to access and really useful
There are many places available for study. The learning hub is great. I recommend going really early because the place gets full really fast. The wifi is not great at peak hours though.
A proper university with outstanding staff and learning
The staff is very welcoming, the room is clean and the view is great
Spaces are always crammed, and wifi often struggles to meet demand.
Prestigious university in a good location. Wifi on campus can sometimes be a bit hit or miss, and the library is always really busy but apart from that there aren’t many faults
The teaching and class activity is poorly organised. Not suitable for studying here!
A great uni, with great courses and staff
Excellent campus and facilities.
Pretty good but haven't had the chance to be on campus much
Currently, in my second year of my bachelor's degree and not a pleasant experience due to remote classes and all, certain crucial information gets lost as a lot of teachers do not respond to students' emails. Hope it gets better in my future years of study.
Really vibrant social atmosphere as there is such a mix of people from across the country. Not too boarding school dominated compared to similar top tier universities. Amazing learning spaces such such as the brand new learning hub. There is definitely a strong academic sense among students; people do care about their degree. At least much more than I would of thought for undergraduate level. Couldn’t recommend highly enough! Great options for nights out ie variation on clubs and live music bars.
Big campus with lots of study space. Can be a bit confusing to find your way about when you first start but you get used to it quickly
The university campus is simply amazing with a mix of old and new buildings. The new Learning Hub is fantastic with lots of spaces for study. There are over 300 clubs but most of them are focused on undergrads but are not exclusive to them. Computer Science Department has good faculty and a decent student support system. The student unions are very active and hold events regularly. There is a club for every sport but most of them require a university sports membership to join which I feel is inconvenient (and expensive). WiFi is available throughout the campus although its strength varies between buildings. Career Service holds regular workshops and masterclasses and also keeps us informed about placement opportunities.
Haven’t been on campus a lot, only about two days a week, so don’t really have much to say. But looking forward to working on campus throughout next semester!
Hogwarts in real life! Excellent campus, great Learning Hub, good teachers.
The university is helpful and there are a lot of facilities.
uni of ggow uni of ggow uni of ggow
It's frustrating that we have to pay to join societies on top of the 50k pounds I am paying the uni every year. I am a student..we are poor
It's an amazing school, and does a lot to help international students.
Really good university! Wifi is decent but the other amenities makeup for it
Lots of good facilities, WiFi is good and university has lots of green spaces
The best choice of University. Ever.
Excellent student support from lecturers and student support officers, outstanding campus building and facilities, great welcoming community feel for freshers which the University has clearly put a lot of effort into encouraging with events and such.
University of Glasgow is a well-known top ranked university world-wide. Students would experience the best study quality courses while also keeping their social/entertainment activities balanced within their timetable.
We don't have any offline class, I wish we can study in the classroom.
I am satisfied with UofG besides the faculty members. Some of them are so slow in replying email or being helpful in caring students' concern. My Good Cause has been waived for 3 months without any final decision. What kind of efficiency is that?
Lacklustre communication from the uni and unsatisfying covid updates
The campus is amazing! I really enjoy my time wandering around the school :)
Amazing campus, really good study materials
It's great, I'm really happy to study here.
Great place to study, very good academic support.
Nice campus with good view of nature
Tricky year in the circumstances, just felt like you were teaching yourself the course no matter how much you used the resources given. I enjoyed the course though but was hard to make friends on course.
Very good library facilities. Modern and comfortable campuses.
Couldn't go into campus all year but got my degree
Can’t fault anything honestly, always a laugh
I am very pleased with my living experience during my Masters programme here at Merchant Studios. It is a very clean and tidy building and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Any time there has been a problem or issue I needed help with the staff were eager to get it fixed ASAP. Also, the building is only approximately 2 minutes from the university of Strathclyde, and 5 mins from Glasgow city centre! It has made my experience here extremely rewarding and I’ve been able to walk everywhere as everything is in such close proximity. I would definitely recommend anybody to stay here during their studies and I would definitely come back! Thanks.
Love it historical and beautiful
Glasgow University scenery is very good, is a relaxed and pleasant university.I like it here very much
University often hold some activities but in this special period, most of the activities are hold online. It is not very comfortable honestly. We have few opportunities to meet new friends. What we could do is just to go to the library and try our best to explore something helpful.
You can enjoy almost every kind of facility in this university including one of the biggest library among all UK universities.
The management of the apartment is great, with strict security measures. In addition, the location of the apartment is very good, very close to the university. There is also a park next to it, where you can run and exercise.
Good support during the pandemic
1. QS top 100. 2. Ancient campus buildings like Hogwarts. 3. Professors are all of the high qualifications and the quality of classes are high. 4. Student Union provides many social activities.
The staff is responsible, has a good class experience and helps the students carefully
The campus is European classical style, which is memorable. The library looks so cool and the facilities are science and tech feeling. The only thing that made me feel regrettable is I didn't have a class in the campus.
Good university for studying business with good professors and facilities.
Everything is ok. Nothing to complain about.
The university gives me a lot of support during the pandemic.
Good place to stay—I love the staff members
In fact, the reason why I choose this university is because of the fascinating buildings (the main building). Now I would say it does not let me disappointed. I am so moved that the SU did a lot of things supporting the international students, like sending free masks and medicine. However, due to the Covide-19, I have no chance to go through the clubs and just made a few friends who are mostly from my home country.
Beautiful college! And great teachers! But tuition is high! Anyway, a great place with high quality education! :)
Have not much to say since I have been only here nearly a month and all my lessons are online... But so far I have been to the library and it is great, i like there is a study room special for graduate students.
Glasgow university school of medicine is a fairly big and accommodating group which provide a lot of aid for our coursework and difficulties. The amenities as well are always easily accessible and nearby each other which is good for students who don’t own a car .
The campus is great! I love the buildings there and our library is great. The uni also take measures to keep students safe during the Covid-19.
One of the best universities in the U.K.
Glasgow University was a wonderful experience. I fully recommend it.
The university provides many conveniences for students, such as the new study building. Student Union provides a lot of useful information including careers information, professional lectures and so on.
I like my school very much. It has good teaching system, historical atmosphere and good etiquette.
Because the Covid-19, I did not experience much. But the James McCune Smith Learning Hub and the university library are very good and it is very suitable for study.
The experience of learing in University of Glasgow is very brilliant. The campus is beautiful and the buildings are very historical. The teachers are all serious and responsible, and I have gained a lot of professional knowledge here. I love the gift bags given by the school, including Christmas and Freshman gift bags and so on. The library and learning hub are very suitable for learning, which can effectively improve productivity, so I often go to study there.
University of Glasgow. The school is very beautiful, and the faculty and staff are also very responsible.
best university ever, with friendly staff
The environment of the campus is very lovely especially the beautiful view. And teachers are very kind and focus on students's development.
The location is very good, about 10 minutes walk from the school, and the staff are very friendly.
The accommodation is very convenient and the facilities are very good and the apartments are very safe and there are a number of activities that you can attend and it's a very nice stay experience and I love it
University provides us useful facilities and help us solve many difficulties.
i like it , it is good and look fantasic
The building, facilities are various. For instance, library, gift shops, study hub building are so good and well experienced. Services for the international student is completed and satisfied me.
This university is very good. The library facilities are new. The environment is quiet. The teachers are responsible and patient at the same time. The environment of the university is also great and the buildings are beautiful.
UofG, three competitive advantages: 1. Location, Glasgow is the 3rd biggest citys in the UK, But the price standard is cheaper than other citys or towns. 2. Building, UofG main building is very elegant and beautiful 3. Academic support, the library and students sub are good enough to support The student's study.
During the school, I felt the professionalism between the various departments of the school. The arrangement of study and examination is relatively reasonable. The difficulty of the course is also acceptable. The school’s new learning hub is also very beautiful
The reception is so nice, and the facility is pretty new. Whatever the room or the kitchen is lovely and clean. The location is convience and near by the supermarket, subway and trainline. I went to the other accomdation West View is the best. I am so glad i can live there. 👍🏻
beautiful university with nice facilities and complete service. we can get lots of help about our majors here. just want to get to face-to-face classes as soon as possible.
GU is the best!!! Although this year is not so easy, the university and the staff here is really helpful to provide a better life and studying for students.
The university of Glasgow is an amazing university to go too. It is one of the top 100 universities world wide. It has an amazing campus, which will remind you of Hogwarts if you are a Harry Potter fan . Had a good opportunity to meet new people from different cities and countries . I hope you will enjoy it as i did .
Classmates are very friendly and teachers are very responsible. Because of the epidemic, I don't know much about various activities in the school, but the school is really beautiful and I am very happy to study here～
The common room downstairs supply many thoughtful facilities for us, gym and home theatre is also a big surprise, which means you won't worry about being lonely with so many neighbours.
It's such a great apartment where you can wake up every morning and open the curtains and see the beautiful river outside. The facilities of the apartment are very perfect and the service is very considerate. In addition, the location of the apartment is excellent, close to the station, supermarkets and commercial areas. Most importantly, it's close to the university
University of Glasgow is so beautiful and elegant with long history. I recommend Adam smith business university honestly.
The room is large and tidy. The windows are also large and you can see the scenery outside. The reception is also very nice and can help collect parcels.
The campus environment is so beautiful that I want to stay on campus every day. Besides, every time I send e-mails to teachers, they will reply in time and guide me to solve problems, so the school is also very efficient.
Glasgow it's a big, beautiful school with a long history and beautiful environment, clear air, very suitable for learning
Glasgow is the best. Love the castle ! Every time I go through it, I'm proud. security and staff are sooooo nice.
It's worth choosing here to stay. it's not only near the main campus, library, gym, and the subway station (around or less than 5 mins). It's also near Kelvingrove Park. The most important is that everyone in the reception team here is kind and nice. During the quarantine, they are also willing to help.
Everything was very difficult during the COVID-19, and the uni tried to do the best it could together
Haven’t had the uni experience because of the pandemic, I don’t really know tbh
Don’t know because I haven’t been in but it looks good from the outside
A great uni all round- academics and student experience included.
As one of the oldest universities in the UK with a long history, the education offered to students is very knowledgeable and in-depth. The campus is beautiful and the facilities for study, recreation and living are excellent.
In covid, a review cannot be made substantial enough to be objective.
Great university. I didn't have a chance to experience social activities due to Covid.
Great campus, beautiful buildings and friendly staff.
Studying at the University of Glasgow is short, pleasant and busy. Thanks to the teachers and classmates in the class for taking care of me, a person who never knew what community development theory is and came to study this major. The course content carefully prepared by Dave, Luke and Diane allowed me to get a MEd degree from ignorance of this theory. The classmates in the project often discuss their understanding with me. In addition, I would also like to thank CCDPfor providing me with the opportunity of placement, and manager Maryanne helped me a lot during the placement.
When three other classmates and I divided into a small group for a small trip in Glasgow, they kindly exchanged learning with me and introduced the local culture and history. Although I did not remember much of Glasgow’s history, I remember it was a very pleasant day. At that time, I had just arrived in a new environment, and sometimes I felt a little uncomfortable with the new environment. After that group assignment, I got much comfortable in later courses.
It's Glasgow uni, what is there to say about it but it's one of the best if not the best unis in Glasgow.
Great university but not so much activity in campus
I enjoy all the facilities on offer. I’ve not tried all the clubs and societies in the university. But the ones o have tried so far have been great and really enjoyed it
Great uni and a lot of fun to go to
The university is updated with the last technology and the professors are really helpful!
Great, except i have never been to the campus in my entire first year due to covid
Really good teachers especially in creative department. Staff friendly and helpful. Only management focus more on money then students and their experience which is a shame. I would recommend to study just because of teachers but don't expect being able to use studio after lessons even tho we are behind because of covid...
They were very helpful especially for foreign students
It’s alright, staff are friendly and there’s a nice work environment
Good experience so far although a lot of time spent off campus due to covid.
really good and helpful student advisers, lecturers, and staff. amazing course equipment available for students to use. each class has 10+ iMacs which is amazing to work with in class.
Due to the pandemic I havent managed to be on Campus, the campus looks amazing
Staffs and faculties in the uni are nice. The facilities are good. The campus is beautiful.
The University of Glasgow is a great university, with good faculties, very good internet and has a a nice atmosphere for studying. They also provide numerous clubs and societies to join, which allows you to socialise much more than without them.
Every staff from the Gibson street team is absolutely friendly and helpful, which gives me a strong sense of security to live here.
Competent co-researchers and the research-friendly facilities.
The university library has great facilities to work on-site.
Despite the online classes, the quality of teaching and student support at the school are excellent! The arrangement of career planning is also very good!
Not been there for a year but was good when I went
Collegelands has been an amazing place to stay this year. The staff and security have been so welcoming and friendly and I have loved every minute of it x
The university is amazing, lots of interesting courses, clear and straigjforward teaching
I actually have never been to have a face to face class there. But, the affiliates always help what the students need
Collageland has provided me with a great environment to live and study throughout my course of study. Even though I may be the only student that lives pretty far away from campus. Collageland provides an affordable place to stay and getting groceries are readily available around the neighbourhood.
Brilliant! I’m very glad to be a student of the University of Glasgow. Although current situation around of us made everything worse, UofG dealt all issues with the high level of professionalism.
The buildings here are great, and UofG has all kinds of clubs and student groups. Will be a good place for study and networking.
Overall, a great place to study
Not experience so much fun but the career services is great.
Very welcoming community. Great education
Due to covid-19, I do not really have an opinion regarding clubs and societies, student unions, since they were not operating. However, as an exchange student, I enjoyed my stay in Glasgow and my studies at the university. The online classes were good organised. The campus is beautiful. And the wifi at the library always works. There is nothing to complain about. A stunning university!
Beautiful campus and main building, modern library is my favorite
Good university. I have some many good memory there.
The most beautiful campus! Huge library which has been extremely useful during the pandemic
The most beautiful University I've ever seen. It feels like living at Hogwarts and the professors are quite nice. Due to the Coronavirus, we don't have many chances to hang out with friends or study in the classroom, but still, I want to recommend it to everyone.
I've only been in Glasgow for four days and I'm still in quarantine. But I went shopping before and passed by our uni. I thought the scenery of the school was very beautiful and I was looking forward to the life of a student!
Been very supportive during COVID, with rent rebates and payments for food for all students. The tutors are very accommodating and The campus itself is beautiful, very historical and the architect is awesome.
This uni is ok. Not really experienced due to covid
UofG is a good university with good course coordinators and tutors who help students study a lot.
Very pleasant experience, very kind professors, and an amazingly beautiful building.
I feel the school didn’t care for students’ interest and instead of making things better for the students, certain staff made things worse for students especially during the pandemic.
I deeply feel the involution toward certain students if they made complaints about certain Professor and supervisor. The essay or the dissertation marking process is not transparent to the students but can be manipulated by certain leader in the major, for instance, an A5 dissertation is not even completed with vague methodology and structure, a lot of descriptive words and not referenced properly(with several references not marked but taking as the author’s own ideas), while an E1 dissertation is completely completed with various references and a clear methodology and structure. But the E1 dissertation author had complained about the supervisor’s unprofessional behavior like dictatorship of only allowing the student to have one research question with four objectives while others can do one research aim, several questions and terrible attitude towards the student. Moreover, the marking process is really subjective with not very convincing statement o
Terrible. As a student at university of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School, I feel some Professor is really mean. For instance, when at class, she deliberately ceased the cases’ video,not letting students to see the whole case. And when COVID19 is attacking UK, she wasn’t considerate and didn’t allow extension even other teachers already approved the extension, she withdraw it. Moreover, the marking and dissertation depends on students’ luck, especially the marking is subjectively manipulated. There is no anonymity and if the supervisor doesn’t like you, you will get extremely low score while some student with unaccomplished random writing dissertation( according to what the students original saying)and got A from some nice supervisor. The unequal outcomes revealed the low value from this school. So basically, it depends on luck. Should rather spend the tuition on gambling instead of giving it to feed the terrible Professor and supervisor.
The University of Glasgow and its Adam Smith Business School are excellent. I learnt many things and very happy to study here.
They have started using external security to keep us in our accommodation. These men have keys to every building, flat and room and can enter unannounced making us all feel extremely unsafe and vulnerable - what if someone was changing or getting in the shower? what if someone was sleeping and they came in? how can the university be sure these men won’t harm any of us? It’s ridiculous that we’re paying £120+ a week to be watched like animals.
University of Glasgow offers a great campus with many opportunities for students to socialise and learn.
It was amazing loved every minute of it
I stay in 333 for 2 years. I appreciate the staff team, particularly Safa who offers great and timely supports!
university life is pretty interesting.
I absolutely adore this university and am so happy I chose to study here. The professors that teach, the courses that you can choose from, the stunning campus, and the lovely students I had the pleasure of meeting. I would come back any day!
Great facilities, some academics are exceptional whereas others are average, good library
Incredible university. Beautiful main building and excellent lecturers
It is one of the top 100 universities in the world.
Have loved my first year at Glasgow University
It's a lovely and great university! Proud to be a part of such place!
There are a lot of activities that you can get involved in which makes University life much easier to make friends
You can't play game with Jniversity wifi I think they block IP haha. However, if you are studious type wifi here is very good for use to connect with University library website which allow you to explore many thing. Career service seems didn't help that much for international student who want to working abroad after graduated here
Great uni. Lots of socializing and teaching standards are not too bad.
Great uni with good facilities.
The location and the views in and around the University are great and there is so many activities always happening and support provided
Happy overall with my decision going to Glasgow Uni
A great place to learn and socialise. Great gym and unions.
Really good campus and beautiful location
Glasgow university is okay but it quite old. The library toilets needs more money invested in them
Great university. I have had a great time learning new things and meeting new people.
The facilities provided by the university are quite outdated, where the computers always tend to be lack of memory. The clubs and societies here are great but I believe they could be done better in promoting people to join.
I think my uni is a good place to study and make new friends in different backgrounds.
Perfect place. Perfect education. Perfect staff. No regrets.
The campus is beautiful. The university provides different trainings for students in addition to the regular courses.
Great university with a fantastic social element, and focus on transformation and development.
Really? My uni is great. Come to University of Glasgow. Come to Education College.
All in all, this is a very, very good school. The teachers, classmates, staff and residents around me are all very friendly, enthusiastic and helpful, giving me a very good overseas study experience.

UofG is excellent! is one of the best university in Scotland or in UK. believe me, you will not regret to join the UofG
The school network is very fast, it is very convenient to study in the library, the library only has hot water on the third floor, and it is not free, this needs to be improved.
There are a lot of clubs and societies you can find in GU. The campus is beautiful and pretty big and it is on the hill. You can do some physical exercise every day. The Internet works properly in the most time. Career services can be more friendly to international students.
this university is my dream university, not only because of the beautiful and ancient building but also the teachers in my major and the learning atmosphere in the library. All of these are the reasons I fall in love with my university.
A beautiful and large university. I can feel the history in this university and the environment is good here.
A good uni to go to. I recommend.
Great looking campus with lots of continuing development and new buildings being built
The campus is very beautiful. I enjoy every moment in the university. Professors are professional and I acquire a lot useful knowledge from the lessons.
GOOD choice I will recommend my friends this school!
Great lecturers and online services.
Everything is great, through the social activities, I get well with many good friends.
The building is so stunning as a university in UK. However, some of the lecturers are a bit tricky on the exam or mid term exam.
beautiful university！the staff is nice！
UofG has very comfy facilities, beneficial non-academic programs and career services. The uni administration has a supportive, student-friendly liberal mindset, which is really super-cool. HOWEVER, the teaching itself is not that great mainly due to the large size of cohorts. There are constantly striking unions of professors which cause the loss of a lot of hours of courses. This is extremely unfair given the amount of money and effort students put into those courses. The uni administration is not even slightly bothered by the situation and cba to respond to students' complaints for the loss of these hours. 6-7 weeks of strike left us somewhat shocked and has been hugely to the detriment of the course of my education at UofG. The programs expect you to compensate for those weeks on your own. With regard to teaching and strikes, they are in extreme need of getting their things together.
Great and beautiful university.It is a great experience for me to study in this university. The facilities are all good but sometimes it is difficult to find the classrooms.
The campus is pretty good, and service is great
Best university in Scotland and the United Kingdom
Good good good Good good good Good good good Good good good Good good good
I'm in GIC now, and I've had a good experience since August last year. The teachers are excellent and the lessons are good. GIC staff sometimes prepare snacks for students. It's very considerate.
Can’t fault our uni; something for everyone here and top notch teaching.
The campus is stunning like a magic school. Also, warm and kind staff.
School is very close to my accommodation, campus is quite beautiful. And facilities are very convenient
I seldom to join the social group for fun.
The university that met my expectations! I am having a lovely time here and the professors are remarkably helpful. The students are all friendly and are there for you. The campus is beautiful and when the weather is just right it is even more stunning.
Extremely well-regarded and internationally ranked within the world top 65 universities. Enjoys a great reputation for high-level research and pretty much helped me enormously in getting into a PhD program. Did a MSc in Data Analytics (School of Mathematics & Statistics). Academic requirements and workload are pretty high so is the quality of teaching and staff. You will get expertise from some of the best researchers, many of them at the forefront of contemporary science. The University has a strong academic mindset this is more suitable for research inclined students, however, might not be ideal for practice seeking people. Overall, I dont regret anything about my choice for Glasgow University, it is a world-class institution. The knowledge and skills learned here will open you many new doors so do embrace it.
Overall, my experience in the University was amazing. I started being a close-minded brat and ended up being a well-rounded individual with loads of experiences. I appreciate the personalised services provided by the university and would recommend students to apply for its courses. However, the academic experience needs more work and a few courses in my field were unexpectedly vegetative and could be improved when it comes to the tutoring or co-curricular activities. If University of Glasgow is in your mind, just go for it without a second thought.
High standard and excellent academic learning materials.
The facility in the campus are well developed, the reputation of the university is good as well
Excellent uni with a student centric focus
Great Uni with a great atmosphere
Great place to peruse your study.
Fantastic university with great lecturers
Many diverse experiences are offered by the variety of societies.
Enjoying my time at glasgow uni and clubs and societies are great. Good lectures
Beautiful campus, with an excellent library sits in the center of main campus. Well reputation. Abundant clubs for student to explore their interests.
Awesome university. I really like it.
I'm impressed. It's really good. Data science is a challenging course and has been thought well
The campus is extremely charming with some historical flavor.The service for students are really helpful(widely covering).
It is a very nice and beautiful university. The teachers and staffs are very nice and helpful as well.
It's great! I like the uni.. I just hate uni accom.
The University of Glasgow is really good. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can imagine your future more easily, having dreams that you want to succeed!
Perfect university, friendly staff :)
Beautiful compus, nice facilities, friendly people!
I am very happy to study here. The teachers are nice. The school provides a lot of extra useful courses. The school buildings are very beautiful. It is amazing studying here.
Good environment and very congenial place
Great educational institution with competent faculty and community
Very nice！the campus is so beautiful
really good experience The location is great and staffs are really kind helpful and responsible ! By the way, the heater is not warm enough
Don’t be fooled by its prestigious reputation and beautiful main building. Once this novelty wore off, I personally thought the teaching was dreadful with staff absences happening around twice a week. Anyone who requires any extra support will not receive this from this institution. I tried for a year to Change to a course that I was overly qualified for but with no avail. In fact, I reached out to multiple universities in Scotland and every single one were much more helpful in guiding me and more timely than my own! It is a uni that is filled with intelligent students therefore they don’t care about the teaching. What’s much more admirable is unis like glasgow Cali who don’t have the best rep and accept much lower grades but produce bright employable graduates - that’s when you know the teaching in the middle is great. Accommodation isn’t great (like most unis) however it is overly expensive and far from campus in most cases!
Very good. Always used the library
In general, very positive experience.
I would encourage prospective students to look elsewhere. Last year students missed out on graduation and even degrees due to the university’s appalling handling of the strikes and subsequent non reply to complaints and refusal to reschedule lessons and deliver them. This then escalated to bullying and harassment of some students for fees to be paid despite the students not having had lessons delivered for a portion of semester two. There is also an extreme lack of support for students at this university from any student association. Last year futures were put in the balance or even ruined by University of Glasgow. The exact opposite one would expect from a supposed world ranking university. Please see my blog for further details. This is in addition to appalling working conditions and modules being changed at the last minute so you don’t actually get to study what you signed up for or were promised. [website link removed]
Everything is perfect in the Uni !!Library ...teachers ...students !!!
Such a nice student accommodation
Really helpful advisors, great mental health facilities, lots of construction going on currently over a 2 year period which can be slightly disruptive though. 2 student unions both great!
Shocking level of funding for the sports clubs and societies. Other sports clubs at universities such as Edinburgh enjoy much better support.
affordable, welcoming, fun, and intellectually rigorous.
Overall the facilities at the uni are excellent however the WiFi is often slow or doesn't work. It is particularly a pain when using it for some computing science course work as it is not possible to do some tasks.
An excellent, prestigious university with beautiful historic campus. Great student life, including excellent student unions and societies. A relatively homogenous, white middle-class student body being the main downside (however, this is recurring issue at most ancient universities).
It has everything we need and is necessary. nothing can beat the facilities they provide
Overall a great university, vet school is amazing.
Absolutely love it. Go to Murano for halls, it’s the most sociable.
Treated like a number No care for students Took 4 months for an essay Mark, copy and pasted feedback Lecturers not interested in teaching , seems a burden to a few
It’s clear that students are no longer the focus of the University’s aims as they continue to fund research and cut student services. The campus library is large but still fails to have enough space for students particularly during exam periods where it is near impossible to find study space. Hospitality services are ridiculously expensive.
This university thrives off of its reputation and being a Russel group university. However, after you arrive you see this image is all a facade. I’ve just finished a 4 year degree in engineering and can confirm the engineering department here is a joke. The best way to describe it is that lecturers are researches who have been forced to teach in order to maintain funds for their research. Students will always come second. The lack of facilities is astonishing for a university of this calibre. Approximately 150 computers specifically for engineering students this barely covers 15% of students in the school of engineering. Student support is non-existent. If you’re struggling you’re left for dust. The way the courses are taught sets you up to be a researcher not an engineer. If you want to do real engineering, apply to a technical university with industry links (Glasgow has none I’m aware of). Upon graduation they’ve done nothing to help me into working life and provide career support.
Dedicated teachers and excellent social life and societies. Glasgow is a very bustling and friendly city, and the university has a great reputation.
They don’t record lectures which makes it difficult
The university of glasgow is an excellent teaching and learning environment with lots to offer
always love GU, the things that arent so good give it character (like the ugly boyd orr building and the random numbering in the adam smith building), can’t imagine going anywhere else
Beautiful campus and buildings with high quality teaching on my course.
Very welcoming campus where everyone wants to make friends. Provides support and encouragement.
The University of Glasgow provides a great student environment, with great staff and great facilities. The student societies are of a top class, and the four student unions provide both great help and great enjoyment. One of the only problems is the eduroam WiFi, which is often quite slow or disconnects easily.
Amazing study spaces and socials organised by various societies.
Great university. Multinational
Can't really fault this university! I love it and it was my best decision to come here. All the academic buildings are on a campus which is stunning! Yet it's still in the city so you get the best of both lives! The city has so much character and also has its green spaces! I was in the best flat and loved all my flatmates! I didn't realise it was free to Europeans (I'm from England) so it's very multicultural and so interesting! The library is 12 floors but sometimes you still struggle for a seat but it's got the best book selection ever! My only issue with the university is the organisation of the Psychology department!
youd expect a place like this to not be filthier than the sewers. and the people arent much better.
I regretted attending this university.
There are to many students in this university, some classes have more than 200 students.
Can’t fault it! There’s two unions which is great and a lot of societies! WiFi is perfect, not had a problem!
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.
An incredible place filled with incredible people. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough
One star areas are just not something I looked into much to be honest. Unions are dirty buildings meant for undergraduates for the most part. The rest was decent. Great library.
Horrible bulldozing of historic western infirmary, and ever increasing limits on free speech, with an idiot of a rector
Glasgow law school is the 2nd best in the U.K. hahaha up you Oxford!!!!
Love the uni. So much to do, everyone is lovely, great members of staff - both teaching staff and support staff.
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.
An amazing place to study with awesome people and quality teaching
Friendly area, fantastic facilities, great place to experience Unversity life and study.
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.
The world best university. I like it too much. And inshAllah i have a plan for Master Degree in Electrical Engineering.There students are friendly and supportive.
Very lovely historical University.
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.
It's great to study at such an old university! Feels like I'm actually in Hogwarts!
Can't complain, it's pretty standard
Library is the worst place on earth
Glasgow is number 1 in scotland
So many cool societies, tailored to every interest!
No complaints, offer everything I can think of
Overall good university- however could benefit form more seating areas
Absolutely beautiful university, great campus and great location, can't fault the university itself at all
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!
All services provided at the university are excellent in almost every way. However the university accommodation options provided are far away from the university. An on-site car park would also be really beneficial.
It's all pretty good at Glasgow really
Beautiful campus, tons of societies and amazing Student Unions!
Have really enjoyed my first term at University of Glasgow :)
Wonderful university, great quality of courses and great lecturers and tutors.
Met so many awesome people, although there have been problems with wifi conNecton in my halls
I've had a great first year so far and met many great people. The uni is fantastic with great lectures/lecturers and there's always plenty to do with two unions and Glasgow city centre only 20 minutes away
The university of Glasgow suits me perfectly
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.
It's a great university with great facilities and fantastic teaching. I love the tea there too. ten out of ten.
It is billiant and I wouldn't change for the world
Very good education, great nightlife to go with it and great night at the unions
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.
Great university, staff all very supportive and Great facilities.
Great university, really moving with the times!
Feels like they actually care about the 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!
convinent wifi connection all over the campus, full of historical landmarks and academic atmosphere,professional teachers,lots of career opportunities
Excellent Uni! Massive range of clubs and societies, most of which are well organised and run. 2 student unions so better choice on nights out. Great prospects on graduating
eduroam doesnt even work what a f****** joke
Excellent university, friendly and helpful teachers/staff/Freshers' helpers
It has amazing student unions full of events where you can go and have a great time! There is also many many societies which you can check out and join.
The campus is big but easy to find places. The buildings are nice and lecture theatres I have been in are clean and a good temperature with students being respectful with regards to noise during classes
Only at the start of uni but feel very welcomed
The University of Glasgow provides a good experience for almost everyone, giving you the chance to study in a social and sporty environment.
Beautiful and well organised campus. Staff (acerbic and others) are on the whole helpful, and the degree content is second to none.
banter banter banter banter top banter
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!
I love my uni, from the building to the lecturers it's by far the best experience of my life so far!
Amazing place full of opportunities. Unions are top class.
I enjoy being at Glasgow uni. It's a fun place to be while also providing great classes. It does a lot to provide employment opportunities and diverse studies
Beautiful university campus with great wifi.
Amazing atmosphere and can sense the history on campus every time you visit. Loving university of Glasgow life after completing my first year.
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!
Great university, would recommend
What could be bad about a university that looks like Hogwarts? Both student unions are great and give you variety. Best uni in UK!!
Wonderful experience, no negative things to say at all.
Amazing experience, facilities and time!
Great university, Great facilities Wifi in all areas
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.
It's good for reputation but the eating facilities are rubbish . The canteen food is horrible . It is great academically
The university is beautiful and academically it is second to none.
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!!!
Amazing University that looks like Hogwarts.
They won't let you fail, they really care about their students. I've lived my time here so far.
Really loved my experience! A shame about the main union closing, but it is for a refurb I suppose!
Great university with a spectacular atmosphere. World leader for several research fields and exciting opportunities await.
Great campus. Spent most of it in Gilmorehill and Boyd Orr. Love the library and Fraser building - food offered is great. Great societies - STaG in particular.
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.
beaut campus, love the course and so much stuff to get involved in!
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.
The University of Glasgow is a vibrant, student orientated university in the west end of Glasgow. The setting of the uni is as beautiful as the buildings on campus. The only uni I have ever wanted to go to!!
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.
