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.

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.

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.

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...

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.
