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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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. 👍🏻
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～
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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]
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’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.
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.
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!
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.
