City of Glasgow

main content

We're right in the heart of Glasgow - Scotland's biggest and most cosmopolitan city. The city centre has a vibrant arts scene, cutting-edge music, legendary nightlife, an exciting selection of places to eat out and much more. So studying with us goes hand-in-hand with having a great time.

Live music

Glasgow is home to many bands that are now international names and there's loads of new talent coming out of the city's live music venues. So whether you are into rock or indie, punk or even country music, there's a place where you can give your eardrums a treat.

High culture

As well as its thriving street culture, Glasgow has more than its fair share of high culture, with a year-round programme of arts and music. There are over 20 museums and galleries, and the city is home to Scottish Opera, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Scottish Royal Ballet.

Green spaces

People visiting Glasgow for the first time are often surprised at the amount of green space in the city centre - all the 19th-century landscaped parks and gardens are the perfect balance to the urban pace of life.

Sporting highlights

With a keenly contested rivalry between the country's two top football teams - Rangers and Celtic - an international stadium at Hampden and hosting the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Glasgow has a rightful claim to be Scotland's sporting capital.

The Highlands and Islands

With so much to do in the city centre, it's a wonder anyone finds time to venture out further - but with the highlands and islands less than an hour away, it's too tempting to resist.
