Glasgow: a vibrant European cultural city

Glasgow: Lonely Planet's top ten cities to visit in the world

Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and one of the liveliest and most stylish cities in the UK (recognised by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 cities to visit in the world).

Glasgow is also regenerating at an amazing pace making it a "living laboratory" on sustainability, civil engineering, and urban renewal. Members of the department are contributing to the Clyde Waterfront Regeneration (Scotland's single most significant urban renewal project and development opportunity which is transforming 20km of the river Clyde from Glasgow city centre).

If English is not your first language

Pre-Sessional English & Study Skills Course

This course is for international applicants starting a degree at the University in September.

The programme offers you the chance to take as many courses as you need, depending on your entry level of English and the time needed to reach the required level of academic English proficiency. This is usually specified as IELTS 6.5 - with no individual section lower than 5.5, or equivalent for postgraduate study. 

Find more information on courses, fees and entry levels required for Modules 1, 2 and 3.

Free course

Module 3 is free of charge if you register on a full-time course of at least nine months duration and pay full international fees (you may need to pay Module 3 fees in advance with refund on confirmation of continued registration).

We strongly recommend all international students take advantage of this free course and attend Module 3. This is an excellent way to not only improve your English, but to start knowing Glasgow and the University and make new friends.
