Our city

If you're coming to study with us, you'll be sure of a warm Scottish welcome!

We're based in the centre of Glasgow, the largest and liveliest city in Scotland, a country renowned for engineering excellence, cosmopolitan cities and stunning natural beauty.

Buchanan Street, Glasgow, in the sunshine

Glasgow is a proud and vibrant city and one of the most welcoming in the world. It's a great city to live in, with great places to eat out, and world-class music, museums, culture and sport to enjoy. Glasgow - close to the beautiful landscape of Scotland’s west coast and with the Highlands and Islands less than an hour away - offers fantastic opportunities to explore the great outdoors.

  • collaborating on projects
