We're a leading, international technological university located in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland's biggest city. We believe in useful learning which guides our research, our learning and teaching and the way we work with businesses and organisations.
We have students from Vietnam every year, particularly for our Masters programmes in business, including finance, management, HRM and marketing.
Representatives from our University visit Vietnam every year to meet students and we welcome students applying independently and as part of the VIED MOET scholarship scheme. We have an alumni group in Vietnam.
