University of Glasgow

Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is one of the world’s top 100 universities, and is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading UK research universities. Welcoming students from more than 140 countries, it offers a modern learning environment across two campuses in one of the world's friendliest cities. Students studying abroad for the year may apply for a $15,000 scholarship from the St. Andrew’s Society of Philadelphia.

The Setting

With Glasgow as a base, you’ll be in the ideal location to explore the length and breadth of the country. From spectacular scenery and adventure sports to breathtaking castles and some of the world’s best-loved cultural festivals, there are plenty of attractions to experience.

‌Glasgow’s location in the Central Belt makes it easy to explore Scotland’s other cities. Whether you fancy checking out the world’s largest arts festival in Edinburgh, uncovering Scotland’s finest concentration of historic buildings in Stirling, or even trying to catch sight of the Loch Ness Monster near Inverness, you’ll be well placed to tour this beautiful country.
