This year the University of Glasgow climbs the league table by 2 places, and the university achieves the 2nd best Graduate Prospects in Scotland, and 21 Top 10 subjects including Education, which sits steady as 2nd best in the UK. Founded in 1451 the university offers students a great sense of history – but its research and education are bang up to date, with Glasgow scientists playing a leading role in the first observation of gravitational waves, confirming Einstein’s last unproven theory.

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, known for its banter and a great night out. Students also get 2 unions to choose between: the Queen Margaret Union, known for its gigs, and the Glasgow University Union, most successful debating institution in the world.
