University of Glasgow

About the institution

The University of Glasgow is a Russell Group member. It was founded in 1451, making it the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. The university has three main campuses: Gilmorehill and Garscube are both based in the West End of Glasgow, with museums, galleries and parks close by, while Dumfries is in the south west of Scotland. Unlike most universities, Glasgow has two student unions: Glasgow University Union and the Queen Margaret Union. Both are very active and there is a friendly rivalry between them dating far back into the university’s extensive history.
