Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2017

"The location, the fact that it's high in league tables, the community feel, having lots of clubs and societies, the beautiful campus, the up-to-date library and the expert teaching staff."
"It looks like Hogwarts and I love the beer bar on a sunny day."
"The campus is great and so easy to get around. The sporting facilities are amazing and my course has been fantastic."
"It has amazing campus facilities and hands-down one of the top student experiences in the UK. There's good support from the faculty as well as friendly people and a very high level club and society life."
"The area is beautiful and there are a lot of facilities, activities and bars that are ideal for students. There is a friendly atmosphere as well and the library is nice and big."
"The location within the city, by this I mean the leafy suburbs of the West End and Kelvingrove Park. As well as this, Glasgow is a great institution for innovative ideas because of the reinforcement of this ideology that each student should create a thesis in every project they undertake."
"The University of Glasgow has great facilities and high-quality teaching. The careers service is a real asset too."
"The facilities and extracurricular options are great. There are a lot of things to do outside of the courses themselves, from sports to film, there is something for everyone. The University of Glasgow also has a constant buzz with plenty of opportunities available for students and lots of events throughout the year."
"Glasgow is a cheap city so living costs are cheap and so is going out and socialising. The campus is all in one place, which is very convenient and saves time when you have lectures back to back. The university has a lot of societies to choose from, which helps you meet new people, especially if you are away from home like me. The gym is cheap and affordable but with a lot of equipment that is new and up to date."
"Computers are readily available for engineering students due to having multiple labs across two buildings. Advisors are really helpful with degree problems and offer great advice to students. Lecturers are easy to contact and are easy to schedule 1-to-1 meetings with. There is more than one students' union so there are lots of events going on all the time as well as a large variety of societies that students can join."

"The university is very organised in general and very helpful. The classes I take are fantastic. The facilities offered to students are very good and it has two student unions as well as hundreds of clubs and societies! There's a great student life on campus and there's always so much to do! The university is in a wonderful part of Glasgow as well."
"It's a spectacular looking university, the people are all very friendly and the course is exactly what I wanted. As a third year, I am finding the course really interesting and fun."
"It's a great location for the social life in Glasgow, we have two unions! On the course side of things, we're second-to-none for placement opportunities."
"The support from staff, the city and the university as a whole."
"It's a great university with good classes and supportive lecturers. There's a good social life with plenty of different societies and activities to try. Having exams before, rather than after, Christmas is a plus."

"The access to a wide range of study materials and the beautiful buildings. It's a highly-respected university with a lot of guest lecturers."
"It has a very good name for itself and Glasgow is a fantastic city with a great social scene and a rich, vibrant history."
