Overall Experience
I learned a lot about myself, in my abilities both mentally and physically. I gained a lot of independence on this experience that I would never have been able to gain without it. Although the timing of my abroad program was not ideal (Last semester of senior year) I am glad I had the ability to still participate in this program... - Washington State University View Entire Review
I gained a lot of knowledge about how to interact with people not from my culture as well as how to travel in the easiest way possible. I learned that public transportation is amazing and something I wish we had more of here. I also realized that you can't be afraid to travel anywhere or do anything or try any food because every... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I gained a very valuable graduate level research experience as an undergraduate which was very critical in helping me to decide whether or not graduate school was right for me. I learned a lot about myself as a person and as a student and was able to gain invaluable experience as a researcher. - Spelman College View Entire Review
I learned how to immerse myself in other cultures, travel by myself and drink whiskey without choking. I learned how to survive near-constant rain and wind, and I learned how to make connections with new people quickly. It was definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I gained friends and experiences that will always be a part of me. Every bit was worthwhile - Trinity University View Entire Review
I found that I can do this traveling abroad thing all by myself! It was so amazing to find that independence again! I also loved that I found the confidence to just go out and do things that I had never done and not once did I ever doubt myself. This trip was absolutely worthwhile and I think about going back everyday. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent, more careful with budgets, how to get used to a new environment faster, how to travel more efficiently, gained more recipes, met people from all over the world and made many international friends. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
My experience was fantastic. I am genuinely devastated that I cannot repeat my time abroad. I am hopeful that I will be able to one day do my masters degree or live in Glasgow for much, much longer than 6 months! - St. Mary's College of Maryland View Entire Review

Past Review
It was extremely worthwile! I learned that I am more independent than I ever thought before. The thought of traveling alone isn't as scary now as it was before. I'm so glad I studied abroad for the semester and it makes me want to travel more when I'm older. - Providence College View Entire Review


Established in 1451, University of Glasgow is the fourth-oldest university in the English-speaking world, and one of Scotland’s four ancient universities. Contemporary University of Glasgow hosts 29,000 undergraduate and graduate students from 140 countries, and is located in a green campus setting in the West End of Glasgow, a trendy and vibrant area of the city.

World-class academics characterize this institution, which is a member of the prestigious Russell Group. Among many notable alumni are the father of economics, Adam Smith; former First Minister of Scotland, Donald Dewar; and mathematical physicist and engineer Lord Kelvin.

With a strong focus on research, and particular strengths in STEM subjects and humanities, Glasgow is also home to the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, one of the world’s leading university museums. The Business School at the University of Glasgow is accredited by AACSB.

Special academic opportunities include law courses which are designed specifically for North American students majoring in pre-law; a course entitled “Exploring Scottish Culture,” which contextualizes the study abroad experience in Scotland; the opportunity to take introductory art courses in partnership with Glasgow School of Art; and a comprehensive array of STEM courses for pre-med majors.

Glasgow is considered to be one of the world’s friendliest and most affordable cities, and the West End of Glasgow is filled with cafes, bars, boutiques and cultural attractions, ensuring that you’ll always have something fun to explore. Ninety local parks and gardens make this a walkable and green place. Vintage shopping, street art, and nightlife all contribute to the cosmopolitan vibe. The Student Representatives’ Council (SRC) supports over 300 clubs and societies you can join. From baking to archaeology to engineering, and everything in between, there is something for everyone.

Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses. Here is a sampling: 

  • Firbush Activity Weekend

  • Luss Highland Games & The Hill House
