You can achieve a lot in 550 years.
The University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. Founded in 1451, we've spent the last half-millennium earning an international reputation for research innovation, making connections with experts in global business, and inspiring the talents of forward thinkers from eminent scientist Lord Kelvin to the father of economics Adam Smith. Building on such vast experience, it's no surprise that Glasgow is in the top 1% of the world's universities today (Times Higher World Rankings).
Ranked in the top 10 in the UK for research, and a member of the elite Russell Group of 20 major research universities, the University of Glasgow provides an education that inspires respect from employers and satisfaction from our students.
In the 2008 RAE:
Every year we welcome more than 4,500 graduate students from Iceland to India, from Cardiff to Korea and from London to Los Angeles. Finding community within diversity, our students come from more than 120 countries around the globe to build friendships and networks that last a lifetime. These are just a few of the reasons why we have been named Scottish University of the Year (Sunday Times 2007-8) - and why we're sure the next 550 years will be even better.
