Fair and student- friendly. The university has been supporting and giving fresh university students assistance on essays writing, tips for studies, social life and balance on work and life.


The University exceeded my expectations! The classes, although difficult and different from the USA are manageable because I have wonderful teachers. Glasgow uni requires very independent learning outside of the classroom but not once did I ever feel alone in the learning process. All the teachers were very approachable and willing to work with you outside of class. Beyond that, the campus has a lot of useful resources to help you succeed. I have personally taken advantage of LEADS for every single essay I have had to write at glasgow uni and I feel I did better because of their help! Outside of school there is a club or team for every thing imaginable! I joined one of the dance clubs and have made my best friends from just that experience and it felt good to get involved and meet people outside of my glass. The only downside about the uni is that I have had a hard time trying to find a good place to study on campus that is not the library. Every student and their mother is at the library at all hours of day meaning it is always crowded. It is good that so many students want to study but I think the crowdness of the library signifies the lack of other study spaces on campus because everyone must cram there.
