"Helpful staff, great teaching, efficient information delivery methods, fantastic atmosphere, amazing overall student experience." Paul-Silviu Manolache, Romania (2011/2012)
"The University of Glasgow provides a really productive learning environment - small seminar groups, helpful and approachable staff, handy Moodle system and the best library I have ever used. Together with vibrant and colourful Glasgow it sure makes your year here both useful and memorable." Alexey Strelkov, Russian Federation (2011/2012)
“I wanted to study in a well respected university in the UK. Since Glasgow Uni is one of the top ranked in UK, I decided to go for Glasgow, although I had been accepted in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. I believe that the prompt response I received from Glasgow's admissions office, and how swiftly the whole process went were the key elements I took into consideration when choosing Glasgow University. Another reason was that I wanted to study in a big city but student oriented. I believe Glasgow meets this criteria.
I had always an interest for studying International Commercial Law since my undergraduate studies. In particular, Carriage of Goods by Sea and International Sales and Finance were my main subjects of interest. I knew at that time and I have confirmed now that Glasgow Uni is a great university to study shipping and carriage of goods by sea in general because of the city's tradition of being a shipping and commercial spot for the UK.” Adolfo Toca Bonilla, Dominican Republic (2010/2011)
