I applied to Glasgow University because of its internationally respected reputation. I knew that a qualification from Glasgow would carry weight wherever I went in the future.
I live locally and know the city and the area around the university. I think it’s a great student city and would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone.
In the MSc Global Security, I liked the number of pathways you could choose depending on your interests. If you have an idea of what you want to do in the future the pathways give you the ability to pick a route that’s more suitable. I really enjoyed the sheer variety of topics covered. Every class was different and interesting. I learned to think about the security issues we all face everyday such as employment and what type of society we live in, as well as conventional security threats.
The master classes offered an interesting insight from scholars, experts and politicians into the workings of the security world. I especially enjoyed a visit from Gordon Brown’s political advisor in which we could question him closely on all manner of subjects.
I feel very lucky to have come into a course in which there are people who are really motivated and supportive. This counts as much for the teaching staff as for my classmates. It’s a refreshing and inspiring environment to work in.

Having completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Glasgow I already knew I loved the campus, and that the course would be really well put together with fantastic teaching staff. The campus is always lively and buzzing with student activity, providing a great atmosphere with lots to do.
A great thing about my MSc programme is its interdisciplinary nature. My fellow classmates come from a variety of degree disciplines and this makes discussion more rounded and interesting. The mixture of ages and experience is also great as everyone has something different to offer.
