Glasgow University is one of the oldest in the country as it was founded way back in 1451. There are three campuses dotted in and around Scotland's largest city: Gilmorehill, Garscube and Dumfries, with the former sat in the West End of the city. It's definitely a fun city with hundreds of clubs and bars, numerous museums and a wide selection of cafes and shops to keep you entertained. The university itself is also highly regarded, so it's no wonder there's a lot of competition for entry.
Educating nearly 20,000 students, and again in the heart of Glasgow, Strathclyde offers numerous opportunities to prospective students. With nearly 15% of the total student population coming from overseas, it offers a hugely diverse community to be a part of. According to the National Student Survey the university scores impressively high (over 90%) in the subjects of Microbiology, Chemistry, Finance and Economics and Management.
Dennistoun is just north of the River Clyde in the east end of the city. Despite Glasgow being highly modernised in the 20th century with many of the Victorian buildings in the city being knocked down and replaced, Dennistoun retained much of its Victorian charm, with many of the old tenements now refurbished and improved. In recent years gentrification from students and young professionals has pushed up house prices in the area but it remains a great option for student accommodation.
