Glasgow is the second oldest university in Scotland and the fourth oldest in the UK. Glasgow students walk in the footsteps of scientist Lord Kelvin, economist Adam Smith and pioneer of television John Logie Baird, among many others.

Founded in the fifteenth century, the University operated from Glasgow Cathedral during its fledgling years. Over the next 400 years it expanded in scope and size and was a centre of both the Industrial Revolution and the Scottish Enlightenment. The University relocated to its present home in the West End of the city in 1870.

The University has more than 6,000 staff, including 2,500 researchers, more than 15,000 undergraduate students, 4,900 postgraduate students and around 5,000 adult learners. It has been voted as having the best campus in Scotland and is a founder member of Universitas 21.

All 27 museums are free.

Glasgow, the first UK city to be a Cultural Capital of Europe, is home to Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
