University of Glasgow
Fall/Spring Semester Program
Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, is a bustling, lively and cultural place to live and study. There is always something to see and do with excellent shopping, nightlife, museums, parks and galleries. Glasgow is a friendly and welcoming multi-cultural city which has recently been voted 'friendliest city in the WORLD'.
Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Glasgow is an ideal gateway to further explore our beautiful country and is less than an hour away from many attractions, including Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Edinburgh, Stirling and the Ayrshire Coast.
The second oldest university in Scotland, with roughly 17,000 under graduates and roughly 8,00 graduate students, Glasgow enjoys one of the largest biology departments in the UK, has a large English department with superb offerings in Scottish Literature and Scottish Studies and excels in Medieval History. Courses in Theater, Film and Television, Theology, Physics and Engineering are very popular with students as well as the diverse offerings in law.
Glasgow offers a very popular class, "Exploring Scottish Culture," aimed largely at visiting students to give them an academic appreciation of their study abroad experience in the culture. The University of Glasgow consistently ranks among the UK's top universities and offers a world-class academic program in a city that is trendy, vibrant and energetic.

Please note: Many universities in the UK do not release their semester 1 (fall semester) course offerings until July. Courses offered in the fall may be released sooner, but are typically not listed on the website until closer to the departure date. Students should take this into account when working with their academic advisor and study abroad advisor in regards to having a flexible course schedule.
Students are housed in residence halls and pay University of Glasgow directly for housing fees. Applications for housing are now made online. Once accepted to the program, students will be emailed a reference number and instructions on making the application for accommodation online. Further guidance can be seen on the Residential Services website. To guarantee a place in university accommodation, students should apply as soon as possible after receiving their acceptance.

Students who hold a US passport DO NOT need a visa to study at Queen Mary University for one semester. Students holding a passport from a country other than the US should visit the UK Embassy Visa and Immigration page to determine whether a visa is required.
Campus life outside the classroom is as lively and dynamic as you could want. You'll find many student clubs and associations that you can join, as well as a wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities.
