Introduction

The University of Glasgow Founded in1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. Today we are a broad-based, research-intensive institution with a global reach. We have more than 23,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students and are a major employer in the city of Glasgow with more than 6,000 staff, including 2,000 active researchers. A leading research centre We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading UK research universities, and we’re striving to change the world with our expertise. Our annual earnings for research are £175m, which means that we can make important discoveries, whether that’s finding a way to detect malaria in minutes, or contributing to the biggest particle physics experiment in the world: the Large Hadron Collider. Excellence in teaching Our research-led approach is one of the reasons why a degree from the University of Glasgow is so prized, but our students also benefit from opportunities to study abroad, improve their employability, take part in work placements and explore a wide range of social activities. As a result, we attract scholars from 120 countries around the world. Rated third for international student satisfaction among universities participating in the International Student Barometer Summer 2012,we ensure that our students graduate equipped with the skills they need to compete in a global workplace. The friendships and networks they make at Glasgow can last a lifetime - we are in touch with 118,000 alumni in 162countries. Working with others We know we cannot succeed alone, which is why we work with partners and friends in Glasgow, Scotland and beyond. Whether we’re sharing expertise on climate change and disease prevention in developing countries, or offering investment to kick-start new collaborations with growing companies in Scotland, the benefits of our ever-expanding network of friendships and partnerships are wide-ranging and reciprocal. The University of Glasgow is a founder member of Universitas 21, an international grouping of universities dedicated to setting worldwide standards for higher education. We are also a member of IRUN (International Research Universities Network) – an international network of broad-based research universities.
