Studying in the UK
We have a long tradition of welcoming students from all over the world, and ours is the largest international student cohort of any Scottish University.
Studying with us will allow you to realise the benefits of living in this world class city while also giving you easy access to all that Scotland has to offer: great hospitality, stunning scenery, and a rich cultural heritage.
On campus you’ll find one third of our 7,000 students are from countries outside the UK, bringing a real international flavour to our community. Along with our Scottish students, you will share your academic and social life with people from over 150 countries, giving you a great opportunity to learn about other cultures and build friendships that stretch across the globe.
