Semester Exchange - University of Glasgow

Semester Exchange - University of Glasgow

Glasgow University serves all students in these fields by preparing them for professions: the law, medicine, civil service, teaching. Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. Today it is in the top 1% of the world's universities. 

It has fostered the talents of seven Nobel laureates, one Prime Minister and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister. The university welcomed Albert Einstein to give a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity. Scotland’s first female medical graduates completed their degrees here in 1894 and the world’s first ultrasound images of a foetus were published by Glasgow Professor Ian Donald in 1958. All of this means that if you choose to work or study in the University of Glasgrow, you will be walking in the footsteps of some of the world’s most renowned innovators, from scientist Lord Kelvin and economist Adam Smith, to the pioneer of television John Logie Baird.
