International campuses

First British university to have campuses in Glasgow, London and New York


Based in the heart of the city of Glasgow, our campus has completed a recent investment of £30 million, providing students and staff access to modern careers and learning resources. With a tradition of widening access to higher education for talented individuals regardless of their backgrounds, the campus harnesses its intellectual and social resources for the benefits of the communities it serves in Scotland and around the world.

Glasgow offers high-quality education in one of the most affordable cities for students, whilst only being a six-hours direct flight from New York.
