  • The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451. The Hunterian Museum, the oldest public museum in Scotland are in the interior and art gallery located next to the library of the University of Glasgow in the interior of the University, there are, some really beautiful cloisters. In this University economist Adam Smith and Albert Einstein gave class. Visit is really interesting, we could not see the cloisters, but only to see her out already worth in addition the neighborhood where it is located is one of the most beautiful in Glasgow. 100% interesting.

  • Another fantastic day in Glasgow, the university of Glasgow is just beautiful , the architecture is stunning. Its like howarts so so cool a must see 
  • Often overshadowed by Edinburgh University , the University of Glasgow knocks it into a cocked hat. The Hunterian, the campus quads. Amazing. A great place to visit 
  • Loved my time here but I wish there was an entire anthropology department instead of just professors teaching in the sociology department. Great student life though and very supportive faculty
  • This university is really beautiful. It's 40 minutes walk from the city center but it worths because you can also see the hunterian museum on the same place. And only 10 minutes walk you have the fantastic kelvingrove museum that is fantastic and is also free.
