For newcomers to Glasgow the initial escape to Scotland’s largest city might seem daunting, but right away you’ll find it is very easy to navigate. A grid system ensures that it is always easy to find your way to your destination in the centre and the subway system works on a simple loop, which is easy to get around on. For many students most destinations for work and pleasure can be easily reached either by foot or bike so you won’t have to spend too much of your student loan on getting around.

There is a certain allure to Glasgow life, which ultimately sees many students stay well beyond their University stay. Wandering around the streets you’ll find some stunning historical buildings, beautifully designed, and the free-to-enter Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art provide stunning examples of art from all eras. For shopping head over to Buchanan Street or one of the many shopping centres in the city. If you are into films you can find the usual blockbuster cinema complexes but also older art cinemas, such as The Glasgow Film Theatre. As a UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow provides ample opportunity for both grassroots music listening and touring bands of a high stature. If you are a bit of a foodie, Glasgow offers diverse cuisine, and is also one of the best places for vegan food in the whole of the UK.

Glasgow is also home to a selection of beautiful outdoor parks and attractions, such as the Botanic Gardens, Pollok Country Park and Kelvingrove Park. As far as being close to other parts of the country, Glasgow is a central transportation hub for travel down South to the North of England and beyond, but also East to Edinburgh as well as north to the national parks.
