Home to renowned art galleries, world-class museums, inspiring street art, leafy green spaces, historic landmarks, world- renowned architecture and a legendary music scene, Glasgow is considered Scotland’s commercial and cultural epicenter. The city’s particular location between Highland and Lowland Scotland and its distance from Edinburgh, the country’s capital, make Glasgow a prosperous market center. Not only is Glasgow the largest city in Scotland – it’s also the largest economic region of the country, and accounts for a third of Scotland’s business base, research, power, and employment opportunities.
When you study abroad in Glasgow, you’ll quickly discover why this city is considered one of the friendliest in the world. Glaswegians are known for their warmth and welcoming hospitality, making this city a lovely place to become better acquainted with Scottish tradition and charm. In addition to befriending locals, you’ll spend your time appreciating Glasgow’s industrial prowess, 19th-century Victorian architecture, dynamic arts scene, and how the city became designated a UNESCO City of Music site. With its tourist-friendly culture and cosmopolitan vibe, your time learning and living in Glasgow will be nothing short of epic!
CIEE wants all our students to feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to succeed while studying abroad. Local CIEE staff have provided details about conditions and cultural attitudes that students with specific identities might encounter in Glasgow.
