Glasgow Study Abroad

Jump to last reply

Hello! I'm an American college student planning on studying abroad in the spring. One of the locations that I'm considering (and leaning most towards right now!) is the university of glasgow in scotland. (my other current choices are dublin and copenhagen)

Just wondering what type of a city it is to live in, as I would be there for several months? I've done a little bit of research and have found some kind of mixed reviews of glasgow. Some people love it and say that Glaswegians are incredibly friendly and welcoming and the city is an exciting, happening place. Others seem to have a less favorable view of Glasgow as a dirty, industrial city with several not well off/ dangerous or rough areas.

Anyone with some knowledge of the area; would you recommend studying abroad for a semester in Glasgow? I would love a city that is not way too touristy where I can really immerse myself, but that is safe and will be a positive experience. Any sort of advice would be GREATLY appreciated as I have to decide and submit my application soon! Thanks!
