Glasgow - all the ingredients you need for a dynamic student life
Glasgow is one of the UK's most energetic, friendly yet edgy cities, making it the perfect location for any student of the arts.
On the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow is Scotland's largest city. The city centre streets are built on a grid system - so you can never get too lost. And there are so many restaurants, bars and clubs, you’ll never run out of new places to enjoy. It’s the cultural hub of the country; it’s home to most of the national companies in performance arts - most of whom are our professional partners. It’s full of places of worship and home to eclectic communities. 80,000 students live here each year, studying at four universities and the Conservatoire, making it one of the most student-friendly cities in the UK.
“One of the things I loved not only about the Conservatoire but Scotland and, specifically Glasgow, was this human grit that I’ve never found in any other place I’v e ever been - this real sort of existential beauty in very difficult things to look at. I feel Scottish Art and particularly Scottish theatre revel in a stark gorgeous aesthetic that I think really challenged my boundaries about what I considered to be palatable.” Alexandra Silber, Alumni and Broadway Actress
