Lecture in a converted church

UoG paid a lot of attention to students and made a real effort to ensure we were receiving a quality education.  The tutors and lecturers were always available and willing to engage with class members, and the small class sizes meant that there was always quality discussion.  Two active student societies also meant there were plenty of student events going on at cheap prices in locations close to the student accommodation, which allowed for entertainment all the time without needing to worry about transport. The university is fairly strong in all of its departments but the schools of Law and Medicine in particular are very strong and receive large amounts of funding

While I was in Glasgow, I studied Labour Law, Jurisprudence, Business Law and Advanced International Law.  Studying over there was much more intense than at QUT: there were three to four lectures for each subject a week, and a tutorial once every three weeks.  The study in general required much more reading and discussion of the topics rather than focusing on answering questions after attending lectures.  End of semester exams were worth 75% so the rewards/price of studying/failing to study were much higher than at QUT.  In general I would say the teaching method over there was much more focused on ensuring students completely understood the theory compared to QUT’s method of ensuring students could use the theory in a practical situation.
