Glasgow is a cold, windy city that rains a lot! While the weather is average by Australian standards, the city makes up for it with a fantastic music and cultural scene. There are always bands to see, venues to go to and bars to enjoy. There are plenty of students floating around with lots of talent, lending the place a really exciting feel. There was always something going on! The people are very friendly, although it might take a while for you to get used to the accent.
While the campus at QUT is new and for the most part has primarily modern architecture, the main campus at UoG looks like something out of Harry Potter: it’s very old and consists of many winding corridors and spiralling stairs. It is the fourth oldest university in the English speaking world! The facilities are top notch, with a number of well-equipped libraries, sporting venues and lecture theatres.
