Glasgow is one of the largest cities in the UK. Although Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, Glasgow is still its most populated city. There are a variety of historical universities located here including the university I currently attend, The University of Strathclyde. The city is in the centre of Scotland and has a river running through it.

Glaswegian culture is renowned for its friendliness and warmth. As long as you make yourself approachable it’s possible to strike up a conversation with near enough anyone in the city and come away feeling uplifted. The size of the city makes it very easy and cheap to get around, with a simple one line subway system, known as the clockwork orange, you can get from the center to the beautiful west end in less than 10 minutes and for half the price of your morning coffee. The famous tenement flats flank beautiful leafy streets and make up the bulk of accommodation options within the city limits at super low costs when compared to other UK cities. If you like a culture immersed in rich history, with some of the most beautiful countryside in the world on your doorstep, come to Glasgow!

Know Glasgow is a place of great history and diverse culture. The weather is mostly cold and constantly changing as the day goes on, so it would be best to have a wardrobe suited to the particular climate of the city. There are many sights to see ranging from art galleries, to historical buildings and to local gems that only someone living there would discover.
