University of Glasgow Reviews
Been here 3 times overall. Place is massive and would probably take a day at least to fully explore it more »
There's so much to see and do around Glasgow University. I was a student here from 1991-1995 (wow i'm old!) and i didn't appreciate how much there was to see and do around the campus. Okay we all... more »
It's magical. It happened that I got there right when the students had their graduation ceremony. Their were having Harry Potter like robes with each one having different colours, I guess representing different specializations or programs. Also, the university's inner courtyard looked like it is from Harry Potter
Just step into this University and it is magical. It has such a beautiful feel.
