What our students say:
“Having completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Glasgow I already knew I loved the campus, and that the course would be really well put together with fantastic teaching staff. The campus is always lively and buzzing with student activity, providing a great atmosphere with lots to do.
A great thing about my MSc programme is its interdisciplinary nature. My fellow classmates come from a variety of degree disciplines and this makes discussion more rounded and interesting. The mixture of ages and experience is also great as everyone has something different to offer.”
Helen Swan (UK) , MSc Global Security
“I'd highly recommend the IMRCEES program at the University of Glasgow. I chose to study at Glasgow University because it sounded like a good program in an interesting city, and it really was. The classes were fascinating (very politics oriented), I was able to study Polish (another reason I chose Glasgow), and the program enabled me to also study in Poland, which is quite unique. Studying at the University of Glasgow was great, too, and very multicultural. The student life was excellent, the people of Glasgow are friendly, and the city is exciting. It's a very intellectually stimulating environment, with many opportunities in and out of the classroom to expand your horizons.”
Sarah Tanksalvala (USA), International Masters in Russian, Central and East European Studies
