Stathclyde University offers a wide range of courses in accounting, business, marketing, engineering, pharmacy, languages, social sciences and of course Law.

Glasgow is one of the cultural hubs of Scotland and has a diverse range of social activities on offer. It was named as the European City of Culture in 1990 and this can be seen by the range of museums, theatres, libraries and music venues that Glasgow has. Glasgow is also a very green city encompassing 70 parks and gardens providing a well-rested break from the busy and vibrant city atmosphere. The Botanic Gardens in the West end created in 1817 is a great place to visit in the summer months.
