Glasgow is home to University of Strathclyde and University of Glasgow, two top rated Universities with great campuses, specially Uni of Glasgow. This is a much newer university with a all building, nothing much to visit for tourists.

From the open day I know this is the University for me! It isn't snobby so it's easy for me to fit in. It is a University which stands up for equality socially and educationally. The facilities are good and cheap. Must see!

If you trying to pick a university then please have a look at Glasgow Caledonian as it is one of the most progressive, innovative and modern universities in Glasgow and the Psychology department is the best.
