University of Glasgow
The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451, in Glasgow, Scotland. It is a renowned centre for teaching and research, being one of the ancient universities of Scotland, the fourth oldest in the English-speaking world and amongst the largest and most prestigious in the United Kingdom. The University has recently risen to 81st place in the Times World University Rankings.
The University's main campus is on Gilmorehill in the West End of Glasgow, although it also has buildings elsewhere in the city and jointly operates the Crichton Campus in Dumfries with other institutions. However, it plans to end its involvement with other institutions due to funding problems.
