About The Program

The University of Glasgow’s long tradition of anatomical practice and modern facilities for anatomy dissection and research makes it the ideal location for pre-medical majors. Get a jump in pre-med/pre-health with fundamental training on human anatomy, hands-on anatomical experience, and life science research. Weekend travel, day trips to the Highlands, and Scottish cultural activities round out the program. Explore the character of the West End while you pop into vintage shops. Take advantage of sunny days on the grassy expanses of Kelvingrove Park.

Where you'll study

Attend the alma mater to some of the world’s most renowned innovators: physicist and engineer Lord Kelvin, economist Adam Smith, and pioneer of television John Logie Baird. Among the UK’s earliest universities, parts of the University of Glasgow feel like a set out of a Harry Potter movie. On your way to classes, you’ll pass by elegant spires, gothic-arched windows, epic colonnades, and halls where Albert Einstein once lectured. In other areas, you’ll find the modern labs, sleek steel and glass structures, and Ivy-League-grade facilities one would expect at a leading school for international research. The main campus is located in the posh West End of Glasgow about two miles from the city center. In addition to the university’s high world rankings in the life sciences and expansive biology department, you can find just about any classes for your UC major in Glasgow.
