Glasgow is a cosmopolitan city and Guidance located in the heart of the city centre surround various pubs, night clubs and relaxation joints. They are too many to count. Ranging from Afroclub to metal and pop music clubs.×

Caledonian Court is 100 times better than Buchannan View but there is also lots of private accommodation available close to the university due to it being in the city centre.×

Although there are a wide range of sports facilities and clubs that run I don't think they reach their potential for getting people involved or create any competition within the University. One thing in particular that put me off was that there is a 30 joining fee in order to be allowed to attend the sports clubs. I couldn't join during semester one because I didn't have the time due to work. In semester two when I had the time to attend the clubs, I went to join and the fee was still 30 even though I had missed half the year. This does not attract new club members in the second semester. I also feel competitions within the University at these clubs would attract more members.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
