  • What is the Student nightlife like in Glasgow?

    With over 160,000 students in Glasgow, combined with the notorious nightlife scene, there are plenty of pubs, bars, nightclubs, and restaurants to choose from. Whether you are looking for cheap cocktails in Glasgow’s West End, or a more relaxed night on Bath Street, the city has something for every type of student.

    For those that are new to Glasgow, or just want some inspiration, we have listed some of our student’s favourites below:

    Open until midnight every night of the week, Tingle is the perfect option for a few evening drinks, or pre-drinks before heading elsewhere.

    One thing can be certain when you visit the venue – you’ll get some excellent bang for your buck.

    Nice N Sleazy

    Hosting both live music events and club nights, Nice N Sleazy is an old favourite for students in Glasgow. They offer a number of events available 7 days catering to all tastes in music.

    The Ark

    Located just next to Strathclyde University and City of Glasgow College, The Ark is perfect for food and drinks after a long day studying.

    The Ark is the perfect place to hang out with friends, and even better – they offer a reward card for students where you can enjoy 10% off drinks and 20% off food!

    Record Factory

    For live music lovers, Record Factory is arguably the best student venue in the city. Located in the West End and with a licence until 2am, it hosts live events most Friday & Saturday nights with free entry!

    Even if you’re not there for the music, the venue has a large beer garden for those rare hot days, seating booths and a pool area.

  • Where are the best places to shop in Glasgow?


    Glasgow is a shoppers paradise, with something for all students in the city. Whether you shop at the household high street brands, want to find vintage apparel, or are looking for something more exclusive – you’re sure to find it in Glasgow.

    The city boasts the UK’s largest retail area outside of London, which is referred to as the ‘Style Mile’. This is the area around Argyle Street, Merchant City, and Buchanan Street – which is the fashion hub of the city where you will find both high street brands and high-end outlets, such as H&M, Hugo Boss, Victoria Secrets and Lush.

    Argyll Arcade

    Argyll Arcade is a must if you are looking for jewelers, with 32 stores housed under one roof. The architecture is amazing too, with it being one of Britains oldest covered shopping arcades – built in 1827.

    For those students looking to grab a bargain and experience something a little different, The Barras Market is a must. There is a mix of open and covered stalls selling everything from clothing, to electronics and more. In the early 2000s The Barras Market got a reputation for selling counterfeit CD’s and DVD’s, however today it is much more regulated – although the quality of some products sold is still dubious.

  • What are the job opportunities for students in Glasgow?

    Job opportunities for students in Glasgow

    Many students need a part-time job to support themselves through their studies, and you needn’t worry if you’re studying at one of Glasgow’s Universities as there are ample opportunities.

    Glasgow is the shopping capital of Scotland, with a considerable number of high-street brands and small independent boutiques requiring students to bolster their workforce. With an average hourly rate of £9.38, it is an attractive option for those with previous experience and the jobs are usually flexible around studies.


    The city also has a bolstering nightlife scene and hundreds of food outlets, which means there are opportunities here too. Whilst working behind a bar into the early hours of the morning won’t suit most students, there are pubs and bars which require part-time staff at weekends, and occasionally in the week. Furthermore, if you have experience as a waiter/waitress, there are hundreds of restaurants around Glasgow which are often looking for staff.

    We would strongly recommend considering the impact that taking on a part-time job will have on pursuing a degree, and choosing a job which offers the flexibility required.
