University of Glasgow named THE University of the Year

27 November 2020

The University of Glasgow has been named the Times Higher Education (THE) University of the Year following its 2020 awards ceremony which took place in London this week.

Of the award, the judges said: "“At a time when universities are too often on the back foot in public debates about value and relevance, Glasgow stood out as a shining example of what a university should be: institutions of courage and action, uniquely placed to tackle the biggest issues facing the world”.

Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Glasgow, said: “It is an enormous honour to be named as the Times Higher Education University of the Year for our work around historic slavery and reparative justice. I want to thank the judging panel and THE for their decision."

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
