Eric Brownlie, Assistant Principal, Quality and Performance at Glasgow Clyde College said: “We are delighted to be one of the highest rated colleges in Scotland for student satisfaction. There is so much more to an individual’s college experience than just attending classes, and we take great pride in the wide variety of initiatives we have in place to make students feel a strong sense of belonging.”

“The satisfaction and success of our students throughout their learning journey is one of our main priorities, and demonstrates that Glasgow Clyde College is an excellent place to study in Scotland.

The high number of students progressing to positive destinations emphasises our strong articulation links with several of the UK’s leading higher education institutions, which allows students to progress directly into second or third year of many undergraduate courses after studying with us.

“The feedback reinforces the view that Glasgow Clyde College is passionate about supporting learners and inspires them to achieve their potential and change their lives. We look forward to continuing our work and maintaining such high results”
