Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and third most populous in the United Kingdom. Glasgow is situated on the River Clyde in the country's West Central Lowlands. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as "Glaswegians" or "Weegies". It is the fourth most visited city in the UK. Glasgow grew from a small rural settlement on the River Clyde to become the largest seaport in Britain. From the eighteenth century onwards, the city also grew as one of Great Britain's main hubs of transatlantic trade with North America and the West Indies. Glasgow is well known in the sporting world for the football rivalry referred to as the Old Firm, between Celtic and Rangers. Glasgow is also known for the Glasgow patter, a distinct dialect that is noted for being difficult to understand by those from outside the city.

Glasgow Caledonian University

Glasgow Caledonian University (informally GCU or Caledonian) is a public university in Glasgow. It was formed in 1993 by the merger of The Queen's College, Glasgow (founded in 1875) and Glasgow Polytechnic (founded in 1971). In June 2017, the university's New York campus, which opened in 2013, was granted permission to award degrees in the state, the first foreign higher education institution to achieve this status. GCU's main campus is in Glasgow city-centre. A second campus in London is home to the British School of Fashion. GCU offers academic programmes in all of the Scottish Funding Council funding groups but medicine, dentistry and teacher education. According to the Research Excellence Framework, GCU is the top modern university in Scotland by research power.
