Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow has dedicated more than 560 years to inspiring great minds, from economist Adam Smith and pioneer of television John Logie Baird, to the writer and producer of Doctor Who and Sherlock, Steven Moffat.

The university has inspired the talents of seven Nobel Laureates, one Prime Minister, Scotland's current First Minister and the country's first female medical graduates.
