Graduate IT Jobs in Glasgow

 

Location

Glasgow’s status as the largest city in Scotland is owed to its proud industrial heritage. Once a major centre for the shipbuilding, textiles and chemical industries, Glasgow’s current economy remains notably diverse.

Glasgow has an urban population of over 1.7 million people (45,000 of which are studying at one of the city’s four universities) and the city remains a huge draw for students as a bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis with a proud cultural reputation, notably claiming the title of European ‘Capital of Culture’ in 1990.

Outstanding Universities

Like other major cities in the UK, the choices for students looking to study in Glasgow is diverse.

The University of Glasgow is a member of the Russell group and is ranked at 30th overall in the UK and 13th for Computer Science. Competition for places subsequently remains fierce, with students expected to attain straight A’s at Scottish Highers level or AAB at A-Level in order to gain entry.

The University of Strathclyde’s academic reputation continues to grow, with the institution being ranked within the UK’s top 40 overall and 17th for Computer Science. Competition for places is tough and students will be expected to have gained ABB grades at A-Level or AABBB in their Highers.

Other universities in the city that offer Computer Science related courses include Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of the West of Scotland.

Job Opportunities

Glasgow’s economy is the largest in Scotland and second only to London in the UK in terms of its yearly growth-rate (4.4%). Job opportunities for Computer Science graduates in Glasgow are ample, with the city comprising the western section of Scotland’s Silicon Fen tech-cluster.

The city has also been recognised as a successful ‘smart-city’, with Glasgow’s example of attracting tech start-ups through a focus on establishing pioneering 'Internet of Things' projects being mirrored elsewhere in the UK.

The city’s universities also continue to contribute to the growth in Glasgow’s technology sector, with the newly opened Strathclyde University Technology centre expected to draw more technological research companies to the area.
