The University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) and the University of Glasgow (UofG), UK, established the Glasgow College, UESTC in January 2013. Our joint degree programmes (Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Communications) are delivered and assessed entirely in English.
English language (EL) provision is an integral part of the programme and is credit-bearing. The EL programme currently delivers teaching to approximately 1, 000 undergraduate students in the first 2 academic years of their degree.
The EL programme has a dual function:
- To develop the English language skills needed by our students to fully engage in their academic programme.
- To develop the skills needed to achieve the required English language level* to progress on the joint programme.

Brief introduction of UESTC:
Renowned as China’s cradle for the national electronic industry, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (formerly Chengdu Institute of Radio Engineering) is situated at Chengdu, the city of over a thousand-year-old cultural history in “the land of abundance”. As one of the seven earliest key universities in national defense, UESTC became one of the nation’s key universities in 1960. Then, in 1997 it was included as one of the first universities into “Project 211”, a project in China for developing 100 first-class universities and a number of key fields of research for the 21st century. In 2001, UESTC was admitted into the nation’s Project 985, receiving special support for developing world-class universities and world-famous research-oriented universities.
