I had offers from other universities but chose Glasgow because I wanted an internationally recognised qualification which would position me favourably in a competitive international job market. Graduating in June, I was offered my first job in Brisbane, Australia in July. The excellent preparation I had at Glasgow has allowed me to shine in my field.” – Eileen Baillie, Education (Secondary) PGDE graduate from the UK
