Paisley has a rich and radical history. Its textile industry created the world-famous Paisley cloth, the chip-and-pin and automatic cash dispenser were created here, and when punk bands were banned from Glasgow, they played here instead. Today, Paisley is a thriving uni town with prospects beyond your degree – it's establishing the first Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland.
With its independent coffee shops and cafes, local and big-name shops, plus cool bars, clubs and the iconic Bungalow music venue, Paisley is the perfect student town.

And Glasgow is a short train ride away for even more action and student adventure.
