The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university based in Glasgow, Scotland. The University’s history dates back to 1796 and today we are the third largest University in Scotland and one of the largest providers of postgraduate education in Europe. Strathclyde’s achievements in teaching and research have led to major successes at the prestigious Times Higher Education Awards three years running – including winning the UK University of the Year award in 2012, and UK Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the most recent ceremony in November 2013.
Strathclyde has been ranked top in Scotland for Engineering and Law, and in the UK top ten universities for Business and Physics. We offer a broad range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research courses across four Faculties – Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and the Strathclyde Business School, all of which are united by our commitment to tackling modern global challenges and our founding principle of ”useful learning”. We take pride in our close links with business and industry, and the scholarships, internships and placements we offer to students. What is more, many of our programmes are fully accredited by professional bodies.
The University is currently undergoing a £370m campus redevelopment, including the construction of the new Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC), which will offer unprecedented opportunities for students, academics and industry professionals to work together and share knowledge and expertise. We also have an award-winning careers service with life-long membership for graduates, excellent sports facilities and a thriving Students’ Association, with clubs and societies to cater for every interest.
The University welcomes around 2,000 international students each year from over 90 different countries worldwide, and our campus is located in the city centre of Glasgow. Glasgow is the host city for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and one of Europe’s most stylish cities, boasting world-class arts, shopping and sport, and within easy reach of both London and the beautiful Scottish countryside.
