“People make Glasgow” is the motto of the city and it’s totally right. People in Glasgow are extremely friendly and welcoming. It felt like my second home right away. Strathclyde was exactly the same.
Founded in 1796 as 'a place of useful learning', we're a leading technological University with a vibrant multicultural community of around 30,000 students from more than 140 nations.
We believe ideas can change the world and we’re bringing people of all backgrounds together, making an impact on our students our city and our global community. Based in the heart of Glasgow, our campus has pretty much everything you need, and for anything else there is an entire city to choose from!
What makes us different
Our city centre campus is right in the heart of Glasgow (voted the world’s friendliest city by Rough Guide) and offers a dynamic and exciting place to study, work and live. Whether you’re looking to explore culture, take on our vibrant music scene or go on a night out, there is something for everyone.
We've been awarded Scottish University of the Year 2024, and UK University of the Year runner-up, in the Daily Mail University of the Year Awards.
We’re thrilled to have 12 top 10 subjects in the Complete University Guide 2024! Our world-class teaching and research facilities, combined with our passionate and dedicated staff, enable us to deliver exceptional education and support to all our students. At Strathclyde, we believe that education should be accessible to all, and we strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment where everyone can reach their full potential.
