Overview

The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university. Established in 1796 as a place of ‘useful learning,' the University remains committed to research, teaching, useful learning and employability. As well as an award-winning Careers service there is close engagement with industry through industrial placements for students and research facilities such as our £89m Technology & Innovation Centre, opened by The Queen in 2015. This facility is transforming the way academics, industry and government work in partnership in energy, health, sustainable cities and manufacturing.

We are in the UK’s top 20 universities for research intensity according to the Times Higher Education’s analysis of REF2014. Strathclyde has a triple accredited Business school (AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS) and one of the largest and best equipped Engineering faculties in Scotland. In autumn 2018 Strathclyde will open a new £31m sports facility and is starting work on a £60m Learning and Teaching hub.

Strathclyde was named Times Higher Education Business School of the Year 2016, Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013 and UK University of the Year 2012.
The University has a vibrant international community with students from over 100 countries and is investing £650m in its campus over a decade. Strathclyde’s campus is in the centre of Glasgow, one of the UK’s largest and most dynamic cities and a good base for exploring Scotland, the UK and Europe. Glasgow has excellent transport links and, with two international airports, is a one-hour flight from London and a short trip from the beauty of the Scottish Highlands.
