The University of Strathclyde: A place of useful learning

The University has an excellent reputation not only in teaching and research but also for its strong links with industry and the commercial sector and entrpreneurial outlook.
Every year thousands of students make Strathclyde their first choice thanks to our world-class reputation, but also because Strathclyde is a friendly and forward-thinking university based in the heart of Glasgow, one of Europe’s finest cities.
The University has four faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences, Engineering, Science, and the Strathclyde Business School. We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in all disciplines and we are recognised as one of the largest providers of postgraduate education in the UK. Research is of central importance in everything that we do at Strathclyde. It informs our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and allows us to translate findings into impact which makes a difference to business, industry and society as a whole.
