International Students

Strathclyde welcomes students from more than 100 countries around the world and almost 10% of those studying with us have come from overseas. We offer a range of special support services to help international students settle into life at our university and enjoy their time in Scotland.

Where to start

The helpful Information and Advice Team are on hand to answer your questions and give you practical support on your course, visa, accommodation, finances or any other issue you may have questions about. There is also an International Student Guide to help answer your questions when you arrive.
