A diverse Student Population

main content

Strathclyde is proud of its reputation as a welcoming university with a diverse range of students.

Every year, thousands of students make Strathclyde their first choice. We have over 15,000 undergraduates, 80% of whom live on or close to campus in the heart of Glasgow. Around 4,000 of our students are 'mature' students, starting their studies after gaining experience in the workplace, and almost 16% are overseas students from more than 100 countries around the world. Over 7,000 students are undertaking postgraduate studies at Strathclyde, and each year approximately 45,000 students come to the university to study part-time, either in the evenings and weekends or through distance learning.

In addition our Alumni community is 113,000-strong, with more than a quarter based overseas.
