Enhancing your Strathclyde experience

The Alumni Fund support has helped the Concert Jazz Orchestra to buy vital new instruments and equipment which will help us to grow and develop. The equipment will also be shared with other bands and orchestras and benefit a lot of students."

I had the most incredible experience on exchange, met people from all around the world and the experience allowed me to develop as a person and gave me the confidence to strive for new challenges and ambitions. I am now more passionate about my degree and I am excited about the potential of my future career. I am so grateful for my exchange; it truly did change my life."
