Shreya’s journey from India to Strathclyde

Shreya joined our MSc Architectural Design for the Conservation of Built Heritage programme, and enjoyed support from our Indian Student Society before she even arrived in Glasgow.

I entered Strathclyde through the Engineering Academy programme, meaning that I spent my first year at City of Glasgow College, before entering directly into 2nd year at Strathclyde.

One of the highlights of my studies so far has been getting the opportunity to be part of the 16th UN Climate Change Conference of Youth (COY16) as a delegate and participate in the United Nation’s 26th annual global climate summit, COP26.

MSc Sustainable Engineering: Renewable Energy Systems and the Environment
When you live and study abroad you have the chance to broaden your mind and adopt a more globalised way of thinking. I strongly believe that studying abroad fits perfectly with someone who wants to pursue a more international career.
Ioannis Chalaris
MSc Technical Ship Management
I like how diverse the modules are on my course because it feels like you get to sample a little bit of everything, which helps you find your niche for choosing a career after university.
