International Pre-arrival Module

Welcome to the Pre-Arrival Module for international students who will be coming to Strathclyde. You may not have any experience of studying in the UK and want to know how to gain work experience during your studies, understand the process of applying for graduate jobs in the UK or understand what to expect from workplace culture and behaviour.
