Faculty of Science High Flyer Programme

Advanced entry for High Flyers

Complete a Masters degree in four years

Well-qualified applicants with appropriate Advanced Highers or A Levels will be offered admission to the Faculty’s prestigious High Flyer Programme. You'll enter at year 2, allowing you to complete an Honours degree in three years or an integrated masters degree in four years.

Success in the High Flyer Programme will give you a head start in your chosen career and identify you as one of our elite students.

If you're doing the relevant Advanced Higher or A Level science subjects you'll receive a dual offer. This will specify the grades you require for direct entry to year 2 as a “High Flyer” and standard entry to year 1.

Our buddy scheme

Applicants for this programme will be invited to be part of our buddy scheme. You'll be given a buddy who is currently in Year 1 of their course. So when you start at Strathclyde you'll know someone in your class. This gives you a chance to ask questions about the course and life as a student at Strathclyde before starting your course.

You'll also get the opportunity to meet other students who will be entering at Year 2 as part of the High Flyer Programme.
