The Place of Useful Learning

Founded in 1796 as 'A Place of Useful Learning', we're a leading technological University with around 30,000 students from more than 140 nations.

Our campus is in the heart of Glasgow, one of the largest cities in the United Kingdom, and we're just a one-hour flight from London.

The best thing about Strathclyde is how world-class their research and facilities are. Your lecturers are all experts in their fields, but are also supportive and accessible if you need extra help or want to learn more.
