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.

Strathclyde is a great university, both academically and socially. There are many clubs and societies to join, and I found this was one of the easiest ways to make friends. The staff are all really friendly and helpful which is reassuring, especially in first year.

The Scottish Government has recently published changes to the rules about who qualifies to be treated as a “home” student for Student Support and University fees.
The University welcomes the changes for Ukrainian nationals. These changes recognise the challenges facing people fleeing conflict and the role that Higher Education can play in helping people build their lives in Scotland.Information for Ukrainian nationals
