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.

It’s right in the heart of Glasgow, always plenty to do within the city as well as being a short distance from the Trossachs! It has a very welcoming atmosphere from the first day, there are a lot of clubs and societies to choose from.

There is always something going on in Glasgow, whether it’s gigs, pub crawls or even late nights in the library; there’s plenty to do. I didn’t know anyone on the business course at first and found the class size to be a little daunting, but Strathclyde offers many opportunities to meet people and share these experiences with.

Studying in Glasgow - what our students say

Our students tell us all the time that they love living and studying in Glasgow. From great live music, sporting events and dining out, to shopping, diverse culture and a vibrant nightlife, there's so much to see and do.

But don't just take our word for it! Hear from some of our current students on their experiences of what makes Glasgow such a great place to live and study.

It's a great city, it really is. It's got everything - for everybody. If you can't find it here then it doesn't exist.

Glasgow is Scotland's biggest & most cosmopolitan city

Our campus is based right in the very heart of Glasgow. We're in the city centre, next to the Merchant City, both of which are great locations for sightseeing, shopping and socialising alongside your studies.
