Glasgow is one of the most socially responsive societies in the world today. The people are friendly, having learnt many lessons in the past and using these to continuously shape a better future. It is therefore not only the right choice, but the right time for those who wish to join the Strathclyde community as the place for useful and “fantabulous” learning!

I really enjoy how the course contents are very practical and cover real-life topical issues. I particularly enjoyed Fundamentals of Macroeconomics with Julia Darby and International Development with Marco Alfano.

My favourite part of the University is the library: you have every resource that you could need there, and the hours make it very accessible, whether you need to go there to cram during half of the night before an exam or you want to read a newspaper with a cup of coffee between classes.

It's been a good experience at the University of Strathclyde. They have fantastic lecturers.
