We're a leading, international technological university located in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland's biggest city. We believe in useful learning which guides our research, our learning and teaching and the way we work with businesses and organisations.

We have a long history of welcoming students from Austria both on exchange and for full undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

At the moment we have around 20 Austrian students at Strathclyde studying across all four faculties but we'd love to see more of you here.

We welcome applications from well qualified students.

Erasmus partner universities include TU Graz, JKU Linz, Vienna Business School (WU).

Getting here

You can fly from Salzburg direct to Glasgow International Airport (GLA) with Thomson Airlines. Glasgow city centre and our University campus are only 20 minutes away from the airport by bus or taxi.

Strathclyde International Society

Run by students, for students, the International Society is the first stop for all international students arriving at Strathclyde.

It's the perfect place to meet new people and learn about many different countries and cultures. You can learn more about Glasgow and Scotland too.

There are weekly international pub, movie and games nights which are regularly attended by more than 100 people from countries across the world.

The International Society loves to get out of the city for a bit of sightseeing too. Recent trips have included:

  • Edinburgh Zoo
  • Isle of Arran
  • Stonehaven
  • Isle of Skye
  • Ben Nevis
  • Alnwick Castle (Harry Potter trip)

If you're joining us here at Strathclyde, you can add the Strathclyde International Society as a friend on Facebook to keep up to date with what they're doing and where they meet. You can also email the team for any other information.

We're looking forward to seeing you at Strathclyde!

While you're here

Glasgow has so much to see and do while you're here.

Shopping & entertainment

Our music scene, bars and restaurants are renowned and we've one of the best shopping experiences in the UK.

There are museums, numerous sporting venues and more than 90 parks, with the oldest - Glasgow Green - a 10-minute walk from our campus.

Glasgow is also a great base for exploring Scotland's beautiful lochs and mountains or for flying to some of Europe's most attractive destinations.

Student union

The student union here at Strathclyde is a great place to grab a bite to eat and catch up with friends between classes.

Like us, it's based in the middle of the city centre and is an array of events, clubs and societies that you can join.

Eating out

There are loads of places to grab a quick sandwich or have a longer, relaxed lunch or dinner around here.

If you're looking for a full Scottish breakfast, The Wee Guys Cafe is the place to be. Have a healthy lunch in Martha's where you're guaranteed fast, natural food to keep you going through those study hours. There are also so many great restaurants to suit all tastes: from Jamie's Italian and Prezzo, to Topolabamba and Cafe Andaluz to Wagamama and Ichiban, you'll never be stuck for somewhere to eat out.

Keep an eye on The List for some more places to eat.


Loans are available for postgraduate EU students. Take a look at the Student Awards Agency Scotland website for further information.
