The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia, Bulgaria

Bulgaria

Welcome

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 Bulgaria on full-time undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

At the moment we have over 200 Bulgarian students at Strathclyde but we'd love to see more of you here.

We welcome applications from well qualified students.

Getting here

You can fly from Bourgas Airport direct to Glasgow International Airport (GLA) with Thomas Cook or Thomson Airways. Glasgow city centre and the 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!
