International students Oman


At Strathclyde, we've a long history of welcoming students from Oman. There are currently over 50 Omanis studying with us. Students from Oman study in all four faculties and at both undergraduate and postgraduate level; popular subjects include Supply Chain & Operations Management, Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, Business & Management, Mechanical Engineering and Computer & Information Sciences. 

The Strathclyde MBA and MSc Finance programmes have been taught at the College of Banking & Finance in Muscat for many years. We also have a link with the Ministry of Health and the Oman Assistant Pharmacy Institute that allows OAPI graduates to continue their Pharmacy education at Strathclyde.

The Omani Student Society in Glasgow (OSSG) has been set up for students from Oman studying at any university in Glasgow. The group provides opportunities for its members to meet and socialise, and has previously organised barbeques and boat trips, in addition to promoting Omani history and culture in Scotland.

We also have an alumni group in Oman that was set up in 2013.

For entry to postgraduate programmes we look for a degree from a recognised Higher Education Institution. Our GPA requirements are 3.0 out of 4 or 4.0 out of 5.

If you wish to apply for a research degree you'd normally have to have a Masters degree and some experience of research work.

Our IELTS requirement is 6.5, however some courses may look for more.

If you need to improve your English to meet the language conditions of your degree offer, you can take one of our ELT English language courses here without needing to re-take IELTS or another English language test
