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.
Strathclyde has a long history of welcoming students from Pakistan and we have a strong Pakistani community both at the University and in the wider city of Glasgow.
Previous Pakistani students have gone on to have successful careers both in Pakistan and around the world at businesses including:
- Telenor Pakistan
- Beaconhouse School System
- University of Peshawar
- Lend Lease Construction
- University of Management & Technology
The Higher Secondary Certificate is sufficient to apply for undergraduate programmes at Strathclyde if excellent marks have been achieved (ie over 75% in all subjects). Applicants with marks much less than this will be required to undertake a foundation/access programme.
We encourage students with A levels to apply, and students with strong marks can often enter the second year of a Strathclyde undergraduate programme.
We normally look for a First class degree from a four-year course at a HEC recognised university.
Students without these qualifications should contact the International Study Centre.
For further information on entry requirements, please contact our representative Christopher MacKay (firstname.lastname@example.org).
English language requirements
If English isn't your first language, you'll need to provide proof of English language proficiency from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
Our IELTS requirement is 6.5, however some courses may look for more.
Improving your English
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
Degree preparation courses
The University of Strathclyde International Study Centre offers international students, who do not meet direct requirements for a course, the option of completing an Undergraduate Foundation, International Year One or Pre-Masters programme. Upon successful completion, students will be able to progress to a degree level course at the University of Strathclyde.

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.
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.
There are loads of places to grab a quick sandwich or have a longer, relaxed lunch or dinner around here. Keep an eye on The List for places to eat.
