International students Saudi Arabia

Welcome

Strathclyde has a long history of welcoming students from Saudi Arabia; there are currently over 60 Saudi Arabians studying with us. Saudi students study in all four faculties at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Popular subjects include Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics, Supply Chain & Operations Management, Marketing and Computer & Information Sciences.

The Faculty of Science has external joint supervision programme (EJSP) links with King Abdulaziz University, Princess Nora University and King Saud University, which allow female staff and students from these universities to complete Strathclyde PhDs without leaving their home institutions.

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!
