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 Sweden both on exchange and for full undergraduate and postgraduate courses. 

At the moment we have almost 70 Swedish 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 and we participate in many staff exchanges for best practice with universities throughout Sweden.

Nordic Society

The Nordic Society is open to all Nordics and Nordic-minded people. Its aim is to connect people across nationalities and cultures, and to help full-time and exchange students make friends while abroad.

The society meets roughly once every two weeks somewhere in the city centre to get together for social activities. The society has arranged events such as pub and sub crawls, dinner parties, and joint activities with other societies (eg Strathclyde International Society and Glasgow Uni Nordic Society).

You can contact the Nordic Society president by email at You can also find the society on Facebook.
