The Union promotes, represents and supports students during their time at Strathclyde.
Strathclyde is a fantastic university to study at and after attending open days whilst applying, I realised this. The staff and students were very welcoming and ultimately it was the people here and the location that helped me to decide Strathclyde was for me.
Chemistry with Drug Discovery (MChem)
Strathclyde as a university is a lovely campus with lots of new investment into buildings such as the new sports centre and the planned new union.
During my course, I have been able to experience and learn lots of new skills. These include thinking like a mathematician and learn how to code using several different languages are software packages. I have since gone on to teach others how to code because I love it!
Immunology & Microbiology
I decided to study at Strathclyde because I really liked the student life on campus. They also had a really interesting course and the ability to decide which degree course you want to specify in as you go along.
Mathematics & Physics
Staff in the maths and physics departments are supportive and organised in teaching classes and provide plenty of resources for studying. I have also had the opportunity to be part of the Strath Science Scouts, an outreach programme which promotes the study of science. I have had fun visiting schools to run activities and give talks.
Spanish & English
I love Glasgow and being from here I wanted to stay in the city. The university has a very good reputation in all departments, especially with regards to my chosen course of study and is ideally located right in the city centre.
I also liked how many placement opportunities Strathclyde was offering as it helped me to develop my confidence and learn new skills throughout my placements, helping me to become a better teacher.
The best thing about Strathclyde is how world class their research and facilities are. Your lecturers are all experts in their fields, but are also supportive and accessible if you need extra help or want to learn more. The university is very innovative and there are so many clubs and societies too.
Product Design Engineering
The facilities are second to none, staff are truly there to support your development and the classes are engaging and hands on. There is a real sense of close community and students in different years offer support and guidance to one another.
[Favourite thing about Strathclyde] Except from all the friends I have made here, I very much like that there are so many club and societies, something for everyone. I have tried a few different ones over the years; such as the International Culinary Society, Cheerleading, International Society and Nordic Society, and Women in Engineering.
One of the good things about coming to Strathclyde is that when you go on your work experience it is already so familiar. Even in the first week of working in practice there are no surprises because you already learnt the design stages. The course sets you up for the work experience.
Economics & Finance
I have been studying at Strathclyde since September 2014. I enjoyed the teaching and loved being a part of the community. I feel like I really bonded with Strathclyde and I just couldn't leave.
I really enjoy how much the students' voice plays a part in life at Strathclyde, as well as the various clubs, health and wellbeing projects, and the business network. There are so many opportunities for students here and it just feels very inspiring. You can really make the experience your own.
