We are the University of Strathclyde

At Strathclyde, we are constantly striving to create a first-class working environment for our staff and students - and our efforts haven't gone unnoticed.

This year, we were named Scottish University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.

On our win, Alastair McCall, editor of the Sunday Times Good University Guide, said: "Famously founded as a "place of useful learning", Strathclyde continues to position itself at the cutting edge. It is embracing graduate and degree apprenticeships, encouraging student entrepreneurs, and has a business school that is highly regarded and among the largest in Europe.

"Strathclyde's enterprise activity helps students develop, enhance and test transferable skills, giving many a head start in the graduate jobs market. It is a worthy winner of our Scottish University of the Year award."

We have also been awarded University of the Year in the Times Higher Education Awards, the first university to win this award twice. As well as the University of the Year, we won the Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative of the Year award for our Breaking Barriers initiative, a pioneering programme which gives young people with learning disabilities access to education and work experience opportunities.

We are very proud of our previous awards from the Times Higher Education Awards which include Business School of the Year 2016Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013, and Research Project of the Year 2011

Strathclyde is home to Scotland’s largest Faculty of Engineering as well as Scotland’s largest provider of teacher education.
