My advice to students thinking of coming to Strathclyde: embrace the diversity of students and spend time getting to know everyone.
Forensic Science (MSc)
So far, the best thing about life at the University of Strathclyde is the facilities and techniques that I have been exposed to. I also particularly love the teacher-student relationship as the instructors are always eager to listen and guide.
Digital Health Systems (MSc)
Thinking about my future career and deciding to move from psychology into digital health, Strathclyde offered the most suitable course for me, compared to other universities.
