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.
