Study abroadPartner universities

The University of Strathclyde has Student Exchange Agreements with a range of international partners around the world as listed below. These agreements are coordinated by the Exchange Team in the Recruitment and International Office.

The agreements are University-wide which means they cover all subject areas (in most cases), provided you are able to identify a suitable match for your equivalent Strathclyde classes. 

If you have any queries about any of these agreements, please contact Allison Handley in the Exchange Team on a.handley@strath.ac.uk
