What our students think

I also really enjoyed how the course challenged me to get out of my comfort zone – I’m naturally quite shy but during the course I learned how to excel at presentations and public speaking, something I would never have thought I’d be able to do comfortably.

The spirit and the professionalism, which all staff members and students share, is very special. All people are motivating and your classmates have high goals and give their best to achieve them. You get inspired here.

Economics (BA)

I really enjoyed my course. You will have the chance to choose from a variety of interesting classes that are relevant for a career in economics. Another great part of the economics degree is that lecturers are passionate about their teaching and very approachable – you can always ask questions during class or office hours.

I really enjoy how much the students' voice plays a part in life at Strathclyde, as well as the various clubs, health and well being 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.
