Why study education at Strathclyde?

Studying education at the University of Strathclyde, you'll be learning at an award-winning academic institution. A 5-star QS-rated university, we were named Times Higher Education University of the Year 2019 - the only university to win the award twice.

Strathclyde is ranked 4th in the UK for Education (The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020) and 4th for Education (Complete University Guide 2021).

We’re the only university in Scotland to offer a joint honours education degree. Combining education with other subjects provides opportunities for those who wish to work in professions associated with education, but who don't wish to become teachers.
