Studying in Glasgow - what our students say
Our students tell us all the time that they love living and studying in Glasgow. From great live music, sporting events and dining out, to shopping, diverse culture and a vibrant nightlife, there's so much to see and do.
But don't just take our word for it! Hear from some of our current students on their experiences of what makes Glasgow such a great place to live and study.
It's a great city, it really is. It's got everything - for everybody. If you can't find it here then it doesn't exist.
For effective completion of PhD, it's necessary to have a healthy interaction with your supervisor, a good research facility and academic support. I am lucky enough to have all of these at Strathclyde.
