MSc Business Analysis & Consulting

There were case studies with actual clients and we had to present a solution to the problem they brought forward to us. Providing real-life experience like that really gives you an edge when it comes to applying for jobs.

We get emails almost every single day from the University saying there is a part-time vacancy in the different community pharmacies... We are just getting that hands-on experience.

BSc Software Engineering

After uni, I've got a job lined up already. So in September, I'll be going off to work in an engineering company doing a lot of the stuff I was doing on the course.


BSc Computer Science

In my final year, I developed a mobile app for youth employment and it was that dissertation that I used to start my own business. It was really due to Strathclyde that I started the business.
