Scottish University of the Year 2020
The Times & The Sunday Times

We're delighted to be recognised as Scottish University of the Year 2020 by The Sunday Times Good University Guide.

Here's what they say about us:

Riding high in The Times and The Sunday Times university league table, Strathclyde has the best student satisfaction ratings in Glasgow and among the best in Scotland.

"It is a university on the up, which has seen applications rise by 60% in recent years from students who are among the best-qualified to enter any UK university. It is the best university in the UK for subjects allied to medicine and social policy and only five universities top a larger number of the Good University Guide's specialist subject tables.

“The present £1bn building programme will only improve Strathclyde's student offer further with new learning and teaching premises, joining the recently-opened sports centre in enhancing the student experience. Famously founded as a "place of useful learning", Strathclyde continues to position itself at the cutting edge.

“It is embracing graduate and degree apprenticeships, encouraging student entrepreneurs, and has a business school that is highly regarded and among the largest in Europe. Strathclyde’s enterprise activity helps students develop, enhance and test transferable skills, giving many a head start in the graduate jobs market. It is a worthy winner of our Scottish University of the Year award.”
