Why Strathclyde? Strath Stories

We've told you all about our award-winning University, our campus and our incredible city; now it's time to hear about Strathlife!

In our Strath Stories series, students and staff from all walks of life tell us why they chose Strathclyde, what they enjoy most about their chosen course and their hopes for the future.

As soon as I came here, I felt right at home. I've loved doing my Masters here.

Department of Biomedical Engineering

I chose to study at Strathclyde, because it's renowned for its research. There's always great resources and the material is taught by lecturers who research in that area.
Physics (MPhys)

The course is very practical, so I've had the chance to do a lot of the actual work I will be eventually doing when I graduate.
BSc Software Engineering

I felt like Strathclyde had quite good links with industry. I hope to be an actuary and I think my course will really stand me in good stead for that.
