THE place to be

Specialising in finding solutions to the biggest challenges facing the

world today.  

The judges in the awards described as a “bold, imaginative and innovative institution” for the quality and impact of our research, as well as our close links with business and industry. The ideas and insight in their research help to shape their teaching, giving it extra depth and making it even more informed and informative. Their links to business and industry are essential to the scholarships, internships and placements we offer our students, which give them valuable, practical experience of a working environment.    

There are also many opportunities for our students to carry out research of their

own and contribute to a rich seam of knowledge which benefits wider society. Specialising in finding solutions to the biggest challenges facing the world today, in areas such as new technology, urgently-needed novel medical treatments, understanding of the global economy and informing public policy. All of this means Strathclyde isn’t just a place to study and enjoy a first-class student experience – they produce graduates who are ready for successful careers, after gaining the expertise and professional grounding they need for their chosen profession. They are continually working to enhance the qualities which earned us The University of the Year title and to make Strathclyde the best place it can be for all students.
