Established more than 200 years ago ‘for the good of mankind’, the University of Strathclyde has always had a global outlook. Situated in the heart of Glasgow – one of the UK’s largest cities – the University has a vibrant, international community and is home to more than 18,000 full-time students and staff from 100 countries.
Every year, thousands of students choose the University because of its reputation for first-class teaching and excellent facilities. Strathclyde is continuing this tradition through an investment of £350 million in its dynamic, digital campus over the next 10 years.
The University is dedicated to ‘useful learning’, and its students are at the heart of everything it does. It is recognised internationally for its close working relationship with global businesses, and its partnerships with industry, government and policy makers.
Strathclyde academics are tackling the global research challenges facing society in areas including health, low carbon technologies and the economy, while developing the highly-skilled graduates needed by industry and the professions.
The University’s four faculties, Strathclyde Business School, Humanities & Social Sciences, Engineering and Science, work across disciplines to give Strathclyde a distinctive and enviable track record of taking technologies and making them of benefit for society.
Its high-profile alumni include John Logie Baird, inventor of the world’s first television; James Blyth, the wind energy pioneer; David Livingstone, the medical missionary and explorer; and Henry Faulds, originator of fingerprint identification, Dame Elish Angiolini QC, former Lord Advocate of Scotland; Sir Tom Hunter, entrepreneur and philanthropist; Paralympic cycling gold medallist Aileen McGlynn; Commonwealth swimming gold medallist Robbie Renwick, and Franz Ferdinand singer Alex Kapranos.
