Glasgow and Scotland
The University of Strathclyde campus is in the centre of Glasgow, one of the UK’s largest and most dynamic cities. There’s never been a more exciting time to study in Glasgow, with the New York Times naming Glasgow as one of its top destinations to visit in 2018. Students can enjoy some of the most exciting arts and cultural events in the world, and Glasgow is identified with innovative architecture and design. A UNESCO City of Music, Glasgow has one of the most famous music scenes in the world, with an average of 120 gigs per week taking place in the city.
Living and studying in Glasgow is a unique experience; with two international airports, Glasgow is only one hour’s flight from London. Our campus is only a 10-minute to main bus and train stations, with domestic and UK-wide links. A great base from which to travel, we are only a short journey from the beautiful landscape of the Trossachs and the Highlands.
International student deadline: 30th June before September start.

What Our Students Say
Feeling welcomed into the department made Strathclyde an easy choice over other programmes where I did not get that same treatment. The idea of being in such a diverse city that is easy to travel to and from also made Strathclyde the choice for me.Rebecca Romero, MSc Subsea and Pipeline Engineering ‘19
