University of Strathclyde: Rankings, Fees, Courses, Admission 2021,  Eligibility & Scholarships

The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university. Established in 1796 as a place of ‘useful learning,’ the University remains committed to research, teaching, useful learning and employability. As well as an award-winning Careers service there is close engagement with industry through industrial placements for students and research facilities such as our £89m Technology & Innovation Centre, opened by The Queen in 2015. This facility is transforming the way academics, industry and government work in partnership in energy, health, sustainable cities and manufacturing.

We are in the UK’s top 20 universities for research intensity according to the Times Higher Education’s analysis of REF2014. Strathclyde has a triple accredited Business school (AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS) and one of the largest and best equipped Engineering faculties in Scotland. In autumn 2018 Strathclyde will open a new £31m sports facility and is starting work on a £60m Learning and Teaching hub.

Strathclyde was named Times Higher Education Business School of the Year 2016, Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013 and UK University of the Year 2012.
The University has a vibrant international community with students from over 100 countries and is investing £650m in its campus over a decade. Strathclyde’s campus is in the centre of Glasgow, one of the UK’s largest and most dynamic cities and a good base for exploring Scotland, the UK and Europe. Glasgow has excellent transport links and, with two international airports, is a one-hour flight from London and a short trip from the beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

At Strathclyde, we are constantly striving to create a first-class working environment for our staff and students – and our efforts haven’t gone unnoticed.

This year, we were named Scottish University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.

On our win, Alastair McCall, editor of the Sunday Times Good University Guide, said: “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.”

We have also been awarded University of the Year in the Times Higher Education Awards, the first university to win this award twice. As well as the University of the Year, we won the Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative of the Year award for our Breaking Barriers initiative, a pioneering programme which gives young people with learning disabilities access to education and work experience opportunities.

We are very proud of our previous awards from the Times Higher Education Awards which include Business School of the Year 2016Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2013, and Research Project of the Year 2011

Our facilities

We’re currently in the process of transforming our campus and investing £1 billion by 2023.

Included in the transformation is the creation of a new Learning and Teaching Building which is due to be completed in 2020. It will expand our teaching facilities and bring student services and Strath Union under one roof, at the centre of our campus.

The Wolfson Building will also be transformed, to provide world-class facilities for the Department of Biomedical Engineering, including new research and teaching laboratories, more office and social spaces.

One of the biggest improvements to our campus, is the addition of Strathclyde Sport, which includes a swimming pool, sauna and steam room, fitness suite, dance studio, badminton and squash court, and two sports halls.

The £31m state-of-th-art gym was officially opened in March 2019.
