University of Strathclyde

Strathclyde-995

Established more than 200 years ago 'for the good of mankind', the University of Strathclyde has always had a global outlook. Strathclyde is dedicated to 'useful learning' and is recognised internationally for its close working relationship with global businesses, and its partnerships with industry, government and policy makers. The University's academics are committed to working with partners to tackle the major research challenges of the 21st Century, while developing the highly-skilled graduates needed by industry and the professions.

Challenging conventional wisdom has been part of the University's core business since it was founded in 1796. Today, Strathclyde is committed to working side-by-side with other leading academics and the business community to deliver solutions to global challenges, in areas including health, energy, manufacturing and the development of future cities.

Every year, thousands of students choose Strathclyde because of its reputation for first-class teaching and excellent facilities. Students benefit from education informed by leading-edge research and the needs of today's global employers; the University is continuing this tradition through a £350 million investment in its dynamic, digital campus over 10 years, to offer the ideal student experience not only in teaching and library facilities but also in accommodation, leisure and sport.

Strathclyde's close links with business and industry help to give its graduates a head start in their careers. The University includes careers advice and development training as an integral part of its courses.
