The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university located in the heart of Glasgow – one of the UK’s largest cities – and has a vibrant, international community with almost 23,000 students from over 100 countries.

For more than 200 years Strathclyde has been delivering academic excellence through world-class research and teaching, providing students with flexible, innovative learning in preparation for their chosen career path.

We are tackling global problems
Research is of central importance in everything we do. It informs our teaching and helps us to make a difference to business, industry and society as a whole.

Almost 90% of our research has been rated ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally-excellent’ in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, we are transforming the way academics, business, industry and the public sector work in partnership. We are in the UK top five for industry research income (Times Higher Education World University Ranking 2018).

Each of our four faculties – Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, Science, Strathclyde Business School – work closely with business, industry, government and policy-makers, supporting our enviable track record of making technologies and innovation applicable for the benefit of society.

Our world-class researchers are working with international partners to find solutions to challenges in areas of global importance and to support sustainable development goals – from providing access to reliable electrical power in The Gambia to improving health, water supplies and sanitation in Malawi.

At Strathclyde, we are committed to developing researchers who are both highly skilled and employable. To support you on your research journey, our Researcher Development Programme provides professional and personal development training and opportunities, through a tailored suite of courses, events, workshops and resources.
