University of Strathclyde

History

  • Established more than 200 years ago 'for the good of mankind', the University of Strathclyde is renowned for excellent teaching, research and strong links with industry, government and business.
  • Our roots can be traced back to 1796, when Professor John Anderson’s legacy established a 'place of useful learning' – the only higher education institution to be created in Scotland during the Enlightenment. This tradition remains at the heart of our ethos today, as a leading international technological university.
  • We are situated in the heart of Glasgow – one of the UK’s largest cities – and we have a vibrant, international community including more than 20,000 students from over 100 nations, with overseas students accounting for over 15% of the total.
