OVERVIEW

The University of Strathclyde began in 1796 when John Anderson, Professor of Natural Philosophy at Glasgow University, left instructions in his will for 'a place of useful learning' - a university open to everyone. His vision was realized when Anderson's University opened later the same year. At the time of its Royal Charter in 1964, the University had around 4,000 full-time students and one block of buildings fronted by the Royal College. Today, Strathclyde is the third largest university in Scotland.

Location: Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

Glasgow is one of Europe’s liveliest cities with a vibrant and colorful social scene; some of the best shopping in the world; thriving music and performance venues; and some increasingly renowned international festivals.  It was named one of the top ten ‘must-see’ destinations for 2006 (and the only one in Europe) by Frommer’s Travel Guide and remains the cultural center of Scotland. Scottish people are known for their friendly, welcoming character, which makes it a great place to study abroad. Glasgow has something for everyone!

Whether your passion is history, architecture, music, sports or shopping you’ll find plenty to interest you. Glasgow is Scotland's largest city with a population of 600,000. Glasgow means 'dear green place' in Gaelic; accordingly, there are around 80 parks, more than any other city in Europe. It is ranked as the best UK shopping center outside London and has 14 free museums and art galleries. 

Additionally, it is a major center for sports, including football, golf, sailing, hiking and climbing. Churches, mosques and synagogues are all within easy reach of the city center. With a major international airport 20 minutes from the city and excellent transport links with the rest of Scotland and the UK, travel possibilities are endless.

ACADEMICS

Courses are available in various disciplines and you can find course descriptions listed at this link. Students will take 3 or 4 courses equivalent to 12-15 UW-Stout credits. Students at Strathclyde take classes amounting to 60 Strathclyde credits (30 ECTS credits) per semester. This usually equates to 3 classes per semester. Students coming for a full academic year should choose classes totaling 120 Strathclyde credits (60 ECTS credits).

Students take classes at levels 1 to 3. Level 2 and 3 classes will require some previous study in the subject. Level 4 classes are not usually open to exchange students unless there is a significant amount of background knowledge in the subject. The third digit of the class code denotes the level of the class. Applicants will finalize their curriculum upon arrival after speaking with an academic adviser.

Students may browse available classes. Students applying to the faculties of Science or Engineering should select at least two courses per semester from the same department. Students applying to the faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences or Strathclyde Business School may have slightly more flexibility over courses, however, where possible, it is still advisable for applicants to select at least two courses per semester from the same department. This usually improves application processing times and aligns the applicant with a particular department which in turn usually improves their overall student experience during their exchange.
