Overview

The university offers a range of subjects, but has a focus on technological and scientific studies. Research is also an important part of Strathclyde’s offerings, with key focuses on health, manufacturing and energy, among others. Also on offer are a wide variety of partnerships with businesses as well as other higher education institutions, both inside and outside of the UK.
Being that it is such a long-running and well-established institution, the University of Strathclyde has a proud line of alumni, including Team GB swimmer Robbie Renwick, inventor John Logie Baird, explorer David Livingstone and comedian Ed Byrne.

Scholarship & funding

Most scholarships have eligibility requirements ranging from level of study, course or previous academic achievements to residence or nationality. Before spending a long time on an application, check that you meet the basic eligibility requirements outlined in the scholarship information.
Some scholarships offer a full funding package that covers both tuition fees and living expenses. Other awards offer partial funding, for example a contribution to living costs or tuition fees only. In this case you may need to look for other funding to make up any shortfall. If you have a family, check whether a scholarship offering living costs includes an allowance for a partner and/or children
