Description

The University of Strathclyde was founded in 1796, making it one of the oldest higher education institutions in Glasgow, Scotland. Initially founded under the name The Andersonian Institute, it holds the distinction of being the first technological university, receiving this distinction in 1964.

The University of Strathclyde is situated on the John Anderson campus, named after the university’s founder. A large self-contained campus close to the city centre, it offers numerous student union and sports related facilities including football and rugby pitches, as well as indoor badminton courts and gym facilities. Academic facilities include a new Technology and Innovation centre opened in July 2015, as well as specialised pharmaceutical facilities.

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.

The first two years of my course had interesting modules. Although, I felt the examinations were more who could remember what the answers were rather than using any real problem solving skills. Moving in to 3rd year, we were given a group project which contributed significantly to your overall grade. In some cases this would allow team members to flourish and others to come out their shell but in the majority of cases one member would complete the full project while the other members obeyed. In terms of the University itself it had all of the relevant facilities required to complete the course. Although, in year 2 there was a fire which led to a large section of the building being closed off. The Union is by far one of the best in the UK - 8 floors with bars, pool rooms, food places and many other activities. This makes it very easy to socialize with other students at student prices. There is also great opportunity for students to have semesters/years abroad with the University having several partnerships throughout the world. Lastly, the location of Strathclyde is perfect for anyone in the greater Glasgow area. The various bus, train and subway routes make it easy to commute.

I am currently doing my internship as part of my MSc programme in Strathclyde Business School. Overall, I think the Uni provided me with highly valuable and analytical knowledge covered in the different modules throughout the year. I do like the group projects students are heavily involved into, making them think how this would apply into real case problems. Since I am here only for a year, I can say that Strathclyde encourages students into independent and dynamic learning. Also, there is very international student spirit and you get to know different cultures. Concerning the teaching quality I think it is very good, however some lecturers should concentrate not so much on dividing each module into 3 or 4 smaller ones, since the teaching material cannot be fully acquired.
