Strathclyde, The Place of Useful Learning

AdvantagesGreat uni, very central in Glasgow, good range of subjects

DisadvantagesA poor library selection

"Strathclyde University in the centre of Glasgow was my first choice for a university. Having decided I wanted to study Geography and American Studies I was willing to sacrifice the latter to take up the chance to go to the university recommended to me by both my geography teachers at school. The very first thing that gave Strathclyde a high rating in my books was the fact that of all the universities I applied to or even just expressed interest ..." Read review

A comprehensive Review

AdvantagesLocation, friendly

DisadvantagesHalls of Residence can be rather old

"The University of Strathclyde is located in the city centre (unlike the University of Glasgow, which is located in the West End of the city) with an additional Jordanhill Campus to the West of the City. Just off the M8, the university is accessible by rail and underground from other parts of Glasgow and across the central belt. The John Anderson (City Centre) Campus is located to the North-East of George Square and centred within it is the Rottenrow ..." Read review

Advantageswicked to those on campus

"...ask yourself whilst studying at Strathclyde university is 'whether you are here to have a great time or to do the work laid down by the course you've choosen?' I 'studied' at Strathclyde within the Arts and Social programme, doing Geography, Economics, Sustainable Development, Sociology, and Politics. All very interesting courses. I was resident in the building called Baird Hall. It is a renovated hotel from teh 1950's it is located a good 20 minute ..." Read review

Best student union

AdvantagesCheap drink

DisadvantagesErm...dunno

"Strathclyde certainly has the best student union i've been in-and i've been in a lot of unions in my time!. Ten floors of music,debates,dancing and booze! If you're looking for a uni with a great social life strathclyde is it. Oh yeah, and the academic side is good too! The business school has one of the best reputations in scotland and certainly deserves its excellent reputation. The staff are helpful, always at hand to help if they can. And the ..." Read review

Good Social Life - and the teaching's not bad either

Advantagescompact city centre campus

Disadvantageslack of accommodation

"...between 1990 and 1995. Strathclyde has been a Uni since the 60s, and has a good reputation for Engineering and Business Studies. The campus is in the city centre, and is compact although extremely hilly - wheelchair users would find getting around almost impossible. The Business School is extremely commercially focussed, and as a result the courses are very practical in nature with lots of project work and presentations. The Arts faculty is less so, ..."

All the staff are friendly and willing to help. There is a very good friendly atmosphere there. Everyone feels equal. The university ..." Read review

Strathclyde uni

AdvantagesCentral location

Disadvantagesthe amount of hills!

"...and Human Resource Management at Strathclyde University. The reason I decided to go to that uni was because it was close to where I live and it had a good record of teaching for the Business School. I found that the teaching at the uni was good although one drawback was that there was a real focus on teamwork and the majority of my assignments were in the form of group presentations and reports. I thought this was a negative because it meant that ..." Read review

Booze, Birds and homework.

AdvantagesIn the city, great people, good reputation.

DisadvantagesNoisy at nights, Too many distractions.

"I studied at Strathclyde University for 5 years and I enjoyed every minute of it. Everything from living in Glasgow to my shoeboxed size bedroom in the halls of residence. Glasgow was well known for being a hard city with hard people but I found it to be friendly and down to earth. The University itself is situated right in the heart of Glasgow and everything is right on your doorstep from bars to churches. I studied at the business school which ..." Read review

Simply the best

AdvantagesGreat social life and good teaching.

DisadvantagesNone I can think of

"I have been at Strathclyde University for 6 years now and it has been a great experience from the start. I have experienced both undergraduate and postgraguate life at this university and discovered that both lives are very similar. I have found the staff here to be both friendly and helpful. In my time as a postgraduate I have visited several other university's in the UK and have never come accross a better atmosphere both on and off campus. If your ..." Read review
