Great uni, very central in Glasgow, good range of ...

A 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...

“A comprehensive Review”

published 18/01/2001

Location, friendly

Halls 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...

“Bairdhall Massive, not”

published 10/08/2000

wicked to those on campus

terrible for those in Baird hall

The question you have to 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...

compact city centre campus

lack of accommodation

I was a BA Hons student at Strathcylde 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...

“Simply the best”

published 21/09/2000

Great social life and good teaching.

None 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...

“Everything yoiu could want”

Its fun

none

When your looking for a university to go to Strathclyde is certanly the the one. Even without thinking about that little education thing the set up is great. The union - scotlands largest licenced premises - are always on hand for all needs. Quite often I see my friends from other universities...

“Strathclyde uni”

published 14/10/2006

Central location

the amount of hills!

I've just finish my honours BA in Marketing 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...

“Booze, Birds and homework.”

published 18/07/2000

In the city, great people, good reputation.

Noisy 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...

Location, Engineering Dept, Entrepreneurship Dept,...

Poor quality students union

As a year 2000 graduate from the University of Strathclyde, I have had first-hand experience of its good and not-so-good points. There are three areas that I would decribe as excellent. The first of these is the Engineering department, which benefits from the latest equipment (especially...
