Mechanical engineering, Year 2

(5)·By Brooke W·Engineering· Oct 2018
I have found the course good. I have Met a lot of new people and enjoy still learning even after leaving high school. The best part about university life is probably being able to do what you want whenever you want. At first it's hard moving away from home then you get used to the freedom. Overall I have enjoyed my university experience.

Teachers are extremely passionate about course and full of in depth knowledge. Nights out in glasgow are great loads of choices and amazing deals for students especially during the week. Ther are many clubs and society, that will suit everyone. I stay at home so do not live with uni friends.

Business Studies, Year 2

(5)·By Carly M·Business· Apr 2019
Good fun, I enjoyed most when in first year as I was new to the uni! But every year is a good laugh! The union at Strathclyde is great! So easy to make friends with other students either doing the same course or a different course as you.

I don’t stay in Strathclydes accommodation as I already lived in Glasgow before starting the course. However I have been to a few parties at halls and the rooms/flats are a good size and very handy for the campus buildings. Slightly jealous as I have to get up earlier in mornings than those that stay on campus. Staying in halls would be good for making friends as well.

Library is a good size! Lots of computers and areas for silent private study but also good areas for group work. At the business school there is a lot of group projects so the library is great for all meeting up to discuss a project. The new gym is also amazing! So big and always space on machines

I study business analysis and tech. I love the class as it’s a rather small class so it’s easier to get help if needed from lecturers. Also good as the full year are rather close and can help each other out. I also study business law and those classes are really interesting. The business school is great as it encourages you to attend networking/internship talks and meetings

Glasgow has great night life! Always a party going on! Glasgow is known to be a friendly city, if you need help just ask! Glasgow has so many good pubs/bars. Ashton lane in west end is my favourite. Especially in summer so nice to sit outside with a cocktail with the girls

It’s hard work and you need to be able to motivate yourself to keep going. Uni is not like school anymore. You have to get on and do things yourself. And at Strathclyde attendance Is not always compulsory so sometimes it is tempting to skip a lecture or class.but just always be careful and catch up and make the most of the good classes and learning that you will do. The uni is great, highly recommend! The business school is well known so it’s very popular

Business and management studies, Year 2

University is great, meeting people and going out adds to the already interesting experience that you learn on your course. Leaning a specific field in depth and understanding concepts you wouldn't otherwise hear allow you to really see how a business runs and the precautions they take in times of risk and uncertainty.

Physics and Astronomy, Year 2

(5)·By Emma·Physics· Oct 2018
Lots of societys to join that allows you to make new friends from different faculties. Physics is a great department full of helpful staff who support and encourage their students. On campus there are lots of amenities, lots of coffee pit stops. Also the university has an app which contains a timetable, map, computer avaliablity and many other features such as notification of when exam results are up.

It was amazing! The university really went out it's way to make freshers week exciting Never thought I'd miss the livingston tower but Covid has me dreaming about it Group study is my favourite part of the library, all the books and facilities are easily accessible too The course is really interesting, especially because I want to work in this field I love being in the city around all the other students. “Main character” vibes

Psychology / Criminology, Year 3

(5)·By Sharan K·Psychology· Jul 2021
Freshers week was full of fun events that helped me make friends and get to know the uni better, It made me feel really comfortable and at home! The accommodation is great, and there's a wide range offered for different budgets. It is at very close access to the uni, with halls being right beside the main uni buildings. Facilities are excellent! There is a brand new gym with a great pool. The library also offers several floors for different study and has many books and computers at access. My course is very interesting and I really enjoy it. I've made great friends along the way too. The lecturers are great at explaining and teaching the course material and there is additional help offered to those struggling. City life in Glasgow City is amazing. There's a wide range of bars, restaurants, shops at easy access. Nothing more a student could want.
