If you're looking for a job or want to move into postgraduate study, we'll be happy to support you. We have great links with industry and are always working with a wide range of employers. We advertise vacancies and even have employers come in to present to our students here on campus. As a student we'll offer you one-to-one advice including practice interviews and CV checks.

The University of Strathclyde Sports Union is home to over 50 Sports Clubs on campus. With around 3,000 members, we're one of the biggest and most diverse student sport communities in Scotland.


At Strath Union we have around 200 student-led societies, for a huge range of student communities. You can find a society for your course, hobby, or identity, and if you can't find the society that you're interested in we can support you to start a new one.
Joining a society is a great way to have fun and try new things.

Information Technology

The University provides the vast majority of users with access to its networking infrastructure at a bandwidth of 100 Mbits per second (Mb/s). Most buildings are interconnected by links running at least 1Gb/s. The University has invested heavily in its edge network, ensuring that the cabling to staff offices and laboratories is modern and of high quality, and that the network hardware is capable enough to satisfy the demands of the teaching and research community.


Our self-contained campus is based right in the very heart of Glasgow, just 10 minutes from train and bus links, and a 15-minute taxi ride to our international airport. Glasgow has been ranked "World's Friendliest City" (Time Out, 2022) and the 4th best city in the world (Time Out Index, 2022). We're in the city centre, next to the Merchant City, both of which are great locations for sightseeing, shopping and socialising alongside your studies.
