About University of Strathclyde:

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 campus’s close proximity to Glasgow city centre also allows for easy access to the various activities available within the city itself, as well as access to extensive transport links. As well as this, the campus has close to 2,000 rooms available for accommodation, primarily for first year undergraduates. 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.
