The University

The University of Strathclyde is Glasgow’s second-oldest university, founded in 1796. It has built a reputation as an excellent choice for further education, winning the prestigious Times Higher Education University of the Year award twice. This elite uni is also ranked as one of the UK’s top 20 universities for research intensity according to analysis by the Times Higher Education.

The institution is founded on the principle of “useful learning”, specialising in practical subjects that benefit people across the world. To support this, £1 billion is being invested into improving the campus to create a first-class working environment. Both undergraduates and postgraduates can access the world-renowned resources available at this highly respected uni. 

And our halls of residence are equally impressive, packed with everything you need for uni life. Our flats are available to everyone, no matter what stage you’re at in your academic career. Novel’s University of Strathclyde accommodation is geared around helping students achieve their full potential while also providing great opportunities to socialise and make new friends. Just like the university, our building has all the resources you need to have a great university experience.

The University of Strathclyde

Built on Technology

The university is at the forefront of 21st-century technology, investing £89 million into the flagship Technology and Innovation Centre, which works to connect academics with all kinds of businesses, both private and public sector. This level of investment and collaboration means the uni is ranked in the top 20 for subjects like Mechanical Engineering, Architecture and Electric Engineering! The result of all this investment is the use of Technology Enhanced Learning to deliver a modern education.
