University of Strathclyde

Scotland’s largest city dates back to the 11th Century. However much of the city centre was built during the Victorian era and little is left from the Medieval and Georgian phases of Glasgow’s evolution. The extraordinary variety of buildings in both the city centre and the West End draw their inspiration from throughout Europe and indeed much further afield. Visitors to Glasgow can experience not merely eight centuries of Architecture but a world tour of building styles.

The Strathclyde School sits amid the busy and attractive Strathclyde University campus. The Department of Architecture at Strathclyde University is student-centred, design-focussed and socially-informed with strong links to the city of Glasgow and the wider community. It hosts the largest and most vibrant international exchange programme of any UK school of Architecture.

Its integrated holistic curriculum characterises its Architecture and urban design courses and is informed by the Department’s ethos of ‘thinking and making’.
