It was granted a royal charter in 1964, making it the first technological university in the United Kingdom. It is Scotland’s third-largest university by enrollment, with students and faculty hailing from more than 100 nations. Strathclyde is the name of the former Kingdom of Strathclyde.

It was the first university to win this distinction twice after being awarded University of the Year by Times Higher Education in 2012 and again in 2019. The organization’s yearly revenue for 2021–2022 was £387.8 million, with research grants and contracts accounting for £108.3 million of that total. The institution spent $520.4 million of that total.
