About the University of Strathclyde and Scholarship
John Anderson, a professor of natural philosophy at the University of Glasgow, left instructions and most of his estate to found a second university in Glasgow with a focus on “Useful Learning”—academic subjects with an emphasis on practical subjects—”for the good of mankind and the improvement of science, a place of useful learning,” which led to the establishment of the University of Strathclyde in 1796. His name was eventually added to the university’s city center campus.
Renaming the establishment of Anderson’s University in 1828 brought some fulfillment to Anderson’s dream of having two institutions in Glasgow. Since there was no legal justification for using the word “university,” the name was altered in 1887. Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College was established as a consequence, evolving into the Royal Technical College in 1912 and the Royal College of Science and Technology in 1956, with a focus on the teaching and research of science and engineering. Undergraduates may be eligible to pursue degrees from the University of Glasgow or the Royal College of Science and Technology (ARCST) Associate in Equivalency.
The number of full-time students at the university increased from about 4,000 in 1964 to over 20,000 in 2003, the year it commemorated the 100th anniversary of the original Royal College building’s foundation stone laying. The institution was placed in the Top 10 for 12 topics, including 1st in forensic science, 2nd in creative writing, 9th in education, 10th in speech and language therapy, and 10th in manufacturing and production engineering, according to the Complete Institution Guide 2024. The Complete University Guide 2022 places the university among the top ten in Britain for the study of politics.
For the 2023–2024 academic year, there is one full home tuition scholarship available for the MSc Satellite Data for Sustainable Development course. New Scottish students enrolled in the program’s January 2024 intake are eligible for this grant.
