University of Strathclyde

University of Strathclyde, George Street 50, G1 1QE Glasgow, United Kingdom
3.90 / 5 based on 294 reviews.
Description:
The University of Strathclyde was founded in 1796 as Anderson's Institution. From its foundation the University was different from the other, much older, universities in Britain; it aimed at a wider range of students and a broader variety of subjects, especially those concerned with 'useful learning'.

The University of Strathclyde has two campuses: the John Anderson Campus in the centre of Glasgow, where the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences, Engineering, Science and the Strathclyde Business School are located, and the Jordanhill Campus, with our Faculty of Education, in the west end of the city.

in general, the system makes it too easy and too superficial the british approach of universities as business with the obligation to make a profit causes a general disregard of the academia and the way how the things are handled is determined by the financial issues.
