The city of Glasgow has been named the world’s friendliest city! Glasgow is perfect for hiking, shopping, and exploring all of the culture Scotland has to offer. There are plenty of opportunities to listen to live music, visit the theaters, and visit the longest indoor snow slope in the UK.



Students at Strathclyde take classes amounting to 60 Strathclyde credits (about 3 classes per semester) which is equivalent to 15 US credits. Normally exchange students take classes at levels 1 to 3. The third digit of the class code denotes the level of the class. Level 2 and 3 classes will require some previous study in the subject. Level 4 classes are usually not open to exchange students unless there is a significant amount of background knowledge in the subject. Students must complete a Course Substitution Form in order for courses to transfer back as LSP, major, or minor credits at Truman.

Strathclyde Course Availability




We provide secure accommodation for eligible students and have a dedicated Accommodation Services team to help you all year round. You’ll find them in the Campus Village so if there’s anything you need just pop in and ask.


Single-occupancy study rooms are on-campus and majority of the halls are arranged as suites and have en-suite bathing facilities shared among members of the flat. Meals can be prepared in the self-catering kitchen facilities within the suites, or be purchased at the many on campus eateries. The University’s accommodation has been developed as a Campus Village, right in the heart of the city, on the eastern side of the John Anderson Campus between the Cathedral and George Square. At present over 1,440 students live on campus and approximately 500 live in University accommodation just outside the campus; some of this accommodation is located in the Merchant City. Both locations enable students to enjoy city life with ready access to University departments and facilities.

You will make the final arrangements for your accommodation at Strathclyde directly with their international office prior to departure. You may be required to pay for some or all of your accommodation costs before you arrive in Glasgow.
