International Study Centre

Paddy's story

"The International Study Centre was really supportive because it helped us to fit in the university life, especially when it comes to preparing for the bulk of the academic work. When I transited to the University I wouldn't find any trouble finishing an assignment."

"I chose to study in Strathclyde because of their reputation for accounting, my course. I also chose to study in Strathclyde because of the location and the reputation of the people in Glasgow as friendly and supportive.

"At the University you have assignments, either individual or group assignments. If you're working in a team that's a skill you're building yourself, and also time management. We do work placements and internships. It prepares you for real world situations, to understand how things work. It helps you to know more skills. We've been introduced to different strategies like book-keeping and analysing data in finance.

"Glasgow has a lot of people, but compared to London you get more support. As a new person going to a new country, you need that support."
