We are proud to announce that the University of Strathclyde has won the coveted title of University of the Year by the Times Higher Education Awards 2019. This marks the first time that any university has won this UK-wide award twice, since it was also awarded to Strathclyde in 2012.

The University has been particularly praised for its Breaking Barriers initiative, which helps young people with learning disabilities gain university qualification and work experience. This has gained the university the Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative of the Year, and was shortlisted in two other categories: Outstanding Library Team and Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development.

Earlier this year, Strathclyde was also named Scottish University of the Year in the The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020. Additionally, it has been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for excellence in energy innovation, the highest national honour awarded in the industry, which recognises institutions that show “quality and innovation” and deliver “real benefit to the wider world and public through education and training.”
