Students at the University of Strathclyde represent around 100 different nationalities, including Nigeria. Each year, the University welcomes more than 90 Nigerian students, who live and study with other people from the UK and across the world.

A warm welcome

When you arrive, the Nigerian Society is a great place to make new friends. Students of all religions are also invited to the multi-faith Chaplaincy Centre.

"I chose to study in Strathclyde because of the rankings for my course. When I checked the rankings for electrical and mechanical engineering, I saw that Strathclyde was in the top ten. I like to aim for good things so I came to Strathclyde for that reason.”
