Specialist degree preparation for international students

Preparation programmes at the International Study Centre have been specifically designed to support international students. Our courses help to improve your English language and study skills, ready to begin a degree programme at the University of Strathclyde.

The International Study Centre is located on the University of Strathclyde campus. You’ll have access to world-class facilities, and you’ll meet other students from the day you arrive. You will also receive personalised support and progress monitoring to make sure you’re fully prepared to start your degree.

The International Study Centre helped me a lot, especially with accommodation, and also my studies. They helped me to feel comfortable, and to feel at home, and to stop worrying about things.

I had great support from friends and we had personal tutors at the International Study Centre. If you feel homesick or anything is wrong, you can go and talk to them. And friends are always there for you. We are always there for each other.
