The University of Strathclyde is inviting applications for its Faculty of Science Postgraduate Elite Scholarships for Africans in the UK for the 2019/2020 academic session.

The University of Strathclyde was established by Royal Charter in 1964, with a history dating back to 1796 and the founding of Anderson’s Institute. The Charter sets out the power and functions of the University as well as identifying the key officers and committees within the University’s structure.

The University’s campus is based right in the very heart of Glasgow. National Geographic named Glasgow as one of its ‘Best of the World’ destinations, while Rough Guide readers have voted Glasgow the world’s friendliest city! They’re in the city center, next to the Merchant City, both of which are great locations for sightseeing, shopping and socializing alongside your studies.
