Strathclyde named THE University of the Year

Taking on a vital social mission – and excelling in delivering on that goal – ensured that the University of Strathclyde was the big winner at the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards 2019.

Judges who handed the Glasgow institution the coveted University of the Year title said that it had returned to its founding vision as the “place of useful learning” and “set itself the task of reviving Scotland’s traditional industrial base with a scale of ambition that has multiplied rapidly over the past decade”.

The award honours Strathclyde’s success in creating a series of collaborative research centres that share expertise and equipment with industry and developing Scotland’s first innovation district, as well as its influence on policy – typified by the contribution of pollster Sir John Curtice.

Strathclyde also won the Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative of the Year category for its Breaking Barriers initiative, which gives young people with learning disabilities access to education and work experience opportunities.
