University of Strathclyde is the University of the Year for the second time!
The University of Strathclyde has been awarded the University of the Year title by the Times Higher Education Awards 2019 for the second time – this is the first time a UK university has achieved this coveted title twice, having previously been awarded it in 2012.
Speaking about this superb achievement, Principal of the University of Strathclyde, Professor Sir Jim McDonald, says, “We are delighted to be awarded this honour which reflects the educational, social and economic contribution of our staff and students over the last year. Our vision as a leading international technological university is being realised and we are proud to be delivering technological and socially progressive solutions to global challenges, alongside our partners."
Times Higher Education Awards judges praised Strathclyde’s commitment to its founding vision of being the place of useful learning, stating that it ”set itself the task of reviving Scotland's traditional industrial base with a scale of ambition that has multiplied rapidly over the past decade".
This prestigious award also 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.
Earlier this year the University of Strathclyde was recognised as Scottish University of the Year 2020 by The Sunday Times Good University Guide, and has also recently been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize.
