University of Strathclyde, Scotland


“The people are incredibly friendly. Whether picking up some coffee, or checking out at counters, being greeted by warm smiles makes it a lot easier to call this place home for a few years.”

– Toh Boon Kheng, Malaysia


The University of Strathclyde was founded in 1796 and has a rich history of teaching and innovation. Located in the centre of Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, it is home to students from over 100 countries.
Winners of eight Times Higher Education Awards, including University of the Year 2012 and Business School of the Year 2016, Strathclyde has a world-wide reputation for teaching and research excellence.

The University of Strathclyde also has a long history of welcoming students from Malaysia.

It currently has an active community of around 400 Malaysian students and welcomes more than 100 new students from Malaysia each year who come to study a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Strathclyde also works closely with a number of educational institutions in Malaysia.

The Strathclyde MBA in Malaysia

Strathclyde’s triple-accredited MBA ranks in the world’s top ten.

It’s delivered in 10 international centres worldwide including in Kuala Lumpur.

International Medical Centre & Strathclyde

Strathclyde works in collaboration with IMU to run the MPharm degree in Malaysia where students can study part of their course at Strathclyde.

Since the partnership was formed with IMU 20 years ago, the University has developed courses in biomedical sciences, forensic biology and psychology.

Alumni Malaysia

Strathclyde also has a very active alumni group.

The University of Strathclyde Alumni Malaysia (USAM) has been running events since 2007.

Malaysian Students Society

Strathclyde also has a Malaysian Students Society.

It organises social events for the Malaysian community and holds an annual Malaysian Cultural Night featuring Malaysian food and colourful performances. The society also liaises with other Malaysian societies in the UK to participate in events such as the famous Nottingham Malaysian Games. Beyond the extra-curricular side of things, it also relays career events from Malaysian and Singaporean organisations such as TalentCorp and ContactSingapore.

You can get in contact with the society via email at sumsoc11@gmail.com or find them on Facebook or Instagram.

There’s also a Mosque in the city centre, roughly 10-15 minutes walk from the campus.

It’s the perfect place to meet new people and learn about many different countries and cultures. You can learn more about Glasgow and Scotland too.

The International Society loves to get out of the city for a bit of sightseeing too. Recent trips have included:

  • Edinburgh Zoo
  • Isle of Arran

  • “I didn’t expect MABECS to do this much for me. My consultant, Ms. Maha was very, very helpful with my personal statement and a lot of things. When I contacted MABECS, I didn’t know it was free of charge, because I would have paid for it if I needed to!”

  • “MABECS performed above my expectations because I didn’t expect my application complications to go through smoothly.”

  • “MABECS’ work is very tip-top because they do work on time. If they need a document from me, they will be upfront about the deadlines from the start. That makes it easier for me.”
