Just want to know what your opinion is on this subject, which uni is better and why between Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian?

Strathclyde, largely. It's very well respected for subjects such as chemistry, physics, business and engineering.

Depends on subject, kind of, but generally Strathclyde is the more highly regarded university from Caledonian.

University of Glasgow.
Although totally irrelevant to the OP, Glasgow isn't any better than Strathclyde, they are overall similar.

Generally Glasgow is the more highly regarded university than Strathclyde. Might be relevant to them, maybe they're foreign and haven't heard of Glasgow.

I'm going to Strathclyde for chemistry in 3 weeks so that's obviously the best out of the two.

MAYBE haha :P

EDIT: They are highly regarded since Glasgow do Law and Dentistry and are highly respectable in those areas whereas Strathclyde do not, and are more regarded for the engineering.

Agreed. I will go to Strathclyde to study Business in September and just out of interest I looked at the German partner schools and they were all the best ones in Germany whereas Caledonian didn't offer any I didn't even hear of (I have many friends that study Business in Germany).

As when it comes to Glasgow Uni, it is a lot older and built up more reputation. If that is justified is another story, but Strathclyde certainly competes in quite a few subject areas.

Strathclyde does a damn fine job of competing against Glasgow, especially in the scientific and quantitative subjects. I would choose Strathclyde.

It's not a bad uni at all but they're a bit up themselves. Like to think they're up there with likes of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

I've found that a lot of my economics tutors (foreign PhD students, for the most part) at Glasgow appear to pretty slap-dash in their teaching methods, caring little about their undergraduate students. However, I don't know if the quality of teaching is any better at Strathclyde.
