I have unconditionals for Glasgow and Strathclyde but I'm torn between the two.

Having been to both of their open days I prefer Strathclyde as a university but the course at Glasgow seemed better.

Does anyone have any personal experience with these courses or unis that could help?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had offers for both but chose Edinburgh. I also had a St Andrews offer yet I still put Strathclyde as my second choice. I think Glasgow(and StAndrews) definitely offer a better degree, but Strathclyde as a university was a lot nicer, right in the city centre, with the uni accom right next to the uni buildings, really nice gym etc. The computing facilities at Glasgow seemed better though, with their own building whereas Strathclydes was shared. Glasgow has a better UK reputation. I think it depends on what you want, in terms of long term Glasgow is probably the better choice in aiding future employability and getting better teaching, though I don't think Strathclyde is miles behind. Personally I just thought I'd be much happier at Strathclyde.
