The University of Strathclyde
in Scotland is a top research-led British University which originated as Anderson's Institution in 1796. Its establishment was based on the vision of John HD Anderson, professor of Natural Philosophy at Glasgow University who left instructions in his will for a
university open to everyone regardless of gender or class, and would focus on "Useful Learning" - essentially meaning that the
institution would specialise in practical, vocational subjects. The university's main campus is located in the heart of the city,
near George Square and it has an education campus in the suburb of
Jordanhill at the site of the previous Jordanhill Teacher Training College.
