Student Profile

Glenn McCreadie

After completing an undergraduate degree from the University of Glasgow, Glenn decided to join Strathclyde for postgraduate study.

"Being able to apply statistics to real-life scenarios particularly caught my attention as I really enjoyed applying my knowledge and skills to real-world problems, based on past experiences but in a biological context. The modules also appeared to be well balanced in regards to theoretical and practical elements of the learning process and this was highlighted by my current employer (a leading global Clinical Research Organisation). The course also offered a wide variety of optional courses to choose from which would help to tailor my experience helping to become more specialised and prepare myself for many fields of industry."
