Glasgow Caledonian University

www.gcu.ac.uk

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) offers a vibrant environment for learning, teaching and research. GCU delivers career-focused programmes, world class research and award winning student support.

In 2010, GCU became the first Scottish University to establish a postgraduate campus in the UK capital. GCU London offers further study in finance, risk management, construction management, tourism, fashion and luxury branding.

GCU’s global outlook

GCU enjoys a global reputation for academic excellence and has partnerships with universities across the world – including China, India, Brazil and the USA. GCU is one of the UK’s most dynamic and diverse universities. Our International Student Support Service gives practical advice and support to our overseas guests and the International Students’ Society organises a wide range of activities for international students.

Building careers with industry

GCU has a reputation for applying its knowledge and skills to benefit the communities it serves.

“GCU is unique not only in its ability to inspire and teach its students, but to do so in a way that prepares them for industry to the benefit of themselves and their future employers.”

Stephen Sharp, Executive Director of Marketing at Marks & Spencer 

GCU has succeeded in building strong links with industry and many of the companies we deal with are world leaders in their field.

These relationships benefit our students in many ways. These companies employ graduates and offer student placements. Working closely with us, they contribute to the design and structure of our programmes.

Key facts & figures

  • Number 1: The rank given to our award-winning student support. GCU facilities such as the Base have helped us win ‘No. 1 for student support’ and overseas student support awards from Times Higher Education.
  • 6 months: The period after graduation in which the vast majority of our graduates find work or further study. With innovative, specialist courses, our lecturers have good industry contacts to help our students find placements and future career opportunities within 6 months of graduation.
  • 2014. The year that GCU’s main location Glasgow is host to the Commonwealth Games. Glasgow is perfect for students. It has a vibrant live music and arts scene, jumping nightlife, accessible sports facilities, spacious city parks and much more. And it is all within easy access of Scotland’s spectacular scenery and world-renowned festivals.
  • Top 10: The placement our research earned us in the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise. Recognised for our work in rehabilitation sciences, GCU was placed top in the UK and our research in construction and the built environment was rated best in Scotland.
  • 22 countries: The number of countries in Europe that GCU students can visit as part of a student exchange opportunity. And exchanges are not just restricted to Europe. We offer placements and exchanges around the world to help our students to sample another country and learn a new language.
