Why join Glasgow Caledonian University?

It’s the right place for the career you want
At GCU, learning is more than just lectures and text books; we will work for you to give the possible training for lifelong career success. Our accredited, career-focused degrees in Engineering, Computing, Environment, Business, Health & Social Care and Life Sciences, are underpinned by world-class research and award-winning facilities. Our teaching and research is built around three principles; enabling people to live healthier lives, build inclusive societies and develop sustainable environments. So when you come to GCU, you also learn how to make a positive change to our world.

It’s not just a University, it’s your community
When you come to GCU, you’ll join students from over 100 countries, and you’ll also begin a lifelong connection to a network of 135,000 alumni across the globe. You’ll join a community of people working together at the University of the Common Good, and build your professional and personal networks (as well as your CV) through a wide range of paid and voluntary work placements and travel and exchange opportunities.

It’s a great place to live
GCU is right in the middle of the friendliest city in the world (Rough Guide 2016) and located in the world’s most beautiful country (Rough Guide 2017). From GCU’s city-centre student accommodation you are well placed to enjoy your new home city and its world-class museums, sports facilities, theatres and vibrant nightlife. It’s a shoppers’ paradise with over 1500 shops, but also has more green space per square mile than any other UK city. And if the bustle of the city centre all gets too much, you can be in beautiful countryside (or looking for the Loch Ness Monster!) quickly and easily.
