Glasgow Caledonian University was established in 1993 when The Queen's College, Glasgow and Glasgow Polytechnic merged. It is now one of Scotland's largest universities with over 20,000 students.
Studying at GCU
The University is made up of three academic schools - the Glasgow School for Business and Society, the School of Health and Life Sciences and the School of Engineering and Built Environment. Our schools contain state-of-the-art laboratories, facilities and equipment, as well as a number of renowned centres of excellence.
We offer a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that embrace full-time and distance learning study options. As a postgraduate student, you can choose to build on your first degree from the university's range of Masters Programmes, or enhance your future prospects with a "direction change" postgraduate degree. We have an excellent reputation for Applied Research, and we offer rewarding MPhil and PhD opportunities - or perhaps a Research Studentship is your fresh horizon. There are many "learning in later life" opportunities too, both for those who want to update their knowledge and those choosing to take a degree course for the first time.
International students must apply to GCU using their online application form on their website. Entry requirements may vary depending on the course subject chosen and the level of study. You are advised to check the GCU website for more details.
