Overview

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is a vibrant multi-cultural modern university in the centre of Glasgow. Our welcoming community of 20,000 students from more than 100 countries enjoys a wide range of award-winning support services and state of the art facilities. Positioned as the University for the Common Good, GCU has a distinct and defining mission to deliver social benefit at home and overseas through education, research and social innovation. Our Chancellor is Nobel Peace Prize Winner and global anti-poverty campaigner Professor Muhammad Yunus.

Combined with our platinum-award winning eco-friendly campus (Ecocampus, 2015) and wide range of accreditations and industry links, it is no surprise that we have a graduate employment rate of 96% (HESA, 2016).  As the first Changemaker Campus in Scotland (Ashoka U, 2015), GCU is also a leader in widening access and is ranked 1st for both research power and graduate completion rates in Scotland within modern universities (HESA, 2014).
