GCU was formed in 1993 by the merger of The Queen’s College, Glasgow (founded in 1875) and Glasgow Polytechnic (founded in 1971). As of 2015 it is one of Scotland’s largest universities with nearly 20,000 students. It is regularly ranked among the UK’s top 10 modern universities.
Glasgow Caledonian University is a distinctive, inclusive and forward-looking university that is committed to its social mission to promote the common good. It has become an international centre of excellence in higher education, promoting employability and global citizenship in our graduates. GCU wins awards for its support and commitment to the student experience, whilst delivering innovation through world-class research in key areas of strength. The university has a tradition of widening access to higher education for talented individuals regardless of their backgrounds, and leverage their intellectual and social capital for the benefit of the communities served in Scotland and internationally.
