Glasgow Caledonian University
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is a distinctive, inclusive and forward-looking university that is committed to its social mission to promote the Common Good. We have become an international centre of excellence in higher education, promoting employability and global citizenship in our graduates. We win awards for our support and commitment to the student experience, whilst delivering innovation through our world-class research in key areas of strength.
We have a tradition of widening access to higher education for talented individuals regardless of their backgrounds, and we leverage our intellectual and social capital for the benefit of the communities we serve in Scotland and internationally.
GCU has been designated a Changemaker Campus by Ashoka U, a global network of universities and colleges, and is one of only 30 in the world and the first in Scotland. Our outstanding work in preparing our students for employment has been highlighted as best practice in a new report from the Confederation of British Industry, Future Fit. We are the first university in Scotland to achieve EcoCampus Platinum certification for its environmental practices.
