Alumni Benefits & Services
Here at Glasgow Caledonian University, we offer all of our graduates the support and advice they need - when they need it.
As soon as you graduate, you are automatically entitled to our wonderful GCU Alumni benefits, which are there to help you make the transition from university into your chosen area of employment as smoothly as possible.
We are here to support you after graduation, network you with like-minded people and inform you of exciting job opportunities which arise when you are part of GCU Alumni.
In addition to receiving our magazines, invitations to events, and access to a wealth of career support, you also get to take advantage of great campus discounts such as affordable gym membership.
We also give you the opportunity to give back to GCU, and to support our current and future students. By shopping online with Amazon via our site, or signing up for a GCU credit card, you can help to support the Glasgow Caledonian University Foundation, providing scholarships and supporting student clubs and societies.
Did you know that GCU has campuses located all over the world? GCU became the first British University to open a base in New York, as well as offering a variety of postgraduate courses at our hub at GCU London.
It’s an exciting time to be part of the GCU Community, and we hope you take full advantage of the variety of benefits here at GCU Alumni, designed specifically for you.
A discount of 20% off taught and research postgraduate courses is available to anyone who has received their undergraduate or postgraduate taught or research degree qualification from GCU (or one of our founding institutions).
Our bright, modern health and fitness centre plays host to numerous affordable classes and activities, and is home to the many University sports clubs, a hair salon and spa. Discounted rates are available to GCU Alumni.
GCU’s own Careers Service continues to offer its services to our alumni up to 2 years after graduation. The expertise of the University Careers Service is ideally suited to those who are at the beginning of their graduate working life. That might include, for example, devising a job search strategy after time out to travel; honing interview skills for your first promotion; considering post-graduate study for a type of work that needs additional qualifications; re-thinking your career options.
