Corporate Support

We pride ourselves on building strong links with business partners to deliver industry relevant, cutting edge programmes and to support upcoming talent with financial support through scholarships, as well as offering unique opportunities for corporate social responsibility (CSR) through our pioneering widening access and community engagement initiatives.

We work with local companies and international businesses to create meaningful partnerships that are beneficial to all parties. Investment in our students and their experience while at GCU is key. And you can help.

‌"Our collaboration with Universities ensures world-class learning provision and accreditation to the highest possible industry and academic standards."

Examples of some successful partnerships:

The MA TV course has an excellent reputation and a track record of getting people into the industry."2014_WB_Creative_Talent_Logo
