Research Environment at GCU
The last few years have been vibrant for research at Glasgow Caledonian University and we are excited about potential future developments. The 2008 RAE rated our University number one in the UK for research in rehabilitation sciences and in the UK top 10 for allied health professions research and UK top 20 for research on the built environment.
Alongside these outstanding performances we also had world class and internationally rated outputs across a range of fields such as engineering, biomedical and vision sciences, sociology, media and communications, and history and business.
It is our aim to produce academically excellent research which responds to the need for social, scientific and technical innovation across our areas of strength, harnessing disciplinary knowledge and producing interdisciplinary solutions to current questions and problems.
