International Summer School 2016


Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has become one of the UK’s most dynamic and forward-thinking universities, committed to our social mission to work for the common good.

Thousands of students from all over the world join us each year to study and experience the warm welcome and vibrant atmosphere for which our Scottish university is renowned.

Our summer school programme enables even more students to enjoy all that GCU has to offer, if only for a short spell, and in any of our three campus locations in Glasgow, London or New York. Whichever campus you choose, we look forward to welcoming you.

Programme Options

International Summer School at GCU is divided into two possible types of programme. Credit-bearing courses are on offer at our main Glasgow campus in Scotland, or non-credit experiences are available at any of our three campuses in Glasgow, London or New York.

Whichever format you participate in, GCU’s International Summer School is designed to give students a fantastic international education but also an unforgettable cultural experience. During class time you will work together with other participants and our dedicated academic staff to complete a challenging academic programme.

Away from the classroom our accompanying social programme gives you the chance to sample the highlights of life in your chosen host location.

Beautiful scenery, impressive landmarks, nightlife and cuisine will all be showcased. At GCU we take pride in our excellent reputation for supporting our students.

During your time as an International Summer School student, you will have a dedicated Summer School Coordinator on hand at all times to assist you through your time with us, and to help you make the most of it!

For individual applicants: Credit-bearing programmes – GCU Glasgow, Scotland

If you are a student looking to follow a challenging course and earn credit which can be recognised by your home institution, then one of our credit-bearing programmes could be for you.

On these courses individual applicants from around the world will meet and work together to complete a challenging course, with expert tuition and guidance from our academic staff. The accompanying social programme will allow participants from all courses to relax together after class, and experience the best of what Glasgow and the surrounding area have to offer. Students will stay together in central, campus-based GCU apartments with en-suite single rooms, as well as communal kitchen and social space.
