Glasgow Caledonian University is Scotland ’s fifth largest university in terms of student recruitment – with nearly 17,000 students. We were formed in 1993 when The Queen’s College Glasgow and Glasgow Polytechnic merged to receive university status. Since then the university has established a reputation for providing vocationally focused programmes – currently 95% of the university’s graduates seeking employment find work or further study within six months of graduation.
We have over 90 undergraduate and 40 postgraduate programmes, as well as a large number of students engaged in research for PhDs in topics that put them at the forefront of their disciplines.
Academic provision is divided into seven academic schools:
- Built & Natural Environment
- Engineering & Computing
- Health & Social Care
- Life Sciences
- Law & Social Sciences
- Nursing, Midwifery & Community Health
The university is one of the leading institutions in Scotland for social inclusion, and we are actively improving access and widening participation in higher education through non-traditional routes and sectors.
