PhD Study at GCU

Glasgow Caledonian is an exciting and vibrant city centre University with a strong research community of academic staff and research students. There are currently over 500 research students at GCU studying towards a PhD, Professional Doctorate or Master of Research degree - with students from over fifty countries worldwide, this creates a forum for a rich interchange of ideas, expertise and experiences.

Academic Schools

PhD students join one of the three Academic Schools: Glasgow School for Business and Society; School for Engineering and Built Environment; School of Health and Life Sciences. Students work with academic staff as apprentice researchers, and where appropriate, will join a research cluster in one of our Research Centres. Each School has active research communities, providing solid support in each research discipline, while the Institutes give the opportunity for cross-disciplinary and collaborative research.
