Our Integrated degree programmes offer entrance to degree programmes at GCU. They are designed for international students who have the potential to succeed, but do not meet the entry requirements for Glasgow Caledonian University.
Why choose an Integrated Programme?
- A university-validated programme
- High contact hours and small class sizes throughout your first year of study
- A single programme of study, meaning you can apply for one visa for the full duration of your programme
What can I study?
There are more than 30 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees available through our Integrated Programme.
During the Integrated degree programme you will study a range of academic modules for your chosen degree, as well as develop your English language and study skills. After the first year of academic preparation, you will progress to study a further three or four years to complete your undergraduate degree at GCU, depending upon your degree programme, academic qualifications and English language level at the start of the programme.
The Integrated Master's programmes combine preparation for postgraduate study with a specialist postgraduate degree at Glasgow Caledonian University. The first year of the programme consists of subject-specific content supported with academic study skills, postgraduate research skills and integrated English language skills.
If you need to improve your English language level by up to 1.0 of an IELTS band, you can apply for the Integrated Master's degree with Pre-sessional English option, which incorporates a term of English into the programme.
