GCU Learn

GCU Learn is the University’s online learning platform. All the information that you need about your programme is on GCU Learn: module handbooks, reading lists, lecture notes, seminar tasks and assessment briefs. Lecturers post announcements on GCU Learn and you can expect to get several emails a day with updates on your module activities. It is therefore very important that you know how to use GCU Learn and that you check your GCU email regularly for updates.
