Our International Student Welcome Programme is a week-long introduction to GCU packed full of social and informative activities. Meet friends, attend free events, learn about Glasgow, register with a GP and open a UK bank account plus much more.

International Welcome Week will run from Thursday 18th January - Wednesday 30th of January 2019. Our Student Welcome Programme brochure contains information on the exciting events and activities we will be running that week, as well as advice and support on the services GCU has to offer. Our January 2019 brochure is coming soon.
