Incoming students

At GCU we offer a range of interesting courses in our three schools; Glasgow School for Business and Society, the School of Engineering and Built Environment, and the School of Health and Life Science. Please take a look at our undergraduate courses to find out more.

We want to make sure that our exchange and study abroad students have a great time outside of the classroom too. On arrival you will be invited to a welcome induction where you can meet other exchange and international students as well as take part in a range of free events and trips. We also have and an on-campus gym, dedicated visa, well-being, and learning support teams, and Students’ Association. Check out our Student Life pages to see what you could be doing at GCU.

We welcome students from all over the world to come and spend part of their studies with us. If you are a student from another university outside of the UK, there are different ways you can come and study at Glasgow Caledonian University.
