Campus tours


While open days and applicant events provide you with an excellent introduction to university life, university campus tours offer a convenient, popular alternative and are highly recommended. The GCU Glasgow campus is centrally located and extremely accessible, with campus tours running three times a week. If you are travelling from within the UK, take advantage of the campus tour travel bursary and reduce the cost of your journey to Glasgow.

What to expect from campus tours

Tours leave promptly from the campus tour meeting point. This is located on the second floor of the university's William Harley building, the first building you reach on campus.

Travel bursaries

Campus tours are free and we offer travel bursaries to students who are resident in the UK (outwith Scotland) to help cover the cost of your journey to Glasgow. The bursary takes the form of a reimbursement, available when you book your tour in advance and complete a travel bursary form available at the start of the tour.

  • 100 - 250 miles: £50
  • 251 - 400 miles: £75
  • 401 miles and above: £100

Your tour guide will provide you with a travel claim form on arrival. Please read the full terms and conditions of the travel bursary carefully.
