January 2020 starts here

Start in January and choose from a fantastic range of postgraduate taught programmes

In addition to the mainstream September start, the following masters programmes also offer a January intake. January start dates can be more suitable while still offering the same excellence in teaching and research, the same great campus-based or remote-access student support and at the same low-cost tuition fee rates as those who began the course in September.

Glasgow Caledonian University is the preferred destination for graduates looking to make a positive difference within their chosen industry or to find a second career through which to make a difference to local and international communities as part of the university for the common good.
