Start in January and choose from a fantastic range of taught courses.

If a January start date suits you better, we offer a range of courses with the same excellence in teaching and research, the same great student support and the same low-cost tuition fees as we offer to those who choose to begin a course in September.

If you're looking to make a positive difference within your chosen industry, or are wanting to move into a second career through which you can make a difference to local and international communities, GCU - the University for the Common Good - will inspire you to progress to the next level.

We've been working hard to ensure your safety in response to COVID-19 and we've made some changes with new health and safety measures in place. The wellbeing of our students is our highest priority and we'll continue to follow all the latest government guidance.
