College pathways

College pathways to university

GCU pathways offer you an alternative route to achieving an undergraduate degree from Glasgow Caledonian University. Together with our college partners, we have hand-picked a number of degree pathway courses that offer the best of both university and college experiences.

We know how important it is to find the right degree course for you and that sometimes that requires an alternative route. Not everyone is ready for that first day at university so soon after completing a pretty stressful exam period at school. For others, four years of study after being in full-time employment can be a daunting prospect.

Find your alternative pathway to university success

Enquire today and begin your undergraduate studies in August. Spend the first two years at college, with the additional benefit of full GCU student status, before transitioning to your chosen degree in year three. Unlike typical bridging courses or foundation pathways, the degree pathway course offers you the same opportunity to graduate with a university degree at the same time as your peers.
