Study opportunities for US students in the UK

There are many reasons to choose to study in the UK, and Glasgow in Scotland is ranked as one of the best places to study in the UK. As well as the stunning Scottish countryside less than an hour’s drive from the city of Glasgow, living in Scotland offers you the best value for your money. The cost of living and tuition fees are more affordable in Glasgow compared to the rest of the UK.

Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is a vibrant multi-cultural modern university, ranked in the top 10 in the UK for social policy research impact.

We are the University for the Common Good and our mission is simple: to make a positive difference to the communities we serve. Our fair fashion and climate justice work is expanding into other areas and we invite US graduates with a passion for their specialism and a desire to make a difference to come study with us here in the UK.

We offer Common Good Scholarships for students from the US looking to study selected undergraduate and master's degrees. International students at GCU not only receive high-quality teaching and sector-leading employability, but also award-winning support and a student life programme that is designed to to help students make new connections.

This all adds up to ensure you experience the best GCU and Glasgow has to offer, making Glasgow Caledonian the top choice of students from more than 100 countries

We are excited to be celebrating international education week at our campus in Glasgow and across our campuses in London and New York.
