In a ground-breaking move, GCU was awarded a charter by New York State Education Department (NYSED) to become a degree-granting body in New York. GCU became the first foreign higher-education institution to achieve the status.

In Glasgow, more than 500 girls from across the city learned about careers in science, technology, engineering and maths. They were on campus to hear from women who work in the field about their journeys, before taking part in hands-on workshops as GCU continued its drive to encourage young women into careers in STEM.

And GCU signed a new agreement with Santander Universities, signifying £1m of support for students and staff. Since 2010, Santander Universities has supported more than 700 beneficiaries at GCU, providing life-changing opportunities to access education, travel, and business development opportunities as well as enhancing employability through a matched funding internship scheme.
