All round great place to go to! Such an amazing campus with all round great staff and lectures that are very helpful and informative.
Uni is in a great location and has lovely facilities. Library is great
Very good location, library is excellent
it's been good so far, very few in-person classes cuz covid tho
The facilities here are amazing, library and gym open everyday. Campus is easy to navigate around and staff are helpful
Good Uni, good courses and good people
in a first year at Glasgow Caledonian University and have loved it. friendly staff and amazing library facility
all the nursing lectures are incredibly informative and easy to understand
Although there are many facilities and societies, I still found I did not get much support in the first term. However, through module evaluations the uni was able to take these complaints and fix these for the next term.
Not enough in person but hopefully will be better next year lecturers are lovely and the staff are all kind and the campus is good. Library is amazing. 100% recommend joining as many society’s as you can!!! Work load is okay
My experience with the school so far has been good. Have not had the chance to try lots of the facilities.
It’s a good uni very nice looking
Has some of the most amazing facilities and the staff are engaging and easy to talk to. I have learned invaluable skills throughout my time here and I am sad to be graduating
i like the uni but i do feel they have very high standards for their marketing that isn’t reflected in the teaching
i love it so much it’s really great
Good uni but not compared to other unis that do so much w their societys
The tutors and the student services/advisors are phenomenal.
I am disappointed that I’m only on campus 1 day a week it meant it was really hard to make friends. If it wasn’t for my accommodation I’d have no life
i love it, having the best time !
Great place and like my time here so far.
Really enjoying life so far at GCU, really good staff who are committed to making your experience great. So much support offered.
A bright and modern campus, which has a generous size library. Most of the staff are engaging towards the subject matter and you can see their passion, however, some staff members do favor helping a few particular individuals. The career department is adequate however, due to covid-19 I didn't practically use any of the services available, how could I?
Great uni, can't wait to get back on campus.
I love Glasgow Cali, staff sometimes take a while to reply to concerns but otherwise staff are kind and facilities are great
The university has amazing library in which you can either chill with friends or study during the breaks
This university is great and has a varied blended teaching approach which can accommodate students from all walks of life!
Campus is very nice as everything is all crammed up together. Student union could definitely be improved as it seems quite outdated. Club and societies are ok, I tried to be part of a specific society but wasn't accepted due to discrimination - same thing happened at Strathclyde University (I used to go there as well)
Best experience for students and especially internationals. Great faculty and quality learning for all educational departments.
It is based in town and quite handy for the international students who like living in a lively area.
The campus is bright and modern, but the management of Covid is not good
Fantastic university! The campus is wonderful and modern. It has great facilities and is beautiful. Very sad that I was not visit the campus more often because of the pandemic. My experience on my Digital Design course has been fantastic but that's specific to my programme. Have heard good things from other courses though.
How can I review facilities I've never visited? Still beats Cardiff!
The university is a great place to learn. I do hope however we can get back into skills labs soon and it is important for my course
Obviously i haven’t been onto campus since first year but in first year there was a wide range of clubs and societies, the library is a great facility and so is the cafe and union.
Aye the place is alright tbh but not worth it if it's all online
All online learning due to Covid.
Great University! Would recommend applying to anyone considering.
Good university, not top notch but very honest and overall keeps its students satisfied.
The University cancelled the program I supposed to attend, 3 weeks before the start date. I have got the student visa in my hand, paid for everything and was ready to move in a week. I am extremely disappointed at GCU.
Amazing university, so kind and caring especially over covid. They have gone out of their way to be accommodating and supportive and understanding.
Overall a good university, with welcoming staff, a modern but small campus (which makes it easy to navigate), a large library, and some good lecturers. Also, passing modules is not hard overall, as long as you show commitment (i.e. going to lectures) and put in minimal effort into your work. However, a good portion of the lecturers were passive, did not make an effort to captivate students and teach interesting content. Some of them had an annoying habit of not teaching you things properly, and then demanding you to present work to a high standard, as if students were actually minimally prepared to do so. Grades are around the same for mostly everyone, except for the 4 or 5 people that the lecturers love. The graduates office, although comprised of nice staff, fails to actually be useful, as I never saw a relevant internship or job opportunity being presented to me. The careers site does not contain any relevant internships or graduate jobs in my field of studies as well.
GOOD UNI, some teachers are good
Small campus, easy to locate buildings. Canteen food overpriced.
A great university in Central Glasgow, exceeds its reputation.
I like this university, its a good place to be.
Tutors at GCU are always available to help with your studies on a 1 to 1 basis
Had a very good experience at GCU!
nice, beautiful campus, in particular, in summer
Great university everyone is so friendly and welcoming really makes you feel at ease
I love it I love it, good quality.
Bad experience, I would definitely not recommend others to live here!!!!
I have to say it’s no choice for me to choose any other one. So it’s Okay 👌
Great location near to city centre
Great university and great social feel
i enjoy university and my studies
OK, it has been a good experience
The food catering servie can be improved
the teachers arw very nice and they help me alot! I love my school
I'm at college but it's forcing me to select a uni
All the facilities are available
The university layout and library are excellent, which makes the teaching environment more enjoyable. However some of the lectures are terrible, I currently had a heated argument with one of the lectures, which I believe to be a personal issue. As I felt it could have gotten physical and has become only worse since October. Nothing has been undertaken to address the issue. Warm and welcoming reception, not quite. Time to leave, probably.
I have nothing particular to say in this review
did not use career and union services much
Although this university can receive a lot of stigma from other groups, it has an excellent healthcare school and nursing school with it being ranked 3rd in Scotland on the university league timetables, 2019.
The university of Glasgow is has been an excellent choice. I have been given the opportunity to meet lecturers and professors experts in my field of studies. Besides, the facilities provided there are excellent, even during the summer as there were coffee shops available and the library was opened every single day. This is an excellent institution with four centuries of history.
Fantastic university, great environment and friendly people
Brilliant facilities. Always someone there to help.
Going into my Third year within Glasgow Caledonian university and throughout my time here it has allowed me to meet new people, join clubs that I love and has amazing facilities for learning. The only downside to Caley is our small student union. All in all I'm definitely happy I chose Glasgow Caley to study.
Very considerate of people from all faiths. Specifically - I am a muslim and there is a place of worship as well as ablution rooms. This allows me to study and practice my religion at university making it easier for me to balance both.
I like the campus, it’s nice with plenty of space and all in one place so your not having to walk for miles from class to class. Overall I will have to say I feel the uni are very last minute with everything, there’s a chaotic and disorganised feel every time I return from summer. Exams times aren’t great. The exam period always starts like less than a week after classes finish meaning if you’re one of the first exams u have no time to study properly which is obviously very stressful and I feel leads to bad results.
Amazing support system in place, feel like all staff genuinely want to help and there is a great atmosphere throughout campus among fellow students. Advanced facilities and amenities on offer
So much to do , everyone’s mentally sound
The staff and the facilities are great, but it can get a little crowded from time to time.
The name explains it all.Uni for the common good. Great university!
Really modern campus, a great library, Good course structure
The facilities are quite good, as a lot of new renovations have taken place. The societies and clubs are as good as students make them, so it's not so much on the university if these are bad. But, there are many to join. The student union is decent, nothing too special but it's what you'd expect from an on campus union. The internet and wifi is pretty bad in some area's, and a lot of their computer and network systems are quite slow and dated. More could be done. I don't even know where the careers service is, nor did I hear from them much. Wasn't well advertised at all.
Honestly, this uni could be so much better. But it's full of far more useless and/or lazy tutors than there are good/decent tutors. There's no star system on this review for rating the lecturers, so I'll be honest about the facilities, they are pretty good. But if you actually want to learn something useful, you're better of doing it all from online courses. As that's effectively what I had to do. Much of the material provided was awful and out-dated. For a technology course, this should not be the case. Some coursework marking felt as though it was just given out randomly to look like legitimate overall marks, as some modules had overly simple coursework that would mean all students are handing in identical coursework, how this produced such varied marks amazes me. Some modules would give a marking scheme when coursework is issued, some would not, making it near impossible to determine what is actually being asked, or what needs to be done.
Great experience and very fulfilling academic modules which helped me in developing my skills and competencies.
My course was taught very well and all the faculty were amazing. GCU however is run like a business with no regard for student life. No proper students union, no sports union, hardly any funding for societies and sports, basic facilities, no music facilities, no debates/ external speakers . It is a glorified college which focuses more on "the common good" that it's own students.
I always felt very supported and the staff were great.
Glasgow Caledonian University is a school I will recommend to both national and international student. Great staff both educational and non educational, great Learning Development Centre team, well equipped library, health and fitness centre, well organised educational and fun events
It was the best 4 years of my life
It's a very good university!!! Its accommodating to international students, and passes out really important messages about life !
Gcu is a great place to learn with very supportive lecturers and a great use of facilities! I love the quiet library and the fact that it remains quiet is a great attribute.
The science department are the least helpful people I’ve ever met in my entire life. They do not care
Great campus with lots of facilities, always notified of career opportunities by module leader. The union isn’t that great as quite expensive.
Tutors are amazing and super helpful. The campus has a really welcoming and friendly vibe!
The University have everything as a normal student needs. And even staff and the environment are very friendly apart from this you will have time to meet with different people from different countries by which you will get awareness of different cultures etc.
I love studying at Glasgow Caledonian University. It’s a brilliant atmosphere with great tutors and support. I am a member of the cheerleading sports society and it was such a good decision because I’ve made so many new friends and I am learning so many new skills.
very good place for computing :)
Very supportive throughout degree
The campus is amazing and it has all the facilities needed for a student. All the clubs and societies are well organized and fun.
I really enjoy attending GCU. The facilities and staff are amazing. I would highly recommend it!
Very modern university and campus and career oriented
Excellent facilities available through out the campus
The engineering department is dreadful. The lecturers are uninteresting and not helpful in the slighest. They fail to actually teach anything about the modules that are in the course before including material in the exam which has never been seen before. There are maybe 4 good lecturers in the engineering department and one of those 4 is semi retired. DO NOT COME HERE
Love it had an amazing 1st year
Great university, with helpful stuff and amazing facilities
Excellent university with great services and support
Love the facilities provided to every student, most importantly the library.
Supportive staff, variety of societies and great facilities
GCU has a great and easy to navigate campus and facilities, very approachable staff and a very good student support system. What makes the time at GCU great is the atmoshpere, the numerous opportunities to meet new friends and the university's constant focus on improvement and drive to become the best it can be.
It’s the best uni. Friendly staff and good timetabling has allowed me to plan work and things around exams and lectures
Cale offers a fantastic university campus in the heart of Glasgow City Centre, with fantastic supportive staff on a number of levels. However, the facilities are somewhat lacking in terms of expensive canteen facilities (the likes of the local Sainsbury’s is far better value for money) and the student Union is pretty non-existent when compared to other Glasgow universities.
Once you get the WiFi sorted it's all breezy from there , always brilliant opportunities to do weird and wonderful things , fab library as well
Great modern campus with great facilities for computing etc. Unions pretty small but still class. Feel it could do with more societies etc
Clubs and societies disappointing
Many clubs and societies available Still need improvement for student associations building
Great time and societies are vast and diverse
Spacious places where you can study and also be with your friends
Lot mix of people very big and overwhelming but soon used to it
Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good
The small campus meant that students are able to move from one classroom or lecture hall to the next easily and relatively quickly for classes, and the entire environment and university staff (including those in the Wellbeing Service & the security services) have all been very welcoming to students.
Brilliant, new University building, all situated on the one campus, but severely lacking a student union.
poorly organised, poor 'student experience' - freshers, societies, union
They couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery at Caley but the facilities are phenomenally good
