Most helpful review

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?

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.

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 Student union could definitely be improved as it seems quite outdated.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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
