Studying at Glasgow Caledonian University

Glasgow Caledonian University is home to more than 17,000 students, 700 of which are international and from over 90 different countries. The university was the winner of the Times University award 2008 for its work in supporting international students.

The university is situated on City Campus in the centre of Glasgow and has many great facilities for students to make use of, including The Base, an information service for students on everything to do with the university and a well stocked library with study areas and comfy seating both of which are housed in the Satire Centre. The building has five floors and also houses a learning café, computers, and several different spaces for interaction. The Satire Centre is the hub of the university and is known to be one of the most innovative environments to encourage learning across the UK.

For those with an appetite for sport, the Arc centre is equipped with two gyms, weights, sports halls, dance studio and a health spa. Students have the opportunity to get involved in many sports clubs and for those with a competitive edge and a high level of competence, bursaries are available to aid in combining study with sport.

The Students' Association is the base for great organised events and entertainment plus being home to the student radio station, magazine, sports clubs and societies and also features a café and spaces to hang out. There is no bar on campus, instead students can make use of all that the affordable city of Glasgow has to offer with it's lively music scene, restaurants, bars, clubs and cinemas plus many other festivals and events that are hosted in the city throughout the year such as the Comedy Festival, International Festival, Military Tattoo and Celtic Connections.

Taking part in schemes like this helps students to obtain a higher level of qualification and build work-based knowledge and skills.

The International Student Support Services team are there to help every step of the way and also provide a welcome event and other activities to enable students to meet each other, have a tour of Glasgow and a go to a traditional Scottish Ceilidh.

Brilliant, new University building, all situated on the one campus, but severely lacking a student union.
