About Glasgow Caledonian University
Glasgow Caledonian University, sometimes known as Caledonian or GCU, is a public university in Glasgow, Scotland. Its name is derived from the Scottish Gaelic Oilthigh Chailleannach Ghlaschu (IPA: [lhj xaanx lasxu]). The Queen’s College, Glasgow, founded in 1875, and Glasgow Polytechnic, founded in 1991, came together to become it in 1993. The university’s 2013-formed partner institution in New York was the first institution of higher learning founded by a foreign university to be granted authority to confer degrees in the state in June 2017. The Queen’s College, Glasgow, established in 1875, and the Glasgow College of Technology, established in 1971, are the institutions from which the university descended.
The Queen’s College, which specialized in domestic science education, was given the royal honor of being named after Queen Elizabeth as part of its centennial celebrations in 1975. Queen Elizabeth has served as the college’s patron since 1944. The first of these was a BA in Optics, which was followed by degrees in Social Sciences (1973) and Nursing (1977) at Glasgow Polytechnic, one of the largest central institutions in Scotland. All of these programs were externally validated.
Glasgow Caledonian University was created on April 1st, 1993, with the union of the two organizations. Caledonia, the beautiful Latin term for today’s Scotland, served as the inspiration for the name of the new institution. The main campus of the institution is situated where the Caledonian Railway’s Buchanan Street Station once stood.
The Times Higher Education’s 200 under 50 Rankings for 2017 place Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) among the top 150 young universities worldwide. In terms of research capacity, GCU is the best contemporary university in Scotland (REF 2014 rankings).

Six months after graduation, 97% of GCU graduates are working or pursuing additional education, according to HESA.
After moving up from 99th to joint-67th place in the Times Higher Education 2018 UK Student Experience poll, GCU was ranked as the second-most improved university in the UK for student experience.
Additionally, it participates in the Talloires Network, the Florence Network, the European University Association, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, Universities UK, Universities Scotland, the Erasmus+ Program, and the Santander Universities Network.
The Research Excellence Framework ranks GCU as Scotland’s top contemporary university in terms of research output. GCU is among the top 10 universities in the UK for social policy research because of its impact on a global scale.
Three institutions at the university do cross-disciplinary research: The Institute for Sustainable Engineering and Technology Research, which researches a variety of disciplines aimed at minimizing impact on the environment, The Institute for Applied Health Research, which researches a variety of health-related topics, The Institute for Applied Health Research, The Institute for Sustainable Engineering and Technology Research, and The Institute for Society and Social Justice Research, which researches the topics of citizenship and participation, crime and justice, and gender and economy.
