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.
According to 2015 independent research, the university has an annual economic impact of over £480 million on Scotland alone. This figure includes the quantifiable lifetime premium of a class of graduates who graduate in one year, which is estimated to be worth £400 million. This brings the university’s total annual economic impact to approximately £880 million in Scotland. At a ceremony in July 2018, Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus was succeeded by Annie Lennox as GCU’s first female chancellor. The university’s principal and vice-chancellor, Stephen Decent, was chosen in 2023.
