About  Glasgow Caledonian University

Learning at the INTO Centre

The INTO Centre is right in the centre of campus. Inside, you’ll find a lecture theatre, classrooms and meeting spaces.

Want to talk to someone? Come to the INTO Centre. You’ll find all our support services there. Feeling homesick? Worried about your studies? Something in your accommodation not quite right? Whatever the issue, we’re here for you when you need us.

Moving to a new country is a big step and we’ll help wherever we can. From opening a UK bank account to registering with a doctor. Need help with your visa? No problem – we’ll help you sort it in one of our visa workshops.

Living in student accommodation means you’ll be making friends as soon as you arrive. Everyone in the Centre will be excited to meet you! We’ll organise some fun activities and trips for you so you get some quality time with your new friends. 

And don’t forget you’ll have access to all the clubs and societies at the University. They are a great way to make friends who love the same things as you.

What makes GCU special?

Glasgow Caledonian University is a community. With over 20,000 students it’s not small but it is intimate.

You’ll join students from all over the world – over 100 different countries, in fact. The campus is close-knit, so you’ll find it easy to make friends.

Looking for a place to meet other students and relax? The Student's Association Building is the place to be. On the first floor you'll find the Student Bistro. Here you can share a meal with friends and play a game of pool or table football together.

The campus is just a 10-minute walk to Glasgow city centre. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to food. When you want to stay on campus, there are three cafes for you to refuel with snacks and coffee.

95% of GCU students find employment or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE 2015). That’s because degrees here are focused on preparing you for an amazing career, whatever you choose. Work experience is offered on most courses, giving you an advantage over other graduates. And you’ll get your hands on some specialist equipment, such as:

  • a broadcasting suite
  • a virtual hospital
  • clinical simulation labs
  • eye clinic
