The University is made up of three academic schools - School of Health and Life Sciences, Glasgow School for Business and Society, and School of Engineering and Built Environment. Glasgow School for Business and Society has a fine reputation for developing innovative programmes in areas such as Risk Management, E-Business and International Fashion Marketing. Our schools contain state-of-the-art laboratories and a number of renowned centres of excellence.

High-quality teaching

Glasgow Caledonian University has a well established reputation for providing high-quality teaching, learning and research which dates back throughout its founding institutions to 1875. All of our programmes are designed to offer students an effective combination of academic study and practical experience.

Putting employability first

We offer a wide range of programmes, all of which have a strong focus on ensuring that our graduates have the opportunity to enter a successful career in their chosen discipline. This strong careers focus is illustrated by the fact that the vast majority of Caledonian students looking for employment found a job or went on to further study within six months of graduation.
