Life at G CU
At Glasgow Caledonian University, we are committed
to ensuring you have the best possible experience
during your time here.
Become part of the GCU student
Throughout the year, our student events team
organise fun, interactive events where you can
make lifelong memories and become part of the
GCU student community. Our students have a
wealth of opportunities open to them - from
volunteering and studying abroad, to quizzes, game
nights and grad balls, there is always something to
do or see at GCU.
All the support you need
Personal tutors: As a GCU student, you will be assigned
a personal academic tutor to talk things through one-on-one
and receive advice on your academic progress, university
experience and general wellbeing.
Learning development centre: Need help in areas such as
academic writing, English for academic purposes, ICT skills
or other general study skills? You’ll find a learning
development centre within each school, staffed by a
team of experienced academic development tutors.
The student wellbeing team offers a free, confidential
advice and support service through which you can
access one-to-one counselling/therapy, group
sessions and workshops to make sure your
university experience is the best it can be.
