Celebrating successful studies at GCU Lorna, Carlos and Debbie
Support with your visa
While you study here, you and your family can get support
from our Visa Immigration Support and Advice (VISA) team.
Throughout the year, this professional service arranges drop-in
sessions and events on campus. You can find them on
Facebook at GCU Visa Team.
International scholarships and discounts
We aim to be an institution that’s accessible to all students
and there are a wide range of generous scholarships available.
There are also funds available for support with tuition costs,
living expenses and travel.
There is a generous scholarship package of £2 million every
year to ensure that our courses are accessible. We provide
various funded scholarships, bursaries towards study costs,
tuition fee reductions and discounts, and loyalty discounts to
help keep the cost of studying within reach.
We have some country-specific and some course-specific
scholarships available. Others are open to all applicants
regardless of domicile or course.
You’ll find details on our website, along with advice and tips on
how to apply successfully gcu.ac.uk/scholarships.
We’re here to help if you need to find somewhere to stay.

Making new friends in your student community
You’ll quickly belong to a vibrant social network with a choice
of student societies. There are groups for international students
and faith groups where you’ll get the opportunity to meet,
study and work with fellow students from around the world.
You’ll have the opportunity to take part in events that are
organised for international and home students alike throughout
the year so you can socialise, explore and experience the
country and culture.
For a personal insight into Scotland, our global buddies
programme oers you the opportunity to meet a student
volunteer from GCU who shares your interests. They’ll quickly
help you settle into life in the UK.
