The University’s reputation for educational excellence dates back to 1875. Today, the University has three academic schools which are widely respected in their fields and by leading UK and global employers - School of Health and Life Sciences, Glasgow School for Business and Society, and School of Engineering and Built Environment. All their programmes are designed to offer students an effective combination of academic study and practical experience. In addition, students have the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills essential for future career development, such as computing, foreign languages and communication skills.
At Glasgow Caledonian University they have succeeded in building up strong links with industry over the years and many of the companies they deal are the world leaders in a majority of fields. These relationships benefit the university and their students in many ways. Not only do these companies employ the graduates and take student placements, they also work closely with the university on research and consultancy projects and have a strong input into the design and structure of the programmes.
