About The University

Glasgow Caledonian University, the University for the Common Good, is a vibrant, values-led, multi-cultural, civic University with a global outlook and strong commitment to delivering social innovation and sustainable development in its education and research. We are ranked fourth in the world and first in the UK for promoting gender equality, in the top 70 globally out of 1,400 institutions for social impact, and first in Scotland for health and wellbeing, and reduced inequalities, for which we are ranked 21st in the world. GCU is the top performing modern university in Scotland, with the highest increase in rankings of any Scottish university according to the Guardian and Times/Sunday Times, and ranked 52nd overall in the UK by both. The Times Good University Guide 2023 also ranked us first in the UK for our Physiotherapy, Radiography, and Food Science programmes.

For environmental sustainability we are the only Scottish university with EcoCampus Platinum accreditation and were ranked second in Scotland for sustainability in the most recent People and Planet league table.

GCU is unsurpassed by any other Scottish modern university for the level of research (72%) considered to be world-leading or internationally excellent, our health research is only surpassed by King’s College London for outstanding impact, and 100% of our communications, culture and media research is rated as having an outstanding or very considerable impact (REF2021).

A recent independent report by BIGGAR Economics concluded that GCU contributed £1.7 billion and 14,360 jobs globally in 2020-21. It highlighted that GCU is a valuable asset to the City of Glasgow, not only bringing economic and employment opportunities, but working to address the deep-rooted economic, social and health inequalities in the City.
