Glasgow Caledonian University is a unique and progressive university, committed to its social mission to promote the common good. It is an international hub of excellency in higher education, it promotes employability and it shapes graduates to become ‘global citizens.’

It has received awards for the support and dedication it shows towards students. It has a long tradition of opening the door to higher education for talented individuals regardless of their background and it contributes to the intellectual development of society, both in Scotland and worldwide.

The modern campus is located in the heart of the vibrant city of Glasgow and it offers an excellent learning environment. There you will find the Saltire Centre, the awarded library which offers social spaces but also specifically-designed quiet study spaces. In addition, there is another campus in London which hosts the British School of Fashion. In 2013 another campus was established in New York and Glasgow Caledonian is the first university of the United Kingdom that achieves this.

Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
