Campus is easy to get around- good looking- good location easy commute from bus/trains/subway. Car park across the road. Very inclusive university everyone is welcome. Business school is very helpful- good lectures and always help if needed. All lecture slides put online so if you miss class you can catch up easily

I love all the clubs and societies that are very engaging and consist of multicultural groups. The resources we have at uni are also great and modern. The learning is structured in a great way that works for everyone as long as you make the effort to be present.

Glasgow Caledonian is an excellent university which allows optimum performance from their students due to the structure of their timetabling. Classes are well spread out allowing personal study time inbetween. The materials supplied to students also allow them to perform in exams for the specific module.

The campus has recently undergone an extensive reservation but for example the labs in the life science department have not been updated in some time with equipment that's seriously date, however the teaching staff help to make up for these shortcomings

I’m currently a student at Glasgow Caledonian Univeristy, and I would highly recommend it. It’s a located right in the heart of the city, so perfect location for chilling out in the numerous cafes nearby during the day or takin in the vibrant atmosphere at night.

Not a bad uni. Lectures are nice, building is nice and clean, has a modern look and facilities. My overall experience has been positive. Good city centre location and good landscaping.

I am not sure if its just my course in particular but I find it to be very muddled. The lecturers dont seem sure of the course at all and it seems like we are definitely a "Guinea Pig" year to see how this new course goes. Can only hope it will improve as the course continues however for now it is not great.

The campus is lovely. The buildings are modern and most importantly well maintained. I like that the campus is not big. There is enough space for all the students and its campactability makes it comfortable. There is no rush when you have to go somewhere. There are many places where you can sit indoors. Not so much outside though. There are green parts that brighten the atmosphere even more and make it pleasant

My first year at this university studying engineering. So far very interesting and the staff have all been very supportive and helpful. They helped and I easily managed to pass my first year. The facilities are excellent and this course in particular sets students up well to work in industry. The student union does well to listen to the students needs and make our experience better.

Campus is lovely very small with a lot of facilities. Academic arrangements aren't very good. Very unorganised; people are rude; judgemental and a lot of discrimination. Standard is very poor.

Great library and all buildings are easily accessible. The canteen looks straight out of an IKEA catalogue which is also cool.

University and staff are very supportive, course has far too many elements that are pass or fail, but require huge amounts of preparation. Some of the buildings have rubbish AC and the lecturers can't do anything about it. And the campus is huge so a bit more consideration to timetables could be made instead of lectures at the opposite ends.

Overall a good uni. Very modern and good sports facilities. Often a lack of communication between teaching staff, however good course content. Newly renovated student union with reasonably priced food and drinks. The careers service at GCU is fabulous, good connections with employers and always on hand to help with preparation for job seeking/interviews.

Glasgow Caledonian has a great support system for their students, lecturers do go above and beyond to help their students. With the upgraded campus, classrooms are more modern, lecture halls are larger and canteens are much better. It’s handy having the campus altogether, other universities have buildings scattered all over the place whereas we can walk from one end of the campus to the other without even needing to go outside. I have really enjoyed my time at university, my placements were very well organised and supported.

The staff are generally helpful. The lecturers are lovely although a lot read off of slides which is really annoying as I could just sit at home and get the same information from their uploaded PowerPoint. The societies are amazing and the student wellbeing support for mental health is amazing.
