Great central campus with all building at a maximum of 5 minutes apart, facilities are also of good quality (could be better) also in the center of Glasgow so major streets like Suchiehall Street and Buchanan Street are 5 minute walks from campus. Teaching Staff range from excellent to poor (like every university really). Student Association is a great hangout spot with Student Bar included (if a little expansive). Also GCU has a state of the art sports facility (the ARC) fit with gym, sports hall and equipment.

Great uni, could have more course socials but still good. The uni buildings are all attached so it's really easy to find the way about campus. The halls are ok, not great but sort of decent and completely depends on your flat mates. The student union is quite small but other bats sponsor us so it's better to go there.

Very inclusive. We have an LGBT+ society and community and have a financial service for those who aren't as wealthy
Health and wellbeing services: 
Don't know about doctors but there is a 'breathing space' and on site therapists you can speak to when stressed

I know we have support but I don't actually know what exactly it is. Our student president has disabilities and uses them.

Overall GCU is a great university. It's very much based around the student and getting us to achieve our very best without pushing ourselves too far.

the campus has been recently renovated and looks beautiful. It also has all buildings on the one campus and joining corridors so you don't need to go outside in the terrible Scottish weather to get to your next class. The library is huge and there are lots of different types of seating. The uni has a casual and relaxed feel to it.

All staff at GCU are so accommodating, especially with direct entry level students. There is so many support staff and advice available for students to access. The great thing is the Students Association building, there’s so much going on! There free open study space, a bar complete with bar food, 24hr computer lab, advice centre and so much more! There’s so many sports clubs and course related societies you can join. What a great university experience.

For students from poorer backgrounds there’s financial support through the hardship fund which people can apply to during times of financial hardship
Health and wellbeing services: 
There’s a well-being centre with officers who provide help and advice to those who need it, they often run open events for anyone roncompe along to.

The campus is lovely and bright the facilities are varied and my adult nursing course is fantastic. The student union has a bar and career services are open most hours. My experiences has been a positive one which is great because I was informed Calidonian was the best university to attend if you want to study adult nursing so really I couldn’t be happier.

Glasgow Caledonian is a great uni for for studying nursing. There is a large number of students studying the subject and the staff are very supportive. The library is a really nice facility and has plenty computers, however longer opening hours would be better.

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

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.
