GCU 635x338


The records of the University date back to 1875 and the formation of the Glasgow School of Cookery. In 1878 the West End School of Cookery was established and in 1908 these two institutions merged to form The Glasgow and West of Scotland College of Domestic Science (GWSCDS). In 1975 this College became the Queen's College, Glasgow.

Glasgow College of Technology was established in 1971, becoming Glasgow Polytechnic in 1991. On the 1st of April 1993 the Queen's College and Glasgow Polytechnic merged to create Glasgow Caledonian University.


Today the university is ranked first in Scotland for work experience opportunities. The University is made up of three academic schools - School of Health and Life Sciences, Glasgow School for Business and Society, and School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment. Their main campus in Glasgow is at the centre of the largest city in Scotland and the fourth-largest in the UK, with close links to national and international transport options.
