Glasgow Caledonian University Application Form

International students can directly apply for undergraduate programmes to Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), instead of submitting through UCAS.

Applications from prospective students who are applying only to GCU and who have not previously applied through UCAS to another institution in the same academic cycle can be submitted by email. Copies of all relevant documents must be submitted with applications. GCU aims to process and make a decision on all complete applications received through this method within 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays).

A simple check box (see section 7 of form) allows an application to join pre-sessional English classes to be considered by the University alongside applications to academic programmes. The new application forms can be found here:
