Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU)

Glasgow Caledonian University, established in 1993, has become one of the largest universities in Scotland with nearly 17,000 students. The campus is self–contained and situated right in the heart of the city of Glasgow. It also boasts a professional postgraduate university campus in the heart of London. GCU has been designated as Changemaker Campus by Ashoka U, a global network of universities and colleges, and is one of the only 29 In the world and the first in Scotland. Under the European Commission ALFA programme it was the only UK HEI to coordinate a project (KICKSTART: Ways of Teaching Innovation) and has continued to be closely involved in European engagement through a variety of projects under ALFA, TEMPUS, Erasmus Mundus (2 and 3) and S&T II. GCU has been partner on a recently completed ALFA III project, BUILD, aiming at the creation and development of entrepreneurship centres at partner universities in Latin America. And we currently participate on Enrich (S&T II), which includes a knowledge transfer strategy for Eastern African partners.
