About the Scholarship:

Both the Glasgow School of Cookery and the West End School of Cookery laid the groundwork for what would later become Glasgow Caledonian University when they opened their doors in 1875 and 1878, respectively (GCU). Following their merger in 1908, the two schools were known together as the Glasgow and West of Scotland College of Domestic Science. The previous name of Queen’s College, Glasgow was changed in 1975. First established in 1971 as Glasgow College of Technology, Glasgow Polytechnic came into being in 1991 after its predecessor. The Queen’s College and Glasgow Polytechnic merged to form Glasgow Caledonian University on April 1st, 1993. The university is now known as Glasgow Caledonian University.


Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is one of the largest and most vibrant institutions in Scotland. The university’s cutting-edge campus is home to more than 20,000 students, who represent more than 100 different countries. In addition, it maintains participation in the Florence Network and the Talloires Network

The Glasgow Caledonian University campus is located in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland, and has a variety of attractions in addition to its world-class infrastructure. The university library, which provides access to more than 270,000 books, 350 open-access PCs, and a huge variety of online resources including databases, ebooks, journals, and more, is located in the Saltire Centre, which is a major highlight of the campus and is also the building that houses the library. The GCU Vision Center can be found in the Govan Mbeki Health Building on the main campus. In addition, the GCU Clinic and the ARC Gym are important parts of the campus. The exceptional living and dining facilities ensure that each and every student has an unforgettable experience here. Caledonian Court is a residence hall that has been recently renovated, and it can accommodate more than 600 students. Both the Refectory and the other cafes on campus offer food that is both delicious and good for you. The second site of the institution is in London, and it is here that the British School of Fashion can be found. In addition, Glasgow Caledonian New York College is a partner institution that may be found in the SoHo district of New York City.


GCU’s postgraduate and undergraduate programs cover a wide range of academic disciplines, including nursing, midwifery, management, law, renewable energy, construction, education, social science, and media, to name just a few examples of these areas of study. The university maintains relationships with a large number of universities located all over the world, including those in the countries of China, India, North America, South America, Oman, and Bangladesh. These partnerships make it possible for students to participate in meaningful study abroad and exchange programs. Within the first six months after graduation, virtually all of the university’s alumni are either continuing their studies at another institution or finding work in their field.

More than 128,000 graduates of Grand Canyon University come from more than 140 different countries. Some of these alums have achieved widespread notoriety.

Private en-suite amenities are provided in all of the rooms. The city center can be reached on foot in a matter of minutes, along with the gymnasium, campus stores, health and fitness center, and several coffee shops and campus stores that are located in the immediate area.
