Glasgow Caledonian University

In the final year of the Theme, Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is continuing its focus on postgraduate student transitions and development of online resources to support both staff and students. The University is also looking to continue its collaborative efforts with Abertay University.

The University is also working with its Students’ Association on two projects, one complete (articulation) and one due to complete (Students’ Association support for postgraduate students). Furthermore, the University will be supporting this year’s Annual Student Summit. The Summit is an annual event where staff and students come together to discuss key issues surrounding the University’s commitment to deliver an outstanding student experience.

The institutional lead is Alison Nimmo.
