About Glasgow Clyde College

Glasgow Clyde College offers a wide variety of qualifications and courses at both higher education (HE) level and further education (FE). Glasgow Clyde College is the largest provider of FE in Glasgow. Our portfolio has over 1000 Modern Apprenticeships and our partnerships across industry continue to develop. Through partnership with universities, we also enable many students to continue to degree courses.

The curriculum we offer is diverse and responds to needs and demand, including developments within industry and the environment and economic activity of Scotland as a whole. Recent years have seen substantial growth in new technology used across our campuses which enhances the learning environment.

We have strong links with business and industry partners and much of our offering enhances employability by meeting employers' needs in a fast-evolving world. We cater for young students who join us from school as well as working age, and older students either studying as part of their existing occupation or learning new skills.
