Study Abroad at GCU

Many students choose to join us for a full academic year, or for a single semester, and find that spending a period of study at GCU is a great experience both academically and socially.  You can apply to study with us as a fee paying student for either a semester or full academic year as part of your home institution’s programme or independently.

Our programmes are modular based, allowing you to choose freely from our complete module catalogue according to your own study profile. There is no requirement to follow a named degree programme and you can choose subjects across disciplines.  Our programmes are credit-rated, allowing you to transfer credits to your home institution on completion of your study abroad. We are very experienced in credit accumulation and transfer through years of association with a wide range of international partner universities.
