“Nido quickly became a home away from home for me; it created an environment that I can thank for helping me to flourish socially and also academically through the last phase of my student life. For anyone scared or apprehensive of moving away from home, Nido is a place that will always make you feel safe and I can't thank the staff enough for the lengths they went to in order to support me throughout my time here.”



GCU’s Open Days for 2018 will be released at the beginning of the year. Visit their website for more information on other upcoming open days.
