Scottish university to sell ‘white elephant’ US campus

A Scottish university that became the first in the United Kingdom to open a campus in New York is to end the arrangement, reports BBC News.

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) launched GCNYC in September 2013 but it struggled to attract students and was unable to award degrees until nearly four years after it opened. GCU said the campus had “not reached its potential” and that the university would look to exit New York.

The project was given £26.5 million (US$33.1 million) in loans and grants from the university. Critics have dubbed the campus a ‘white elephant’ and there have been calls for an inquiry into what went wrong.
