The University of Gloucestershire is a thriving and diverse community of over 10,000 students, based over three campuses, two in Cheltenham and one in Gloucester, and is also expanding its student numbers within its partner colleges, including the University Centre Yeovil.

The University offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes from Economics to Illustration and Performing Arts to Teacher Training and short courses. The courses are designed to offer flexible learning options for all its students to assist them with finding their career path. All students are warmly welcomed with academic and personal support and a wealth of resources in high quality facilities across three campuses.

A third of students studying with the University of Gloucestershire are part-time students, working alongside existing work and/or family commitments and many are studying for professional qualifications such as CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel Development) or the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). Others may be studying qualifications such as FdA Early Years Care & Education, BA (Hons) English & History or BA (Hons) or Master’s degree Personal & Professional Development.
