We care about the future of both our students and the planet and have been named the UK’s No.1

Will I love life in Gloucestershire?
Gloucestershire offers the best of both city and country living. It’s as vibrant and innovative as it is
historic and beautiful. Our county isn’t what you might expect. Sure, we have plenty of cheese
(rolling), cows and outdoor activities across the Cotswold Hills. We also have world-famous festivals,
international-standard sports facilities and an eclectic mix of music, venues and nightlife.
You’ll never be just a number to us. We have small class sizes and outstanding student support
teams that offer 1-to-1, confidential advice to help you make the most of your time here. And with a
personal tutor assigned to you on day 1, there will always be someone available to support and
advise you throughout your studies.
Discover who you are and what you can achieve when you set your mind to it. University is about
more than a career – learn how to live independently, make lifelong friendships and try new things.
It’s okay to not know everything – you’ll learn a lot on your course and a lot off-campus too.
You’ll experience new things that will shape your future, like developing new skills at one of our
clubs and societies or going out of your comfort zone on an international trip. University is a journey,
and we’ll be right there with you.
How can I protect the planet?
There are many ways to get involved with protecting the planet and creating a better environment
to study in. You can help to lead the way through research and field trips, community action and
climate strikes, and as part of your course.
That’s why we’re the UK’s most sustainable university.
