Gloucestershire is ideally located in the UK, with quick access to Birmingham, Bristol and London, yet offers students a beautiful, historic and inspiring environment in which to study. And strong national and international industry links make it the ideal location to advance your career and make those all-important professional connections.
The picturesque Park campus includes a brand-new Design Centre, a Media Centre and a Computing and Technology Suite – where design, media, engineering and technology students can get hands-on experience with the latest industry-standard technology.
At the historic Francis Close Hall campus, the university has been training the teachers of tomorrow since 1847. This campus is also where aspiring historians, philosophers, geographers, creative writers, psychologists and criminologists are inspired and supported by published experts and have access to cutting-edge technologies.
Hardwick is a hub of creativity where photographers and artists create and exhibit their work to the public and professionals.
Oxstalls campus is home to the new business school, state-of-the-art clinical simulators, a world-class sports arena, complete with top-spec sports science labs, and a specialist performing arts centre.

More than 40% of the university’s research was classified as world-leading or internationally excellent by Research Excellence Framework.
