The University of Gloucestershire is made up of three campuses, two in Cheltenham and one in Gloucester, and was awarded university status in 2001 following the merger of numerous institutions. 8,500 students are currently enrolled from over 60 different countries.
Many courses feature local and international field trips and the option to spend a semester abroad on a student exchange. Gloucestershire also offers two year ‘fast-track’ courses in Business, allowing students to enter the workplace or further training faster and at a lower cost. The University has also been awarded 14 National Teaching Fellowships and have a strong portfolio of lecturers with industry experience.
The Student Services Team works to ensure that international students receive comprehensive and relevant advice. Each campus has a Helpzone where students can receive support and assistance on issues they may be facing. International Student Advisors help current international students have a successful and enjoyable time while studying. This includes the International Welcome Week which gives students access to all the information and support they need before they start their course, while throughout the year, various trips, parties and social events are organised for international students.
Following the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, 25% of University of Gloucestershire’s submitted work was class as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
