About University of Gloucestershire

Promising a brighter future from a proud past, living and learning at the University of Gloucestershire is an education for life.

After nearly 200 years of teaching, we offer cutting edge facilities in inspirational locations, cradled by the rolling hills of glorious Gloucestershire.

We are passionate about what we do, and practising what we preach. Our motto, in spirit and in truth, means turning visions into reality, and in the 21st century we're setting our sights on improving life chances, challenging unsustainable thinking as well as reducing our environmental footprint. Running on green electricity since 1993, whether it's a student bus service or extra recycling bins, we constantly aspire to new ways of delivering a sustainable future.

We believe in education for all, not just in the classroom, but in how we live our lives. No matter what they choose to study, helping our students become better citizens of the world is at the heart of what we do. Founded on Christian traditions, our past and our future hinge on sustainability. Our five campuses work in harmony with their environment while retaining their individual characters.

A Cheltenham landmark for nearly 200 years, Francis Close Hall is home to Education, Humanities and Sciences and houses the innovative Centre for Active Learning, which is constantly developing new education strategies. Formerly a botanical garden, The Park also embraces the traditional and contemporary, from Regency villas to state-of-the-art labs.

Giving a warm welcome to overseas students, this major business school offers a wide variety of courses. We are proud of our achievements. But we are constantly working to adapt to an ever changing world, and with your help, create a better future.
