Academic partners and courses

We work closely with carefully selected partners to deliver our degrees at several UK and overseas​​ locations.​

​​​We understand that not everyone is able to come to us to study.

Students wanting to study a University of Gloucestershire programme come from a variety of backgrounds and have​ varying levels of experience.

This is why we work closely with carefully selected partners to deliver our degrees at several UK and overseas​​ locations.​

When students apply to study, they can also apply for existing learning and achievements to be recognised to avoid any duplication of previous learning. We have agreements in place with a number of partners to guarantee progression and recognise entry with advanced standing onto specific courses. ​

Our academic partners collaborate with us to deliver validated study programmes taught at schools and colleges around the world.​​

International agents

We also work with a number of international agents across the world to support the application process for international students.
