Deep Dive Day 2024 – Fine Art and Illustration

Date / Time

12 June 2024, 10am - 2:45pm


Francis Close Hall Campus


GL50 4AZ



Open to Year 12 (or equivalent) students

Join us at our Francis Close Hall campus as part of our Deep Dive Sessions where students will get to take part in interactive, in-depth sessions with our lecturers and facilities to find out more about either Fine Art or Illustration at University of Gloucestershire. The day will allow students to spend more time than ever in our facilities to immerse themselves fully in the subject areas. 

The full breakdown for both options can be seen below. When booking, please let us know which strand you are interested in.

Please note, there will be the opportunity to visit our Degree show at Park Campus as part of the day. As this is at another campus, this can swapped to a Studio tour or Student Q+A at Francis Close Hall. When booking, please do let us know if you have a preference for this session.

If you would be interested in booking a place for your students (group or individual bookings welcome), please do email
