All the information you need to apply to University of Gloucestershire.

Talk to a current student

If you have a question about what life is really like at the UoG, you can speak to a current student. They’ll be happy to share their knowledge with you on anything from halls of residence to the best things to do in Gloucestershire in your free time.

You can also speak to a member of our team about studying with us.

Entry requirements

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to work out what your qualifications match with in the UK education system, so the following country-specific information should help you decide which level of study is most appropriate for you.

Please note that some courses may require higher entry requirements than the basic requirements described below. A course may require higher minimum results in a specific subject area such as science or math, or may require that you have previously studied a particular topic. You may be asked to interview, such as for our Arts and Health and Social Care courses. You may be required to submit a portfolio or to audition, such as for our Arts/ Performing Arts programmes. Some courses may require work/volunteering experience within the industry.

Applicants are advised to thoroughly read the course page for the degree programme to which they are applying, including the Entry Requirements section, and to pay careful attention to the conditions stated in the offer letter.



Transfer to the UK

Students who have successfully completed a Diploma or Advanced Diploma and are looking to continue their studies can transfer to us to obtain a full degree.

We have dedicated formal pathways with a number of colleges in Canada where students who have completed one of the qualifications can be considered for admission onto approved courses. View information on our approved pathways and progression partners for Canada.

Should your degree not be listed as a formal pathway, you can still apply to transfer to us via accredited prior learning (APL).

Funding available in your country

The University of Gloucestershire is approved for provincial student aid to cover tuition/costs in several of Canada’s provinces, including Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta. Please see links below to the student aid pages held by provincial governments.

Please note: if the University of Gloucestershire is not currently approved in a province, or a specific programme is not yet approved, we can work with students on designation application forms – this process can take up to two months so will require timely attention.

*If you are pursuing studies outside Canada, you must contact Aide Financière aux Etudes (AFE) to find out the code of your educational institution and the procedure to follow to obtain financial assistance. Please note that no financial assistance is available for students in police technology or medical programs outside Québec, except for students enrolled at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine.

Meet the team

Agent representatives in your country

Local agents offer you support in your own country and language, helping you with your application, student visa, logistical considerations and questions about studying in the UK. These services are typically free of charge and can make the whole process easier.
