The University of Gloucestershire is delighted to be approved for tuition benefits through Veterans Affairs/GI Bill, and therefore able to support the further education goals of eligible service members. In order to use VA funding there is a course (degree programme) level application that must be completed, and documentation to complete. Our Americas Manager is here to help with this process and welcome US vets to Gloucestershire.
We are not a FAFSA-enabled institution, which means that we cannot process federal loans, grants or work-study.
We are, however, able to accept students who are self-funded or who fund their tuition with loans from private lenders, such as Sallie Mae or recognised banks/credit unions. The money must be given directly to the student, who can then pay the university.
Independent scholarship and grant awards may be used to fund study at the University of Gloucestershire as well. If you are eligible for an award and want to check that we can accept it, please contact us by email at email@example.com. Sponsored students can find out more about payment details by visiting our How to pay page.

The academy will play against regional, semi-professional and youth professional teams in the UK. It offers a total football experience for students as they reach their optimal playing potential alongside their degree programme. Students can also earn their FA coaching license and referee license.
