Discover University of Gloucestershire

We’re committed to reducing our environmental footprint and protecting the wider world. That’s why in 2020 we made the decision to ditch our printed prospectus. Doing so has saved 23.3 million litres of water, 11.6 million pages from landfill and over 1,160 trees – a decision we believe has been well worth taking.

Our prospectus information is easily accessible on our website. On this page you’ll find all the key links for joining UoG as an undergraduate or postgraduate student.

Read more about our commitment to sustainability including planting one tree for every UCAS application and our ambition to be carbon net zero by 2030.

With more than 45 festivals a year, an eclectic mix of music and nightlife, and a wide range of sporting activities on offer, adventure is right on your doorstep.

Over 45 festivals each year, placements with global businesses on your doorstep and over 500 bars, clubs and pubs.

Cutting-edge campuses

Our campuses are spread across Gloucester (Oxstalls) and Cheltenham (Park, Francis Close Hall and Hardwick). Each campus boasts industry-standard facilities to prepare you for real-world practices – from leading-edge bioscience labs to specialist media studios and editing suites.

We continually invest in our facilities to ensure students benefit from the latest technologies used in industry.

Work started on our Gloucester city campus project in summer 2022 to transform Gloucester’s Debenhams building into a modern centre of teaching, learning and community partnerships. The 20,000m² building will be home to our School of Health, with the first students set to move in from September 2024.
