What is a campus visit?

Campus visits are an opportunity to explore our campuses across Cheltenham and Gloucester, giving you a flavour of student life at the University of Gloucestershire.

Our student ambassadors will take you on a guided tour of our teaching rooms, lecture halls, social areas, green spaces, and accommodation.

You will have two hours on campus and in addition to chatting with our current students, we will do our best to get an academic to answer any course-related questions you might have whilst you’re here.

Our campuses are located near the centre of Cheltenham and Gloucester, so you can also take the opportunity to explore the local area and tie in a spot of shopping and dining during your visit.
