Get Uni-Ready

Join us on Saturday 27 April 2024 for the opportunity to experience life as a student at UoG. Get Uni-Ready is all about preparing you for the best possible uni experience.

Get Uni-Ready on Saturday 27 April, 11am – 3pm. Explore the campuses where you’ll be studying, discover the local area and view accommodation options to see where you could be living. You’ll also get the chance to meet current students and future friends.

Depending on where you’ll be based, your day will either start at our vibrant Pittville Student Village in Cheltenham, or our modern Business School at Oxstalls Campus, Gloucester.

If you’ve recently attended an open day, we still recommend booking onto the Get Uni-Ready event. It differs from an open day, with practical sessions that help you prepare for student life.
