Get uni ready

Join us at our ‘Get Uni Ready’ event and discover why UoG is the right choice for you.

Get Uni Ready is your opportunity to experience life as a student. The day is all about getting you prepared for the best possible uni experience.

You’ll get to explore the campuses where you’ll be studying, view accommodation, and have the chance to meet current students and future friends.

Depending on which course you hold an offer for, your day will either start at our vibrant Pittville Student Village in Cheltenham, or our Business School at Oxstalls Campus, Gloucester.

Date: Saturday 27 April 2024

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.

We’re still finalising the sessions for 2024, but last year’s event featured a range of cooking demos, local business on-site, laundry tours, free ice cream. Expect a similar lineup plus lots more this time around.
