University of Gloucestershire

A number of learning institutions were merged in 2001, to become what is now called the University of Gloucestershire. Cheltenham and Gloucester are home to the three campuses of the university. There are 8,500 students enrolled right now, and they come from more than 60 different countries.

Students enjoy the benefits of high quality education in some of the most historic, beautiful, and interesting locations in the entire UK. As the university is in the centre of the country, exploring the rest of the country is also much easier.
