University of Gloucestershire Reputation

The University of Gloucestershire has three campuses situated over Cheltenham and Gloucester and is made up of a community of 10,000 students. Each campus is close to the centre of either Cheltenham or Gloucester and connected by an intersite bus service.

Both Cheltenham and Gloucester boast a huge number of pubs, clubs and restaurants as well as festivals, performance venues and shopping. Cheltenham also has a 13 screen cinema and many leisure facilities.

Each campus has facilities and advice bureaus for those students wishing to add skills and experience to their CVs in areas such as internships, paid placements, skills workshops, volunteering and EGGS (Employable Gloucestershire Graduate Scheme). The EGGS scheme enables students to earn accreditations and awards for work completed outside of studies.

Every year the Students' Union raises £1000s through RAG and encourages students to get involved in various ways, such as giving swimming lessons to children and hosting social events for the community. There are over 100 societies and sports clubs to get involved in from anime, creative writing and snow club to street dance and poker as well as opportunities to learn to broadcast on 24hr student radio station, 'Tone Radio' or writing for 'Space' the monthly student magazine. Across the campuses there are several bars and venues that host regular club nights, quizzes and events throughout the year. There are also numerous shops, places to eat, cafés, chill-out zones and banks, plus a JobShop for helping students find part-time jobs that work with full-time study. As well as jobs in the local community, JobShop is also the place to go for those who would like to work on campus.



There are many sporting facilities and programmes available at the University of Gloucestershire. These include outdoor pitches, a studio, sports hall and a sports therapy clinic. Nearby students can enjoy watching major sporting events including Premiership Rugby Team, Cherry and Whites, Cheltenham Town FC and Cheltenham Races. For those that want to get more involved in sport off campus, Cerney Lakes offers canoeing, windsurfing and other water sports, while the Cotswolds is ideal for cycling enthusiasts.

The University of Gloucestershire places a large emphasis on building relationships between students and the business world. For those individuals that want a chance to start their own business, the Business Planning programme is there to help, and alongside awards for enterprise, can help give students a real leg-up with relevant advice and resources.

Lecturer "too busy" to mark any work, but requires it hand written, then scanned, then sent to her so that she can see that we are doing it, Of course we don't ever find out whether it was right. Who would have thought that merely doing the work, without any feedback, would magically improve our work? Computers are still windows 7, take ages to start and freeze, the circle of doom. Online library can't find half the stuff it thinks it has, makes looking for sources really annoying. Loos are awful, don't flush. Nowhere on campus to sit and eat your lunch, or just hang out. Staff seem to have given up.

There are three campuses all with different facilities. The campus i study on is FCH- Francis Close Hall. There are loads of clubs and societies to join at the university. Excellent Wifi on campus and halls of residence. The careers service also known as the Future Plan team are very helpful and offer a range of help from work experience, volunteering, internships etc.

The campus is extremely pretty and it's reasonable size. However, the university it's self is extremely unorganised and can be very unreliable due to constant timetable changes and cancellations. Personal tutors are meant to help and support you yet there always asking you to go to student achievements who are just as useless. Careers advisors are good at helping and supporting. Internet can be tempential . Cheltenham is a small town and doesn't really have a lot to offer.
