I think the campus is really pretty, especially with the leaves on the teaching centre building in autumn. I’m not really involved in any clubs or societies so I can’t really comment on that. The WiFi is a bit dodgy sometimes. The facilities are really good - but I think the refectory could be made a little nicer and more environmentally friendly. The careers team and services are amazing and they will continue to help and support you even after you graduate.

My experience at university has been incredible. I feel the university goes above and beyond in supporting students especially with the Helpzone and Your Future Plan being around. They really make the university unique and ensure the success of students throughout the university with advice and guidance around any problems students may face. All our lecturers are very knowledgeable in their subject areas and provide only the best information for the modules and starting a career after degrees. I found the accommodation very nice and the schemes the university has in place such as Pittville Patrol helps keep students safe as well as supports the community!

The facilities themselves, whether it the libraries or the student help centre, are second to none. Even the system for tutorials is brilliant. However, there is a total lack of politics on campus and, perhaps as a result(?) the campus is a cultural wasteland. Nothing but sports societies abound. That is it.

I’ve only been here two weeks but everyone has gone out of their way to make my transition as easy as possible. The lecturers are enthusiastic and make a conscious effort to develop relationships with their students. The library is well equipped and easy to access, and with 24/7 availability it makes learning that bit easier. The campus is like Mary Poppins’ bag, it looks small and quaint from outside but inside is a series of lecture rooms and seminar rooms that make the most of the gorgeous building.

Used to be a good uni but with time, it is just turning into a profit-making enterprise. For the remote students/international, it is not a good choice as you don't get any support and service as compared to the money you pay the uni. Really sad and disappointed with the university's current falling ranking and provison of services!

I have the best time at Gloucestershire university. All the staff are amazing, which allows me to get all of the help I need. You really do feel like an individual and not just a number amongst the rest of the students. I’ve met life long friends and can’t wait to spend the rest of my degree here. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

All of the good qualities for choosing the university are no longer applicable. I chose the university for being a small campus with lots of support, however none of these apply anymore. It's expanding in all the wrong ways. Being split across Gloucester and Cheltenham, is very annoying as everything seems to be happening in Cheltenham which makes you feel left out at Gloucester. I would never recommend a friend to go hear. For example for one of the stupid mistakes they made on our placemmt year was to send an email to our entire class to say we had failed, we didn't recieve and apology given it was the students that brought it up just another email to say ignore the message you may receive another one. Appalling all round.

I was reeled in by an inspiring open day at FCH Campus, which is nice, but my course turned out to be disorganised, unmotivating and overpopulated. Lecturers have passion which is good but never have enough time to actually help. Sports societies are all in Gloucester meaning I’d have to spend 2/3 hours, 3 days a week on a bus getting there so I quit after a while. Careers people told me putting references in a CV is pointless for some reason and the HelpZone pretty much disregarded me trying to get mental health support. I’ve thought about transferring many times.

The FCH campus is a beautiful setting in which to feel inspired. The lecturers (Creative Writing) are brilliant at what they do and teach with such enthusiasm and passion for their subject. I’ve found the ‘Your Future Plan’ team very helpful in preparing me for work after uni, during my studies. An all-round positive place to learn, with an abundance of opportunities to grow.

I'm sure some of the reviews on here are written by the uni trying to cover up the truth. Terribly run, low value for money university that lacks any form of community, has lazy lecturers who seem to have given up, and a town that offers nothing for students. Poor organisation lead to huge gaps in lectures, there were periods where I didn't have lectures for over 2 months, with no good reason. I feel cheated and should have gone to a different uni.

I have just completed the BA Hons Film Production course. An exciting open day mislead to 3 years of disappointment. Facilities are great, but lecturers both teach and mark lazily. Promise of meeting industry professionals and being put into work experience in professional film companies was all extremely exaggerated. In hindsight I would avoid.

The overall experience studying in this university for almost 3 years has been great and am satisfied with the guidance and help from tutors and staffs from the help zone. In terms of further development regarding the facilities of this institution, a free bus-pass is to be provided for each student to easily access their journey from Cheltenham to Gloucester.

As a soon to be second year student at the University, I am loving my course and have always got access to the resources I need to write my assignments to the best of my ability. The university also has a fantastic welfare team to help with non academic and academic concerns and difficulties. Couldn't have chosen a more supportive, friendly and facilitating university.

An amazing University with inspiring staff who are motivated to help you in any way you need private or study related. This is especially prevelant in the Religion, Philosophy and Ethics department as they do care about the students and will let you arrange as many 1 to 1 sessions as you want.

There wasn’t a lot to get involved in. Class sizes were very small and so were the campuses. There weren’t many opportunities to make friends. The lecturers were very nice and intelligent but things were badly organised and run and so relationships with lecturers were sometimes strained

I immediately fell in love with the university of Gloucestershire due to it’s magical Hogwarts feel. The staff are supportive and you are treated like an individual rather than just a number or a statistic. I got a job immediately after studying my degree as the university is valued highly by the community.

This is an arts college that offers university courses in IT. DO NOT study any technical IT course here. Waste of time and money. Zero support, poor quality lectures and lecturers, actually discourage many good placement opportunities. Facilities are great. Staff are dreadful. And support for any non-art course is horrendous.

Small uni on sites in Gloucester and Cheltenham but loads of different courses. Small numbers on courses which means more individual attention and the students that actually get places are of a good standard. Lecturers are good quality. Most courses have decent trips. Student life is good, so many clubs to join. Nightlife is limited to a few clubs but better for that. SU work hard to include everyone. Mental health is a priority and lots of help is available if needed. Uni accommodation in 1st year is expensive but of a decent standard.

The societies other than the sports teams are lacking and there is little university pride. I am often dissociated with the university itself and do not feel a part of a community. There are facilities in terms of course-related equipment such as editing and recording studios, however there is a lack of of gym and/or pool. Though the university does have SU bars I have not seen them even half way busy since the first day of fresher's. Having said this, the campus is very attractive and there are loads of nice places to sit and chill out or have lunch. There is easy access to campuses with a frequent bus, which the university provides a very small discount for. However, unless you live in Cheltenham but study in Gloucester or vice versa, this is not too much of a problem as Cheltenham is flat and walking or cycling is common and easy.

The campus is beautiful, I'm big on aesthetics, and it really suits that side of me. It's a genuine place, uninterrupted by the attention larger universities get,which makes it feel more authentic. My proffesers are there because they love their subjects and their contentment reaches through to students. The facilities are genuine and well used. They are nowhere near as plentiful as other places, but they suit us.

Wonderful small university which doesn't have a large intake of students; thus ensuring the lecturers will always be there to help. Much more personal than larger unis and the education I still substantial. It's easier to get the help and get your voice heard because of the smaller capacity! However, small doesn't equal not as good! The lecturers are extremely intelligent and the psychology course offers a huge variety of subjects and teaches more about qualitative methods than a majority of other universities! Much more critical towards the approach of psychology and such. The facilities are still pretty good as there is some good technology; e.g. psychology has an EEG lab. Overall, I love this university and truly believe that it is one of the best due to the personal relationship you can have with lecturers, amazing syllabus which teaches a variety and brilliant facilities!

I have just finished first year however, I already begrudge the fact that I will have to remain at this university for 2 more years in order to qualify. First year has been hell. Living in Halls is not something I would ever recommend to anyone - the flatmates that I was so unlucky to end up with made things so horrible in the flat that I either starved or went out to dinner, rather than stepping foot in my own kitchen. A few of the girls I lived with are also on my course and they really crossed the line from 'banter' to bullying. Leaving me with a massive loss of confidence and struggling personally. The lack of support I feel from the tutors made me unable to talk to someone about their behaviour and so I suffered in silence and my Mother, now I am home for summer, is repairing the damage. There's no support at all. Clubs and societies are used for nothing other than 'status' and drinking and who can sleep with the most people. Summary: don't go here, I hate it.

The campus I use (Francis Close Hall) is great. It's very Harry Potter-esque in terms of appearance. On campus there's student services, reception, counselling service, Student Union, careers team, educational support teams etc. there's so much available in such a small campus and the staff do their best to help. The library is open 24/7 and is really good, it has a lot of books, including online access (journals too).

Accommodation provides plenty of privacy and own living space. Oxstalls gym is well equipped, but no deadlifts allowed? Ridiculous health and safety reasons which is due to their own fault by putting weights on top floor. However, gym is cheap. Clubs - large emphasis on 'going out'. Because of the focus on social outings rather than progression, most captains/coaches are chosen based on if the face fits without consideration for skill or experience. However, some societies are a contrast and have a real vision for improvement but are underrated (weightlifting). Careers Service - AMAZING, unless you're a sports student. No consideration for this large student population with exceptional talent. Tutors - Supportive pre-2015... After that, the support from tutors is almost negligible. Only a minority of e-mails are returned. Perhaps due to over investment in facilities/GrowthHub, tutors no longer cared for? Disappointing experience - Not for those who are serious about their future.

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.

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.
