Welcome to the University of Gloucestershire!


First of all congratulations and welcome to the University of Gloucestershire! You’re about to start one of the most exciting adventures ever at university, and we as the Students’ Union are here to help you make the most of your journey.

The Students’ Union primary purpose is to represent students in a huge range of ways; we provide opportunities for you to make friends, enhance your CV, find a job, put on amazing events and so much more!
