BSc (Hons) Physical Education and Coaching, 2nd Year
As a subject representative I have had the opportunity to see first-hand, not only the community that I represent, but the entire student body. It is clear that both the Student Union, and the University as a whole, takes our community’s very seriously.
For instance; my course has its own subject community space where both academic staff and students have a space to relax and talk in a relaxed setting. This has enabled us as both students and people to go from strength to strength, giving a sense of belonging to every student. It is fantastic to sit in this space and read, engaging in worthwhile and engaging conversations with both other students and my lecturers.
Further, the Student’s Union promotes and supports all students. Whether that be a student studying law or a student studying sport, there is a community for everyone. For me, this is what makes The University of Gloucestershire such a special place to both study and be a part of; it is far more than just a community.
