The University of Gloucestershire’s Students’ Union represents the voice of students on campus, with part-time student representatives in each subject area and elected officers working full-time in leadership roles.
Every student attending the university will have ample opportunities to get involved in the Students’ Union and their student society – whether it’s joining or forming a society, running for office, or simply enjoying the year-round catalogue of activities and events.
Joining a society is a great way for students to meet others who share their interests and hobbies and to socialise after lectures.
Overseen by the Students’ Union there are over 80 student-run clubs and societies to join, ranging from the Biology Society to the Dr. Who society. Sports clubs include cheerleading, dance, rowing, trampolining and American football. Sports are a great way to get healthy and make new friends beyond the lecture theatre, and the involvement of all is encouraged by fostering an inclusive environment regardless of skill level.
Gloucestershire is a beautiful county in the southwest of England, with close proximity to Bristol to the south and Birmingham to the north, two vibrant cities famed for their multiculturalism, and good links to London. Cheltenham and Gloucester might be small, but there is still a lot for students to get excited about, with over 100 bars and many more restaurants, clubs and venues catering to the student community. With over 45 festivals each year, the county is also a hub of cultural festivals, from the world-famous Cheltenham Jazz, Science, Literature and Music Festivals to Wychwood and Cricket, providing a vibrant atmosphere all year around.
For students who want to enjoy the peace of the countryside, it’s within easy reach of both towns, with the Cotswolds providing some of England’s most picturesque scenery: a great way to clear your head after a week in the library. And for the more adventurous, there’s rock climbing, paintballing, kayaking, skiing, mountain biking and snowboarding – plus the world-famous Cheltenham Racecourse and Gloucester Rugby’s Kingsholm Stadium.
