APPLICANT DAY PROGRAMME


“Coming to an applicant day at the University of Gloucestershire was really worthwhile. It was great to spend time on campus, talk with lots of other prospective students who were in the same boat as me, and to explore the lovely town which has become my home. There’s no better way to see if the university is right for you than spending some time getting to know the place.” Billy Jones, 2nd Year student
