The University of Gloucestershire

We pride ourselves on putting you at centre of our teaching. Our Student Charter ensures that you gain from more time with your tutors than students in almost any other university in the UK. Our teaching staff have real-life industry expertise too, so you'll absorb unique and valuable insights. Our courses are accredited by industry bodies, with close contacts with their industries and professions. You'll also benefit from their connections through regular guest lectures from industry leaders in your field of study. We have a larger number of staff recognised as National Teaching Fellows for their teaching excellence, and a long tradition of innovation in teaching.

Student Union

The Students' Union is a completely separate organisation from the University but they give us £320,000* per year (which is just under half of our total turnover of £700,000) as well as providing an office for us on each campus. The rest of our income is made up from ticket sales, membership fees, advertising and anything else we can do to generate money. Any surplus we make is ploughed back in to SU services. We are run by a group of permanent staff as well as part-time officers (current students) and paid full-time officers (students who have been elected and who take a year out to work for us). As we are a charity we also have a Board of Trustees, which is a combination of students, the full-time officers and external experts who check our finances and that we are doing what we are supposed to. The SU has two main aims to represent students and to provide services that make life easier and more fulfilling & enjoyable for every single student at UoG. We represent students by sitting on University committees as well as local resident and council meetings. Our main aim is to make sure students get quality teaching and learning so we run the course rep system as well as campus life and student life meetings with the University to provide student feedback. Democracy is at our core and we actively campaign on issues that are relevant to students. The services we run include volunteering, societies, sports clubs, freshers' week, the summer ball, student media (such as Tone and Space), jobshop, and we also promote weekly nightclub events. We employ student staff where at all possible and are working hard to ensure that the Uni do the same. We do not run the campus bars but we have branded them up as SU spaces as we sit on the management committee and help with the events they run and decide on the products they serve to ensure they are student-friendly.
