Gloucester is a city in the south west of England, around 100 miles from London and near to the border with South Wales. Though the city is one of the UK’s smaller higher education centres, it is home to one local university campus and located a convenient distance from other important UK institutions.
Gloucester has long been an important trading centre and administrative hub, giving its name to the surrounding county and region of Gloucestershire. The modern city is primarily associated with financial services and associated businesses and was the base of the national Cheltenham & Gloucester bank until its transfer to TSB Bank in 2013.
It is also the home of many important heritage sites (some dating back to its development in the Roman period) and is renowned for Gloucester Cathedral, the origins of which can be traced back to the 7th century and which recently became even more famous after being used to film parts of the Harry Potter film series.
Postgraduate students in Gloucester live and study in an attractive part of southern England, with easy access to scenic regions such as the Wye Valley and the Cotswolds. Gloucester itself offers modern shopping and entertainment facilities alongside its many heritage sites and is well connected to other cities in the region.
Though there is no local university in Gloucester, the city is home to an important campus of the University of Gloucestershire (which also maintains facilities in nearby Cheltenham). First established as a mechanics institute in 1834, the University of Gloucestershire gained its full charter in 2001 and is well ranked in a number of subject areas.
Other prominent university cities within reach of Gloucester include Bristol (around 30 miles away) and Oxford (around 40 miles away). The specialist Royal Agricultural College is also located in nearby Cirencester (around 15 miles away).
Gloucester has a strong background in the aerospace industry, with landing gear specialists based on the outskirts on the city along with Dowty Propellers, part of GE Aviation Systems. Insurance company Ecclesiastical Insurance is also headquartered in Gloucester.
