What’s it like to study a Masters in Cirencester?

Known as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’, Cirencester is a large market town on the edge of the Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty.

It was a significant settlement in Roman Britain (second only to London) when it was known as Corinium. Cirencester subsequently became an important centre for the medieval wool trade, serving as the market town for nearby towns and villages such as Fairford, Cricklade, Quenington and Hatherop.

Today Cirencester is a quiet town characterised by independent shops and historic architecture. The cobbled market square is still in use and the striking 15th-century St John the Baptist’s Church attracts large numbers of visitors and worshippers. The town’s Roman influence is still visible in the remains of its nearby amphitheatre and the remarkably well-preserved Chedworth Roman Villa; many Roman artifacts are also displayed in the town’s Corinium Museum. Other popular attractions include Cirencester Park (featuring Britain’s tallest Yew hedge), the Brewery Arts Centre, and the nearby Cotswolds Water Park.

Despite its small size and countryside calm, Cirencester has ample student nightlife with many clubs, pubs bars and restaurants.

The town also has close links to Bath, Bristol, Oxford, Cheltenham and is a short journey from London.
