Education can offer exciting and rewarding opportunities and the University of Gloucestershire is a great place to take your first steps. The University of Gloucestershire has been making a significant contribution to the field of teacher education for over 150 years and thrives on the opportunity to further enhance our longstanding international reputation for high quality teaching and research.

Our links to schools of all types mean you’ll be challenged in a variety of placements. You’ll have a chance to specialise so if you’ve got a passion such as a hobby or subject, you can bring an extra dimension to the classroom.

We are ranked in the top 10 for student experience (Times University Guide 2016) and the School of Education lead the way in high quality research, teaching and professional education.
