First Choice For Those Who Think Differently

Our students study with us because we offer a unique learning experience like no other.

By providing just the right environment we can nurture your talents and offer opportunities that connect you to the right people, so they can see how great you are too.

Discover why our students think differently and how that makes them stand out from the crowd at our Gloucester Campus Open Evening on May 13 5:30pm - 7:30pm

What can I expect?

Our Welcome Talks will give you insight into what it's like to be a GC student and find out more about our Student Development programme, work experience and volunteering opportunities.

After the Welcome Talk you can explore the campus and its extensive facilities.

Ask a member of staff to direct you to these talks on your arrival. 


I'm interested in the business elements of fashion, including marketing and social media, which is covered in the BTEC course. My favourite part of the course was the trips - we went to milan last year! I have secured a place to study Fashion Communications at Vogue London: Conde Nast - only 30 places are available worldwide this year!
