    im from gloucestershire....so perhaps i can help?

    University of gloucestershire does have more than one campus but the main one is the park campus, which is situated in cheltenham, a really nice area. Theres lots to do and the night life is good.

    Was there anything in particular you wanted to know?

    lol, gloucestershire is located in the south west of england, near(ish) to bristol. the campus' for the uni are: park campus, pitville campus, francis close and oxstalls. take a look at their website: www.glos.ac.uk. i have no idea what the L stands for, even from looking at the ucas website, but the uni website may help. it will be easier for me to tell you about the area once you know which campus youd be studying at, and/or where youll be living.

    sorry if thats not much help!

    i'm from tewkesbury (just down the road fromo cheltenham/ gloucester). i will probably be studying at the park campus this year. i think there are four campus altogether, both in chelt and glos so i would advise looking at their website to see where you could be. i moved into london to do my a levels but have since moved home and i am looking forward to starting there. its not a bad place really...! anything else you want to know?

    the nightlife isn't bad in cheltenham (not compared with some places, anyway) and the campuses are located all around cheltenham and gloucester, i think, which are both nice areas (some might say cheltenham is nicer than gloucester, but it depends on where you go). i don't know what the PGCE course is like there, but i'd look carefully, because although it has a good reputation for some subjects, the uni also has a very bad reputation for other subjects. and i'm not saying that in a snobby way, i am simply repeating the sentiments of some people i used to work with who went there.
