Preparing you for the university environment

Our teachers understand your needs and will work with you to improve your language and academic skills. You’ll be fully prepared to start learning at university and will cover all the basic groundwork for your chosen degree subject.

By the time you finish your INTO course, you’ll be much more confident in your English, research and writing skills. Your fellow students will all learn with you – you’re not alone! Your teachers will guide you and small class sizes mean more one-to-one support.

Your course options

Learn in the heart of the campus

You’ll live and learn in the heart of the Park campus and benefit from a recent £5million investment in facilities. Flexible spaces for studying include computing suites, libraries that open late into the evening, group workspaces, silent research areas and Wi-Fi throughout campus. So you can always find a study space that fits your style.

You can use the University’s virtual learning environment to download lecture notes, course content and take part in online discussions with your teachers and classmates.

You’ll be part of the University from day one. You can access libraries, sports facilities, the Students’ Union, more than 100 clubs and societies and 24/7 international student support.

A safe place to live and learn

Living in Gloucestershire is a very British experience. Think green countryside, historic towns and friendly people. You’ll be close to the Regency town of Cheltenham, which has the lowest crime rate in the South West of England. 

There is so much open space here that it’s often referred to as ‘a town within a park’. The University is located in the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty and friendly, welcoming people known for being quintessentially English. 

You’ll be just two hours away from London by train so you’re in the perfect place to experience both the traditional and modern sides of Britain.
