Is Gloucestershire the place for you?

If you can't decide between living in the city or the countryside, Gloucestershire allows you to have both. For those wanting to study leisure, tourism or hospitality, there are few better places to study in the UK. The student community at Gloucestershire is small, however; try Bournemouth for more diversity.
