Wiltshire College and University Centre


Student life

We know that attending university is about more than simply studing and securing your qualification.

You will want to make the most of your time here and university is a great way to meet new people and make new friendships, some of which will last a lifetime.

At Wiltshire College & University Centre, we are sure we have everything available to ensure your enjoyment and participation in student life extends well beyond the classroom.


What's it like to live in South West?
Check out our region guide

The South West of England is made up of seven counties, with rural areas surrounding key student cities – from Plymouth and Bournemouth up to Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham & Gloucester.

You'll find many a festival – including the world-famous Glastonbury. And if you're a cider or cheese buff, you'll have plenty to try in the South West. You can always walk it off in Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, or beautiful countryside from the Cotswolds to Land's End.

Cornwall, Dorset, and Devon are big coastal favourites, with idyllic beaches and waves to test the bravest surfers.
