The University of Winchester was established in 1840 as a teacher training college and we have a long history of excellence in higher education.

Placing your career at the heart of your learning

Our courses are professionally-focused, recognising that employability for our graduates is key. We pride ourselves on our innovative and forward thinking teaching, with those teaching you at the forefront of their disciplines. Our dynamic academic environment is made up of over 6400 students studying courses spanning the arts, business, law, sport, humanities, social sciences, education, health and social care.

Scholarships, bursaries and awards

We realise finance is a big part of deciding to study at university. To help fund your studies, as well as recognising your achievements, Winchester offers a comprehensive range of scholarships, bursaries and other awards. There are no repayments and the awards are cumulative so you could be eligible for more than one.

First class facilities

In recent years the King Alfred campus has undergone much change to enhance its facilities. The £6.5 million St Alphege building opened in 2013, as a new state of the art learning and teaching building. Features include 10 new lecture rooms, and a mezzanine floor with open access PC’s. Our Martial Rose Library has over 300, 000 resources available including course-specific reading material, academic journals and DVDs.

Our club venue The Vault often hosts evening entertainment such as comedy nights and quiz nights. You can also join a variety of clubs, associations and societies ranging from book clubs to an Ultimate Frisbee team.
