With vibrant nightlife, cafe culture, museums, cinemas and plenty of shopping you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy bustling city life alongside studying in the countryside. Degree students also have the option to live on site at University of Winchester to get the whole university experience as well as access to the student union to join in on all the entertainment, clubs and societies.
