The university for sustainability and social justice
As “the university for sustainability and social justice,” University of Winchester, established in 1840 by the Church of England, is a values-driven institution dedicated to teaching and research excellence.
Located in the cathedral city of Winchester, Hampshire, 60 miles southwest of London, you’ll find yourself in a quaint, historic location with a decidedly modern, campus vibe in top-notch facilities.
Nearly 7% of Winchester’s more than 7,000 students are international, and the university retains a commitment to each student growing as an individual, and situating themselves in the larger framework of social justice and sustainability, valuing all life on the planet, as well as the principles of academic freedom. Popular courses include areas such as Animal Welfare, Creative Writing, Law and Sports Psychology.
Special Academic Opportunity: Value Studies Modules, interdisciplinary, team-taught courses where students collaboratively consider fundamental ethical, political, artistic, religious and educational questions.
Centered in a compact, welcoming location, with green, eco-friendly architecture, campus life buzzes in King Alfred Quarter, just a short walk from the cathedral city. The King Alfred Centre is a social hub housing restaurants, meeting places and the Students Union - it’s the main student gathering place. You can join all kinds of sports and recreation clubs and societies including a Polo team.
This is an excellent program choice if you’re looking for a smaller, campus-based experience in a friendly, diverse community, with close proximity to London.
Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses. Here is a sampling:
- Harry Potter Studio Tour
