The University of Winchester

The University of Winchester has excellent programmes across the Humanities, Arts, Business, Sports and Education. Three core values – individuals matter, compassion, and spirituality – influence all the university does, including teaching students in small class sizes. Students can live in on-campus housing, with their own room and bathroom.

Welcome Arrangements

  • To welcome students to the UK, Winchester provides a complimentary airport shuttle service from Heathrow to Winchester (usually on the Saturday prior to Welcome Week). When students arrive on campus, they are met by student helpers who make every effort to ensure they feel at home and have all the support they need.

English Language Requirements

  • If English is not the student's first language, the general English Language standards required are IELTS 6.0 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in writing or equivalent. 
  • This applies to the majority of courses, there are some exceptions.

Accommodation for International Students

  • The university guarantees a room in university-managed accommodation to full-time international (non-EEA) students for their first year of study, provided they hold Winchester as their firm choice and apply for accommodation by the published date.
  • Accommodation may also be available for international students beyond their first year of study, subject to availability – students must reapply for housing in each subsequent year by the deadlines published.

Bursaries and Scholarships

  • There is a range of financial advice and assistance available from the University of Winchester including alumni discounts and Winchester International Scholarships.
