||The University of Winchester is located close to the centre of the ancient cathedral city of Winchester, an hour away from London in the shadow of the beautiful South Downs. It also has a site in Basingstoke known as Chute House in the heart of its vibrant commercial sector.
Winchester is a university on a human scale, with under 6,000 students studying a broad range of programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The culture of the University is informal, with an emphasis on providing a supportive community for students to unlock their potential and become the best they can be in their chosen careers.
The institution has a long history, having been established in 1840, and it combines this heritage with innovative and forward-looking teaching and learning. Research and knowledge transfer is also key, underpinning all our teaching, from Foundation Degree to PhD level. Winchester has scholars who are at the very forefront of their disciplines.
