“We are a new type of university. Ambitious and adaptable, we are building an institution that creates an opportunity for our students, graduates and those who work with us”, Professor Catherine Bachleda, Acting Vice Chancellor, University of Gibraltar

Why us?

  • UK-aligned standards: Get ready to go further with the University of Gibraltar. Whatever you choose to study with us, you will get a more personal learning experience at a new kind of university. Our UK-aligned, industry-led courses ensure you’re getting the skills that employers are looking for, while our smaller class sizes give you the space to explore big ideas. At the University of Gibraltar, we are driven by our mission to build an institution that creates an opportunity for our students and graduates. We invite you to join a growing community of students and take your next steps with us.

  • Small class sizes: We are proud of our size. Being a small university enables us to offer our students a learning experience that is second to none. Our smaller class sizes allow a more personal approach to teaching and give you space to really explore a subject. You will be more than just another student, you will be a valued part of the UniGib community.

  • Extracurricular activities: While being a student is about studying, it’s also about having fun, building friendships and taking part in new experiences. Whether you’re into adventure, history, sport, nature, live music, nightlife or simply enjoying a day at the beach, Gibraltar has it all. Its diverse multicultural, welcoming community make it a truly unique place to live in and explore.

  • Cutting edge facilities: Our Europa Point Campus is located at Gibraltar’s southernmost point and features leading-edge facilities designed to enhance and enrich your learning experience. Housed within a Victorian armoury, the campus blends unique historical features with modern architecture and the latest technologies to create bespoke spaces to support your learning.

  • Gibraltar is your campus: Gibraltar’s vibrant economy and unique location at a cultural, historical and biogeographical crossroads, make it the perfect place to make connections, gain meaningful industry experience and add a unique point of reference to your study. Its rich history coupled with a dynamic ‘can-do’ community provides a welcoming, safe and open environment in which to learn and live.

  • International impact: Our network and influence extend far beyond Gibraltar. As a student, you can access an international community of experts, associations and institutions that will positively impact your study. As well as benefiting from strong academic links, you can also tap into Gibraltar’s vibrant ecosystem of international businesses. Some of the world’s top businesses operate from Gibraltar meaning that you’ll never be short of opportunities to go out and network.

  • Workplace ready: Employability and professional development are at the core of what we do. We want to develop graduates who are ready for the workplace so we have built relationships with industry on a local and international level. The majority of our tutors and lecturers are practising industry professionals, their ‘live’ experience of industry standards translates into their approach and benefits our students. Work placements run throughout our undergraduate courses meaning you’ll get the skills and experience necessary to gain employment when you graduate.

  • Research that matters: Our research covers broad Gibraltar and/or Mediterranean related themes. Our two specialist institutes, The Institute for Gibraltar and Mediterranean Studies and the Institute of Life and Earth Sciences are vital branches to our research community, providing support and expert knowledge at a number of our associate campuses, including the Garrison Library, the Gibraltar Museum, and the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens.
