Welcoming students from the Channel Islands


The university usually interviews for Primary Education courses on Jersey and Guernsey if there are enough applications to support this.  This is likely to happen in December in Jersey and March in Jersey and Guernsey.

University support packages

Channel Island students, on non-Primary Teaching courses are eligible to apply for the Academic Achievement Awards and the Winchester Scholars Scheme.

Placements and work experience

The University of Winchester tries hard to arrange 1 teaching placement on the islands if wanted, although many students prefer that such experiences take place on the mainland.


The University of Winchester has 100 ex-students living and working on the Channel Islands and we can arrange to meet with alumni during our regular visits.

Channel Islands Awards

Channel Islands students, on non-Primary Teaching courses, are eligible to apply for Academic Achievement Awards and the Winchester Scholars Scheme.

More information can be found on the Scholarships, bursaries and awards page.

In recognition of the quality of personal statements that we receive from the Channel Islands students, we have introduced personal statement awards of £250.  Each year two awards are given to Jersey students and two to Guernsey students who enrol at Winchester and produce the best statement as part of their application.
