Over the last few years, we have invested more than £150 million into our campus to create an inspiring social and learning environment for students. The University puts our students at the heart of everything we do: dedicated to providing an excellent student experience delivering positive, life-changing outcomes - a combination of career focused courses and tailored pedagogic care delivered within a supportive community.
